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!
Not like a Les Paul, but the Charvel 750XL was shaped like a Jackson Soloist, had a thick mahogany body and maple cap like a Les Paul, 24.75 scale, locking trem, 24 frets. Shawn Lane used one on Powers of Ten.
Allan Holdsworth. I take what bits I can actually play of his and try to incorporate it into my thing, whatever that is. I'm OK with not being able to cop his thing, I don't have 2 lifetimes to try to figure all that out. LOL
It'll never sound just like a Les Paul no matter what you do to it, as the scale is different, the mahogany body is thinner, thicker maple top, etc. But they are great guitars, they have their own voice.
Nabbed this old '80's Westone Prestige 250 recently. Saw it in a shop, plugged it in and played it for 2 hours. LOL The pickups actually sound really good. The coolest feature are the tone knobs. They have a center detent. Roll it left and it works as a regular tone control, roll it right and...
Dean Markley CD60. Sold it to get a Mesa Boogie. Realized shortly after I got the Boogie that I liked the Dean Markley better. Fast forward 35 years, I was feeling nostalgic and decided to pick up a old CD60 again. Sounds as good as I remembered.
