• 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!

    1976 Limited Edition Explorer serial # Range

    The decal should be a sticker with gold lettering and numbers on it. The easiest thing would be for you to post a pic of what you have, rather than having us try to blindly guess.

    1976 Limited Edition Explorer serial # Range

    If the serial number is on a decal, it’s a 1976.

    Les Paul Identification

    On Larry Carlton’s 335, there is a spot you could have put the tailpiece that would look “correct”. This guitar has no such spot. Let’s assume that the bridge is in the right place for its scale length (or the intonation would be completely off). For the tailpiece to be positioned where it...

    1996 Historic Murphy Aged compared to 2013 Historic

    If a ‘96 is Murphy aged, it’s an aftermarket job.

    Les Paul Identification

    The inlays, the open book on the headstock, tailpiece placement, knob placement... it doesn’t look like anything Gibson made.

    Harry Cody - Second Coming

    Yes, I did all the vocals... and everything else. The vocals and guitars were left a bit sloppy on purpose. I figured I’d want to make changes to lyrics, solos and guitar arrangements before calling it finished - I always do - so I just recorded rough sketches. I did that demo during a rather...

    Thoughts on this Gibson SG 1969 Natural?

    This model didn’t appear until 1971, so the seller is off on the year. This style of SG (with the Les Paul-ish pickguard and the controls on a plastic plate) is the least desirable period of SGs, with a reputation for being not just hideous, but of crappy quality.

    Who made the "Deluxe" tuners after Kluson went under?

    A quick search tells me that Kluson stayed in business until 1981; Gibson, however, switched to Schaller in ‘76. For the last couple of years, the tuners were, to my understanding, made by Kluson, but marked “Gibson Deluxe”. It’s perfectly conceivable that less used models like the strip tuners...

    Hi Daniel! I looked at your art... man, you’ve got skills! The portraits are very vivid, and the vehicles look kick-ass! Of course I remember Lidköping, Götene and (naturally) Skövde - I’ve either been up to no good or hung over in each of those places, and I’m not even a hardcore partier by...

    9-2180 - Lorelei

    If you've been hanging around here, no doubt you're aware of the legal wrangling over 9-2180. Well, after 2+ years, it's over... and it's a happy, non-contentious ending! Craig Chaquico (of Jefferson Starship and solo fame) and I finally sat down in a room and worked it out, musician to...
