• 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!

    What does the "T" stand for?

    In current Gibson Model names, a lot of them have a "T" after the name, like "Gibson Les Paul Standard T." What the heck does the "T" stand for anyway?

    Drop-in replacement bridge for an Epi Korina V?

    Does anyone make a bridge that would fit on a made-in-China Epi Korina V without any modifications? I've replaced the pickups and pots, I think the bridge is the next thing that needs an upgrade.

    Hiwatt Bulldog DC-40 combo any good?

    I've got a line on a Hiwatt DC 40 1x12 combo. It looks to be in great shape. From what I can tell it gives up 40 watts from 4 EL84s. It's got two channels (selectable with a foot switch) and an effects loop (also footswitchable). Anyone tried one of these things? What do you think of it? Is...

    Gator SG Cases - Anyone tried 'em?

    I'm looking for a case for my '73 SG. I've got the original rectangular case that came with the guitar, but it's a piece of crap that does nothing to protect the guitar. And that was before the clasps stopped working... I've seen some Gator cases for around $75. I figure they can't be any worse...

    Trademark 10 vs. 60?

    I know a lot of people rave about the Tech 21 Trademark 10, but I was thinking of getting a Trademark 60. I don't need the extra wattage, but I'd like to have the option to change channels with the footswitch. Has anyone tried the Trademark 60? How does it compare to the Trademark 10 in terms...

    Case for my SG?

    I've got a '73 SG with the original rectangular hardshell case. The case is a POS (very poor design + years taking it's toll on latches, etc.), and I fear for my guitar every time I take it out of the house.... I've found the following cases online: *Epiphone SG case, approx $49 *MF SG Case...

    2001 LP Special - what pickups?

    I'm looking at a 2001 Les Paul Special. What kind of pickups did these guitars come with, P-90s or P-100s? I can't tell from the pictures... Thanks.

    Time Machine Boost clip

    Warts and all, here's tonight's clip... All Your Love The lead track is a Les Paul Studio into Time Machine Boost set to the "'67" mode and then into a JTM-45 clone. I think there is a touch too much gain, if I'd had 15 more minutes to record I'd have redone it and lowered the gain. Not to...
