As a member of the band Free, Paul Kossoff made a significant impact on generations of guitarists in his tragically short life. By the time Paul passed away in 1976, at the age of 25, he had caught the attention of legends like Eric Clapton and Peter Green. In part for his unique take on the dominant Blues Rock movement coming out of England, as well as for the particular and masterful vibrato work he would often weave into his music. Paul's tone was purely '59 Burst. From the infamous All Right Now (Free) to his landmark solo release of Backstreet Crawler and across a sizeable amount of session work, an original 1959 Les Paul sunburst was his constant companion.
