Great deals on musical instruments

A Gibson Les Paulguitar has been widely used on the new Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers album Mojo.

According to Petty, the band particularly liked the sound of guitar player Mike Campbell's Les Paul on one track.

As a result, he suggested that Campbell stick with the same electric guitar for the entire record.

"We got a great sound on it right away," Petty commented.

Speaking to the Chicago Tribune, he said he deliberately wrote songs that would allow Campbell's guitar to act as "another voice" on the record.

"He's very tasteful and doesn't overplay, but I wanted to create stuff where he could play a lot," Petty remarked.

Mojo is the 12th album from the veteran rock band and will be issued later this month.

Petty is also well known for his solo material, as well as his Traveling Wilbury's project with ex-Beatle George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison and ELO frontman Jeff Lynne.
