• 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!

    Beautiful! What pickups are in it and how do they sound? Does it have 500K pots?

    1980 Les Paul Heritage Elite

    If you really like the guitar acoustically and action-wise, install 500K audio taper pots with Jensen paper-in-oil caps. Keep the old parts.

    Found My Perfect Pickup Combo

    My number one Les Paul is an ‘87 Prehistoric/Standard (avatar). I put in 500K CTS pots and Jensen paper in oil caps. I finally put in pickups that give me what I want. In the neck is an early 70’s Gibson T-Top. It has the patent sticker. In the bridge is a new Seymour Duncan Whole Lotta...
