Tomorrow's Guitars Today

Interesting thread at the Les Paul Forum: is there a Pete Townshend-signature Les Paul electric guitar in the works from Gibson?

In the mid-1970s, Townshend began using (and frequently destroying) a series of specially modified Gibson Les Paul Deluxes as his main stage instrument.

I’ve written several times about what an influence Townshend was when I first began to play guitar and record music; and having seen this model guitar in action in the Who’s classic midnight movie, The Kids Are Alright, I’ll be very curious to see if this axe comes to fruition.

Or something like that.
