• 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!

    Music production experts?

    I produce music for a living and have a complex set up for work but you can make great music with a good laptop (my pref would be a Mac) and Logic Pro. Logic Pro comes with a lot of plug ins, sounds and effects and is pretty easy to learn and is not that expensive for what you get.

    Les Paul Custom - what year?

    Les Paul's especially from the 70's don't suffer from neck dive as the bodies are too heavy and are normally well balanced. That's usually an issue for lighter bodied/heavy neck guitars like the Firebird, Explorer, V etc........The LPC should have Patent sticker T-Tops. 1972 was the only year...

    Seriously considering taking the plunge on this ‘56 Jr

    If it were me I’d wait for the right guitar to come along. Personally the extreme wear and lack of original parts makes it seem too expensive. The headstock face in particular will make it hard to sell in the future. I waited and ended up with a great all original 1960 Junior at the right...

    Lockdown project re-recording guitar on The Who song Won't Get Fooled Again

    Wow that’s very impressive! Sounds great. Home recording can be very rewarding and you only need a laptop and a simple interface. So easy not like when you needed a 24 track the size of a small car! I used Logic with an Apogee One and the UAD 55 Fender Tweed Deluxe plug in. Simples!

    New Guitar Questions!

    A lot depends on your playing style and the kind of music you want to play. It's a very personal thing so hard to give opnions on the descriptions. I'd play them all and see which one resonates with you. Good luck with the search.

    Thanks for your very kind comments (y). I might have one more go at the mix and then move on to another track 🤘. While gigs are not happening it's a fun way of kinda getting to play with a band.

    Lockdown project re-recording guitar on The Who song Won't Get Fooled Again

    I wanted to learn the guitar part to Won't Get Fooled Again by The Who as accurately as possible as I'm a big Pete Townsend fan and decided to replace the guitars on the record and share the finished results. It was great fun and really interesting working out all the intricate parts and trying...

    Eelco Gelling's 1960 burst in for new strings and fine tuning

    So cool to have owned his Burst all that time. So much patina! A real rock n roll machine.
