• 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!

    Tone turds ....

    Funny you should mention Throbak's, I actually put a set in that guitar, as well as replacing the tailpiece, studs, and bridge with Pigtail parts. The addition of those parts improved the sound, but not by enough to make me want to keep it. That guitar really highlighted the importance of the...

    Sorry I don't get your reply Big Al... we all have different tastes, but an ugly top is an ugly top any way you look at it. I think if you saw the top I was referring to, you would have recoiled in disgust, then you would have plugged it in and given that ugly duckling a big wet kiss because...

    I've been lucky that most of the Historic's that I've bought from overseas have been consistently good, except for this 2010 R8 that I bought from Japan - it looked amazing and even after changing all of the hardware it still sounded meh! Interestingly the best sounding Historic that I've ever...

    New Amp - Carr Mercury V

    Congrats, I have a feeling that you're going to love it. I'm a big fan of Carr amps and I used to own one of the original single ended 8 watt Mercury amps. I've since bought a Rambler and an Impala and I'd like to get a Mercury V. Post your thoughts after you've spent some time with it.

    the R9's are so passé .... now its all about the 58's ...

    Love these Murphy Lab 58's. The figure, ageing and colour on this one is incredibly vintage looking.

    Your Worst Concert Ever

    I had a similar experience at a Whitesnake show in a small venue. I couldn't distinguish individual instruments/vocals, it was just a wall of noise.

    Fight’n words (opinion poll)

    Musically, nothing has influenced me more in my entire life than TSRTS. Seeing Jimmy strut his stuff in that movie made me practically forget about all other guitarists of the time, made me practice more, and started my infatuation with the Les Paul guitar.
