Bob Marley’s Gibson Les Paul Standard

There are a few photos in existence showing Bob Marley playing a Gibson Les Paul Standard guitar in a cherry burst finish. All of the photos show Marley sitting down, likely in a private residence or a hotel room somewhere.

So, since these are the only known photos of Bob with the guitar, there’s a high chance that this guitar did not belong to him, and that it was just something he picked up while sitting in someone’s room.
