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!
I have been playing Gibson, among others, since back in 1969. The original T-tops have been my favorite, even more than some original PAFs.
In the last few years, my BB experience has been:
2004 - R7
2007 - R8
2007 - R9
2009 - R9 50th Ann.
2010 - R0 50th Ann.
The 2009 and 2010 sounded...
The new CS 1959 ES-335 arrived yesterday. I was surprised immediately when I opened the shipping carton. The guitar is in a Lifton styled case! The Gibson lit says brown case. I love that look regardless of which case is "better".
The guitar is absolutely beautiful and certainly has the...
I just returned THREE 2021 ES-335 figured models. Each of them had different defects.
The first one had the treble side of the ABR-1 all the way down to the body and the action could now be lowered. At the 12th fret, the high E was at 5/64 and could not go lower. RETURN.
The second one had...
Is it normal for the rosewood board on these to be so light in color? I received mine today: Figured Antique Natural.
The board is the lightest color rosewood I've seen. And the flame is not as dramatic as I expected it to be.
How is the rosewood on the one's you've gotten?
Just in. I have never owned a Gibson with P90 pickups. So, this will be a new experience for me.
This thing is Heavy! No weight relief. But that's OK.
So, It's 10:45PM, I can't plug in. But tomorrow night I plan to run it through some wattage.
Gibson build quality is really great on...
I just got my 2018 R9. It has the Gibson Custom sticker on the guard. My 2009 and 2016 did not have that on them. I hate to lose it but realize it can't stay there. So what do y'all do with that sticker?
Here is my new 2018 on the left next to my 2009 Ltd Ed R9 on the right.
I had been searching for a LP to go with my R9 and my '76 BB. I thought I wanted another Historic but figured something different would be better.
I decided on this Traditional (Sweetwater edition). The Sweetwater gets AAA Top, '57 Classics, top hats with pointers. 8 lbs, 7 oz!!!!
Not that I need another guitar, but at today's price of 1199.....hmmmm
Does anyone know the story on this? Gibson does not list it.
What would be the "right" price to pay for 2010 LP Custom. It is Black with Gold hardware. MINT condition. With all case candy. Looks like it's never been played.
Has the COA.
Need opinions here. I've been out of the solidbody market for 2 years. Been buying acoustics and have not kept up with...
I just got JB060 yesterday. Had not planned on it but the thing just felt looked and sounded so good, I had to have it.
I realize it is a Memphis build, but does not fit the usual Memphis specs. Can someone tell me the differences between the Joe B ES and the Nashville/Historic guitars...
I am expecting delivery of my new ES-359 Figured Top today. I did a lot reading, talking and watching over that last few days before ordering. I have owned a few 335's over the years and, while I like then, they have always felt uncomfortable on stage. I am hoping that the smaller body on...
