• 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!

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/284381405839?hash=item423673e28f:g:FfYAAOSwdalg-cez Odd that it seems to have put itself back together and with the "original" finish.

    NVG Day Epiphone Casino

    Hi. Not a frequent poster, but a voracious reader of the forum. Acquired this gem from an estate sale. Well cared for 1964 Epiphone Casino. I was shopping for a ES-330 and this one happened upon me. It will require a setup, but not much more. Plenty of frets life, so I will leave that...

    I think I found Beano

    VGE (Vintage guitar encounter)

    Decision support for 1960 Reissue Purchase

    Hi all. I am in a position to purchase either a 1960 50th Anniversary LP (Gold Book) or a 1960 LP Standard VOS (with paper burst background COA). I am purchasing for occasional playing and will maintain a decent valuation/appreciation. I have a firm understanding of the Gold Book guitar, but...

    The guitar at the top of the page.

    Hi. I searched around and tried to figure out what guitar is in the banner for this forum. It's got to be the most perfect specimen. What is it? Reissue or real deal? thanks.

    1983 standard

    http://guitar-review.blogspot.se/2005/02/gibson-les-paul-standard-flame-top-usa.html I am new to the forum and have one of these maple neck LPs with a natural looking flame top. By the serial number, I know it's a Nashville and not an early 80s Historic. But is it special or unique in any...
