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!
New Guitar Day :dude:
Early 2012 R9 in Lemon courtesy of our own landminelenny. This one is very "Greeny" which suits me just fine :)
Took me all of 2 minutes from the text and pictures I got this morning to decide on it!
Thank you Rich!
Only recently noticed Gibson changed the front strap button screw from the smaller one, to the larger one that is still on the tail strap button. Small change but interesting.
Up until this year Gibson still used the 1 small, 1 big, screw set on the USA guitars from what I recall.
I wonder if...
Has anybody got a 2014 Les Paul with the new case based on the tough brown tolex 1990's one?
Seen a few pictures emerging online now and they look pretty tough, maybe more than the old black custom shop cases.
This has reappeared again but in HD on the tube.
For those that haven't seen it. Knopfler's Guitar Stories.
Mark's '58 Burst is shown from 21.40 into the programme. Nice to see some HD of this guitar, lovely subtle flame in the top.
Looking at getting my first vintage Gibson and have been thinking about looking for a '58 or '59 double cut LP Junior.
Do they have the same neck and fret differences as the Standards or are they very similar in specs?
Thanks for any replies :peace2
New Gary Moore Les Paul Standard announced by Gibson today..
Funny that I was thinking about the original model just earlier today!
Last week I ordered a 2013 Lifton style case from a supplier in Spain for 200 Euros.
My 2005 R9 has the Lifton Reissue case and as authentic as it looks I'm not even happy leaving the guitar in the case at home. Every time I look at the padding and support (or lack of) it makes me nervous..
Hello and welcome.
I've been reading the forums for years as a guest but recently felt the urge to get a Historic (all your pictures have convinced me!) So I got this 2005 R9 from a famous London guitar store as part of a consignment deal I have going on. All I can say is I should have done...
