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!
What's up with this?
At first it was a single post count user asking a general question with an embedded link or links. Now the member signup might be a couple months old with a few posts, and doing the same thing.
Is this a hack or am I missing something?
This is a really odd story. At first I thought it was a goof, but turns out Gibson acknowledged that it happened, explaining the guitars were “damaged with unsafe components.” Whatever that means.
CME just sent me an email advertising MIJ Fender. Not quite the bargain they were in the 90's at almost twice the price players used to buy them for back in the day. They appear to be the "ST-**" vintage spec models with basswood bodies and (I assume) crappy electronics. Pretty...
At $2500 Street I'm thinking it's not such a bad deal. Really clean Vintage BF's are going around 3k, while mint Drip Edge's are around 2k.
I've always thought the BF/early SF Fender amps are the most dependable guitar amps ever made, but at 50+ years old it might be time to lessen some of the...
Yeah, band has been on a mini, end of summer hiatus and I haven't been to the rehearsal spot since we played last. Went down to grab a guitar a couple days ago and noticed I left my reverb unit on for over 3 weeks! To be clear the reverb does not have a standby.
I was in a rush and didn't have...
Looking for suggestions.
Tried the Martin Retro's. 4-6 Strings sound really good. Can't say the same about strings 1-3.
I've played Martin Marquis for years without much thought. Either I'm getting bored or maybe they aren't sounding the same as they did in the past.
A Chicago Blues Club mainstay and personal guitar hero passed. Although he called Chicago home, he always had some swamp boogie in his playing from his early days in Louisiana and Texas.
He was part of a group of bluesman I used to see in the late 80's and early 90's around Chicago. I was a...
Love this performance and wish there was more James Gang and less Eagles in the world.
Does anyone know what his guitar and backline was at this performance?
I see small box Marshall's, but the hippy/dippy visual effects blur it out.
The LP looks like it might be a Deluxe routed for HB's...
(I hope I'm doing this right.)
I recently purchased a Couch Racer X (pictured below) as a closeout. Unfortunately for me the strap is 53.5 inches fully extended. I'm a little too tall for this strap.
Even us cowhide lovin' guitar slingers can appreciate a quality made vegan strap. Not that...
I usually don't post New Gear Day Threads. This might be the first.
Anyway, a couple days ago I stumbled upon a good old fashioned deal found in a garage. It made me reminisce about hunting for old amps back before the interwebz, so I post in honor of fun that some of us had back then. Although...
Trying to gather some information about the evolution from the late 30's ES-150 "Charlie Christian" pickup to the post war P90 guitars. What little information I've read about these transitional pickups has often proven to be contradictory to just wrong.
I'm really interested in the P13, slant...
