• 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!

    Think so? I’m not sure. I mean, both are obviously British, but their response, tonal spectrum, etc all are different to me. The CP especially…it’s almost more of a blackface Fender than a Marshall.

    Hiwatts are criminally underrated. Marshall’s get most of the love in Les Paul circles, but I’ll take a Hiwatt over a Marshall any day. Over anything, really. Love love love them.

    Of course you may- it’s my Hi-Tone CP30, a 30 watt replica of Townshend’s classic Hiwatt CP103

    From 'God' to Rolling Stone Whipping Boy in One Generation

    Rolling Stone writes the most predictable pastiche pieces and plays favorites so hardcore, it’s nauseating. No really, RS- tell me how the latest Bruce Springsteen album is the greatest thing since sliced bread- and the next, and the next (no knock on Bruce, just RS).

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

    I don’t get the feeling most people would publicly admit to feelings of regret about something like that. Or they’d sell it before they’d say anything.

    Boutique PAF war: Holmes - Throbak - Ox4

    They’re lovely- the Rewinds have a metallic chirp low-mids that’s quite unique, and the SLE’s are juicy and compress easily in the best sense. My personal preference is actually for the Mojo (Not Mojotone) PAF’s outta the U.K.- they have the perfect balance of compression and brightness, and...

    Pickups vs (everything else)

    The “lightweight sounding better” thing has more to do with the wood density that leads to that weight rather than the weight itself

    are there any ESP guitars which come close to a Historic ?

    Navigator’s. Excellent specimens, hang right in there with Historic Custom Shops.

    Anyone using Sigil humbuckers?

    Got a video of the Holy Grail set above- they’re stellar. Mine is with NOS wire and it’s one of my top 5 PAF clones of all time. A little less sizzly than Wizz, but brighter and airier than my Throbak SLE-101
