A new granite memorial will be unveiled at the gravesite of music legend [Les Paul]( on September 10th. Les Paul, who was an accomplished blues guitar player, was a pioneering inventor whose contribution to [electric guitars]( has helped musicians shape the way they produce and perform music. His estate commissioned Rock of Ages to design the memorial. It responded in spectacular fashion, creating a 500 square foot monument. Michael Braunstein, executive director of the Les Paul Foundation, said: "The memorial shares Les' legacy with all who visit the site. We are very pleased with how everything looks. "Les chose to be in Waukesha. We know the people of his hometown will cherish the site as Les Paul cherished his hometown." Les Paul, who died in 2009 aged 94, created the first ever solid-body electric guitar. He once said: "I wanted something very dense, something that would sustain long and more pieces of wood that would be soft, sweet, for more of a mellow sound."
