      Les Paul is a model, not the vendor. They are currently sold by Gibson, but I also think it would be pretty neat if they made a Les Paul "Spartan" (dual meaning, both the fearsome fighters and the adjective meaning simple and economical) with basic components, perhaps around the same quality level as a Fender Squier. I think I'll send them an email about that.
