• 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!

    The Word...

    ... "Minty" :hmm Does this word drive anyone else here nuts? It's like the one word, or term, that just makes me wanna smack somebody... and I'm pretty much a non-violent guy 99.99% of the time. It might be because I always see it associated with guitars that are definitely not... minty...

    2015 Custom Shop Guitars, my first encounter with them...

    I was over at Carter Vintage Guitars in Nashville yesterday and I check out a few new Les Pauls, man... I'm impressed! I played an R9, an R8 and a Waddy Wachtel model with a monkey bar on it. All three had the nicest necks, on reissues, I can ever remember playing. For me, the initial...

    Single 1968 Celestion G12M, model 1511 Bass Speaker, 55hz

    I found this orphan in a closet the other day. These are basically the "holy grail" of G12M's, the 55hz bass speakers. This one's from 1968. Date code: "JA"... October of 1968. Speaker cone code: 29 102 014 Model: 1511 No issues, sounds insanely great... HUGE tone out of this speaker...

    Pre-Rola Celestion G12M Greenbacks, Quad, Matching Date Codes, 75hz (lead) Speakers

    I took these out of a Traynor cab I bought about 30 years ago. I actually found 3 of these cabs that a music store was closing out and bought them all. This set of speakers were used for a couple of recording projects over the years, in a 4x12 cab, with a JTM 45 or a 50 watt plexi, they...

    Y'all see this??

    I was cruising thru some of Carter Vintage Guitars vids, with the idea of eventually going over there, with a recorder, to get some reverb impulse responses together (for mixing), as it's an incredible sounding room. Long story short I found this vid of Jd with a killer sounding Greg Martin...

    Tone...

    Yup, right here... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mVHTDZJof54 Did a little tune up and re-bias on the Purple People Eater recently, pairs up nicely with this badass guitar. One of the best bursts I've ever heard.

    OT: Tele Content... and some fine guitar playing!

    I don't work for Carter Vintage, I don't own this Tele. Just wanted to get that out of they way. Killer sounding Tele and Jd's doing it justice: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZrpgPePoJys I've always called a good Les Paul a "Tele on steriods" and it's interesting to think how many "Les...
