• 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!

    Under-Appreciated: The Les Paul Studio with M III Electronics

    I would argue that Gibson's M-III electronics are hugely misunderstood, under-appreciated and under-valued. This Les Paul Studio has all the appointments of a Standard: sunburst finish, maple cap with nice top carve, bound rosewood board and two humbuckers. But: with a flick of a switch, you...

    http://www.burstserial.com/picture.php?/5657/category/1184 Beautiful guitar! I would think that this one is well known in the 'Burst community, so the attic story would not apply to this guitar 9 1998 is also featured in Burst Believers Vol I

    1980 Les Paul Heritage Elite

    nothing comes close to a Heritage 80 - those cutaway horns are so "pointy" you can prick your finger on them ;-)

    1980 Les Paul Heritage Elite

    For your viewing pleasure (and to entice MikeSlub to post pictures of his Heritage 80, Elite, and Heritage Award guitars), here are some recent pictures of the first ever Gibson Les Paul Standard I ever bought. I am the original owner of this guitar. If it weren't for changed tuner scars...

    Vintage ES-335s 1958, 59, 59, 60, 61, 63, 64, 64

    1959 ES-345 TDN plugged into 1961 Fender Super and 1964 Fender Vibrolux Reverb

    You've posted no pictures, but I can smell that the chew marks of your control cavity are just plain wrong

    Do Scammers use Reverb?

    ... and this is precisely what Reverb indemnifies you against, and why their 9% fee is well earned. I shipped a 1973 Les Paul Triumph Bass with issues that were clearly documented and sold "as is". Buyer issued cost dispute after the fact, which Reverb managed and settled at their expense. In...
