• 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!


My name is Rick Scott and I'm a long time guitar lover/player, like all kinds of musical instruments and a bunch of different types of music. I like my guitar playing LOUD! so, it gets noisy around here. Im also a vinyl record junkie and have never reformed myself.
