• 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!

    The ULTIMATE upgrade.

    I'm interested to hear what others use for pot/cap readings as these can be customized? I've never really thought about it and it looks like you need to ask. Primarily, I play blues and am using the Seymour Duncan/Bonamassa '59 handwounds on my the R8 in my profile. Still seeking better sound.

    A sweet girl here....

    This is about as pristine as it gets. Bought this back in 1981. Guy pulled it out from under the bed. "Never played it much". She sounds as good as she looks.

    Historic Makeovers -- Which Guitar Should I send.

    Send the one that sounds worse. I had a beautiful R8 that sounded like a dog, but not any more! The BRW board and hide glue made it sing.

    Sweet Old R8! NGD

    Picked up a smokin' 1997 R8! Nice year for tops! Came with Duncan 59's I believe. They are going to go. Not that they are bad, but not what I want in my LP's. Her little sister with her isn't so bad either.....she's kinda new too! Nothing like a nice Paul!

    NGD Whitford Burst 007

    I didn't post to the thread about the Whitford Burst's becasue it felt rather tainted. There are some great responses on there, but I took offense to some of the comments about those of us who would purchase such guitars and the generalized comments about the need for a better top. First a...
