• 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!

    Left Handed Les Pauls?

    The Albions look interesting. Thanks for the heads up.

    Do you think guitar music will ever be great like it was from 1954 to 1979?

    There are great guitarists out there, but they don't necessarily play in the classic rock mode. I listen to bands such as Fleet Foxes, The Weeks, KS Rhoads, Haim, Soccer Mommy, etc... Indie bands. Classic rock is dying--bands such as Foreigner and and Kansas have one original member each, so...

    Left Handed Les Pauls?

    John Vasco, you probably don't remember me, but when I was more active here, we talked a bit about lefties, and I always loved the pics of your gear. Beautiful axes. I love the one in the first pic--Is that a refinished faded?

    The Fender Forum's Lounge

    Hey, dudes, let's go back to the site and have fun. And let's try to bring in some new, young members or members who play non-blues or bluesy rock. I've posted my idea on TFF. Get back, babies, let's rock the site again. We're all old farts. Let's get some new blood going. The young...

    The Fender Forum's Lounge

    Mike and Ken, thank you so much for what you do. I've had the idea of reaching out to younger players of indie. Those folks play a ton of Jazzmasters and Jags, and of course, Mustang, P and J Basses. It'd be very interesting to talk to these folks and find out a bit about how they approach...

    Ken, you've done so many wonderful things for our group, and no one could have done it any better. And it's time for us to play "Taps". It was a lot of fun in the old days, and I love talking to all our friends there, but it's a crippled horse that needs a bullet.

    It's like a Les Paul, but the pickups appear to have the capability for split and a push pull. I'll post pics soon.

    I'm putting a harness into my 1983 Ibanez Artist that has Ibanez's "58" pups. Hopefully, I'lll have some time to get to the job this week.

    What the British & The Irish bring to the picnic....

    Brilliant comic writers and performers. They were originals.

    I know two cables go to pickups and one to the Jack plug. Why the red cable? Trying here instead of the LPF tech folder since I know most of you.

    Ugly Strat Neck and Funky JB--My Faves

    I've got another JB that I had converted into a fretless, one of the best things that I ever did. But even as a fretted bass, I didn't feel like I could "mistreat" it like I can this little maple fretboard thingie I've put together. I lose all inhibition as a player with this one. And that...

    I was curious about how certain pups compared to others, watched a few "vs" videos. It struck me that there's so little difference between one ne humbucker and the next. And then, I came across videos of PRS vs Gibson guitars. The differences were as minimal as those among the mass market...

    The Sunday Thread (In Exile)

    It's me birthday. I woke early, smoked a joint, and played my fretless Jazz Bass--you're welcome neighbors. I wrote a silly (hopefully, funny) poem for my dearly departed Mom for Mummy's Day. I've been digging the remastered box set of The Who Sell Out. What a great and underappreciated...

    Who Ought to Play a Les Paul--Humor Encouraged!

    Ha ha ha Lez Paul? 1. My Mom can't play a Les Paul because she passed away. 2. My ex-wife hates guitars, and my kids have no arms or hands and are too lazy to learn how to play guitars with their toes. 3. My LP and I are lefty, so play it if you want to look like a goober. 4. Boris Pauloff's...

    Who Ought to Play a Les Paul--Humor Encouraged!

    Listen. If Fred Gwynn as Herman had played just one note over and over on stage and I'd been there for it, I'd have never needed to see any other live act again.

    Who Ought to Play a Les Paul--Humor Encouraged!

    Seriously, I'd like to see Clapton do a solid gig of his blues and pop/rock songs with a Les Paul of any sort. I don't want a reliving of Beano, just love it when he makes a LP scream. And even more seriouslyer, I'd like to go back in time a bit and put a psychedelically freaky Les Paul on...

    Ugly Strat Neck and Funky JB--My Faves

    For many years, my go-to Strat has been my 2008 AmStd, and my go-to Fender bass the last few years has been my AmPro P. So I put together a JB, all AmPro parts--drilled and filled in side fret dots, and she's ready to go--Now, my favorite bass when playing compared to my other basses...
