• 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!

    A Pictorial review of every burst Joe B. has ever played on stage...

    I know this is an old thread, but it would be cool to get an update? Maybe too many to count? How bout it Mike? Also, maybe Charlie can post a few recent Picts?

    Hey it's Mat from Gibson Product Development - AMA

    Mat, Any chance the Custom Shop will be doing tours soon? I'm traveling to Nashville to see Clapton in about a week or so and would love to make the CS a stop! Please DM if that is a possibility. Mark

    Joe B. at Red Rocks 2021

    Those are some stunning shots! I love the variety of guitars! Any 335's those shows?

    Clapton's amps through the years

    Going to see him in Nashville in a couple weeks. I expect to see Vibrokings, but you never can tell.

    Mike, you truly have some stellar guitars! Love the BG's! The closest I came was a '58 Esquire.

    Mapleflame Mod on a LP R8 2013

    I too remember this thread. I suggested back then the the mods make it a sticky. That much I remember? What I didn’t do was the mod itself? I may have a project for next week!

    New Gibson Korina Explorer & Flying V annnounced!

    For me, the guitars look very nice! And, I’m sure they play and sound great. But, I can’t get over the pricing structure? Not sure any other market other than guitars are doing this? Just wondering if the car market put out a replica of a 1965 Ford Mustang, could they sell it for 200K, maybe...

    Any Love for the `80's Super Champ?

    I also had one back in the day. Never could bond with a single 10 amp? Just not enough balls and bottom end. Now two tens and you're in business. I even had to put a new baffle and 12 inch in my 68 PR, now you're getting close! MHO
