Visitors to the Les Paul exhibit have a chance to learn about Les Paul, long-time Mahwah resident, inventor, musician and self-taught engineer.  The exhibit also has several new items, making another visit a must for those who have already enjoyed “Les Paul in Mahwah.”  “ECHO,” an M. Hohner harmonica used by Les Paul during the early years of his career is a new feature of the display.  Continuing as part of the exhibit is “The Log,” a fascinating visual of how a solid body guitar was built.
