• 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!

    Clean players who use Les Pauls

    Old thread, but I am playing thru a Deluxe 5e3 copy. Oh boy! Nice tones.

    anyone disappointed that their Les Paul Historic is a pre 2013 ?

    My 2011 R9 is one fine instrument. Bought it sight unseen from Mark’s Guitar Loft, and the love affair continues. It has a perfect combination of lots of treble in both pickups, and good mid and bass without mud. Very articulate. That it is a looker too just adds to the vibe.

    Mold on finish

    I stored my '62 ES330TC in my humid basement over the summer, and now have a bit of mold on the finish and pickup. Any suggestions on a cleaning agent? Naphtha?

They are 8-32 x 1-1/2", stainless steel, rounded flat head, phillips. The Schallers come with #6-32 x 1, alloy steel, so I will need to mod the...

    New Bourbonburst owner

    Hey guys, Thanks to all for steering me to Marks. Picked up my first Paul (2011 R9 Bourbonburst) after playing Strats for decades, and she's a beaut and a real player. Only complaint is the case; I like to occasionally lean my Fender against the open top of its rectangular case. I'm glad I...
