• 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!

    Kim Simmons and the Double Cut

    Simmonds has been playing LPs 50 years. He has a nice looking green DC here. I have always called savoy brown music "Boogie Woogie". It's fast rock n roll with slow blues in the same song at the same time. BTW he had a DC in the early 70s with big square inlays.

    Ten Pound Standards

    Check out the new non weight relieved LPs at the end of this review of the 2019 lineup. They are Norlinesque at over 10 pounds.. I'm very curious to see how 10.4lb LPs sell. Of course there are weight relieved LPs too. I'll bet Gibson doesn't offer 10lb LPs again so get yours now. I like to see...

    Worn Case Logo

    The Gibson logo on the case of my 2014 LP Standard is the gold/black logo. This one is almost worn off yet I almost never used or moved this case. It was stored in a closet off a bathroom. It literally wore off without friction. Only the black background remains. Are their stencils I could buy...

    Bryan Ray's 59 Burst

    http://www.burstserial.com/picture.php?/3231/category/963 I read in Tony Bacon's book printed in 2014 that Bryan Ray of Paul McCartney's band had just purchased this LP 59. PS: if Whitrock sees this here's a question for him. Do real 59's use bushings set into the body for the two bridge...
