    From following Blue Note records on Instagram I came across Julian Lage, and extremely talented guitar player. He's pretty firmly in the jazz camp, but he's got tones of Les Paul in there too.

    And, the interesting thing about him, is that he plays mostly solid bodies. A quick scan through his Insta page, and his go to guitar seems to be a Collins incarnation of a type of Les Paul with P90's. Other photos have him playing with Tele's and various Gibson Les Pauls, and the occasional hollow body, but it would seem that 99% of his playing is on solid bodies. What a divine tone he's got.

    His current record "Squint" is well worth a listen too.

    The dude is wonderful. The Collings model looks fabulous too; it seems to be a take on a Gretsch with DeArmonds.
