• 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!

    Wrap tails lets see what you have any flavor !

    My only wrap tail. I would like an R4 or MIJ variant to go with it, but it will probably by an Original Collection P-90 Goldtop if prices and availability ever tip in the buyers favor, again. 2020 OC LP Special. It is awesome. I love it!

    Should I let go of this '55 TV Special I've had for 25 years?

    If it plays well, I would not do anything further to it. JMHO.

    What ToneBender model did Jeff Beck use on Truth/Beck-Ola ?

    Tonebender MK II into a solid state Rickenbacker Transonic? 🤔 A Vintage JTM45 or AC30 might do the trick, too.

    What to expect from a light Les Paul?

    There is nothing like a 6 lb Les Paul! This chambered 50's Tribute was 7lbs, 7oz. and sounded fantastic. This boat anchor is 8 lbs, but it still sounds incredible!

    1952, 53, 54, 55, 56, 57, 57 Goldtops (sorry, no 58 Goldtop)

    Mike, that is the perfect P-90 to humbucker ratio! :love:

    NAD (last night) 1982 Marshall JCM 800 4010 Master Volume 50 watt 1x12" combo

    Exactly. The 4210/2205 circuit is a different animal. The 2204 and its combo variations is one of the classic Marshall circuits of all time.

    Heard 2nd hand that one of our members reported passed away - Dan Duntze (bluesforstevie)? Any confirmation of this?

    He was one of those guys I felt like I knew just from his prolific youtube output years ago. I reconnected with him recently, very casually, on social media. RIP.

    How do you deal with...

    Looper pedal. Been that way since before Covid, though.

    The "if you had a time machine" concert.

    Jimi at Cafe Wha? or one of his early London club gigs. MC5 and The Stooges at the Grande Ballroom. The Dead Boys at CBGB or Max's, 1976 - 1978 ish. The New York Dolls at the Mercer Center. The Stone Roses at the Hacienda ~ 1989.

    My 52 (convert or to convert 2)

    A neck reset would make the P-90's need to be shimmed even higher, too. It sure looks and sounds like it plays great with the Mojo Axe bridge. Therefore, I would leave it be. But that is JMHO. A low profile wrap around would be the least intrusive mod, though. I would most certainly seek out...
