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!
These seemed to be pretty well tucked away. I seldom see them surface for sale.
What are these things going for these days?
Does anyone feel they are superior to the current crop a killer Historics with upgraded specs?
Tell me everything.
This run really took a some heat, for not being the cherryburst we saw Duane use in the early 70's, too subtle, not subtle enough, too pricey, ect.
But I'll bet the guys who own have a different story to tell.
Talk to me, cause I think they're sweet!
I've been having a good old time revisiting the Mayall Bluebreaker album and my Louis Electric 2-12 Bluesbreaker, when I read the original model was wired for 16 ohms.
I know Clapton's amp was lost years ago; but was that model really 15-16 ohms?
Sonically how would you guys say that 8 ohms...
Damdest thing, in all my years of playing I've never had an inlay pop out,
let alone 2, in the G and A positions of my Les Paul.
Ever try to play a guitar without an inlay? I really need to get these glued back in.
Any tricks I should be aware of?
More importantly, what brand of glue should...
My NEW favorite magazine!
Who needs the lession of the week anyway?
Trust me. Just the pix on pages 51 and 52 of Jimmy with #2, and Clapton during the Bluesbreaker session make it worth the price of admission.
Guitars, cars, wine. But they need more girls.
Can anyone give me some insight/experience on replacing vintage frets with say, medium jumbos or 6105's on a vintage shape/radius neck.
Most of the newer guitars I've seen/owned with larger frets have had 9 1/2 radius board.
I have a great masterbuilt 63' reissue Strat, from a limited run...
Geez, what a nusance. It's a problem on about three of my Les Pauls right now; not to mention the football switch on one of my Strats p/u selector.
I know there's a simple fix before I make the problem worse.
Well, my Louis Electric Blues Breaker arrived one short month ago and I promise a review. I've been jonesing for a BB for years. So after purchasing a KR12, I finally said,
"Lou, I want a Les Paul amp."
Lou replied, "Dave, this is THE Les Paul amp!"
To say that Louis Rosano has once again...
Did you ever swear you'd never part with anything?
My head is still spinning from the past few months, and some of it not so easy.
96' Historic Flametop, my first, but lots of upgrades since the old days.
58' Mary Ford, just an outstanding goldtop and limited.
000-28 Clapton Martin(my...
My KR12 is such an inspiring amp to play that I had to pull the trigger on Lou's Bluesbreaker, the monster 2-12,
handwound transformers and handmade speakers to boot!
(when you're handbuilding your own speakers you're pretty hardcore) :lol
Lou has been incredible to work with, spent hours with...
I wish I could report is was amazing; definitely not my cup of tea.
I was expecting to see some killer aged Murphy.
Instead it's a goldtop with a gaudy goldplated headstock, ebony fingerboard, and I think a gold pickguard.
Lot's of gold! They should call it the P. Ditty signiture model...
I've been jonesing for one of Louis's amps for a while now, and as fate would have it a KR12 happened fall my way.
How could I refuse right?
I made a quick call to Louis, who for the record is a super, super, guy and very passionate about producing great "old" amp tone.
This particular KR12...
What could I expect in term of tone and versatility. I've been searching for the the ultimate grab and go combo(if there is such a thing). I'm thinking this could be it.
I've been listening to some clips of the Two Rock Jet at www.indoorstorm.com
which also sounds impressive; but I'm leaning...
Public T.V was doing one of their fund raisers, tonight featuring John Sebastian and the Lovin' Spoonful. There was plenty of old live footage of the band performing live(well, lipsinking actually). But, the other real star on stage was his old burst which ended up featured in a slew of really...
