• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

Brazilian rosewood was used on Les Paul fingerboards in the old days. It is desirable because of its stiffness and sonic qualities, and it has a smoother, less porous texture than the Indian rosewood that replaced Brazilian rosewood.
