• 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!

    Bee Gees Burst

    Back then for me it was always the Beatles and the Stones. But my younger sister liked the Bee Gees and I had to admit that they really wrote some great songs. When Vince and Collin left in 1969 it became another band. Well, just for me. Never liked their disco stuff. (or anybody's disco stuff)

    Don Preston's sick Explorer

    ... or Claudia Lennear! I once met her backstage. Think it was in the early 70ies. Oh yeah!

    Gibson Songwriter Standard Rosewood - LEFTY

    Very cool guitar. Do I remember right that it has a bit wider width at the nut?

    Hagstrom 67 Viking ii reissue

    Like it. And you are right. To me too this model will ever be associated with the King. Glad to see that there is the "correct" headstock on it.

    1960 LH Burst or McCartney 1963 Hofner "Beatle Bass"?

    Though I know that ZZ Top was not so popular as Zep was, but regarding the guitar geeks I'd ad "Pearly Gates".

    Share Your Explorers

    Of what I once read or heard somewhere it was said that a glued 2 piece body is more stable than a 1 piece body. I'm NO expert so I don't have a clue if this is right.

    What (guitar) is Ronnie Wood playing here?

    Thanks a lot guys for all your input and informations. Wilko, I remember that photo. And IIRC I did not see the pic from back then but it was a video. And if my memories are not fooling me Keith and Ronnie told in that vid how old these guitars they were playing here are. I think I remember...

    Fender Stratocaster Gallery

    Fender Roadworn Strat MIM. Actually the guitar wasn't for sale. It was meant to go from dealer to dealer as a demonstration object when this model came out. But finally I managed to buy it. Played great out of the box. In the back left to right: Original 1992 Zemaitis Metalfront built by Tony...

    Gibson Swingmaster

    A couple of better pics. After all these years I can't remember where I have these pics from. Hope it's no copyright violation.
