• 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 2020 '60s Standard in Iced Tea with 2020 '50s hardware?

    My 50’s Standard is an Iced Tea burst However it was one of those limited runs with a AAA flame top. So I guess any kind of cross over version is possible considering the different versions they were releasing at the time. Still, it does point to QC I suppose. Also when I bought my Classic the...

    A stupid question

    Well I do tend to visit both sites. I just don’t want to be posting the same thing on both places if the same people are seeing them

    I have that guitar. 50’s standard AAA Ice Tea burst, from L&M.

    LP weights

    USA Standards aren’t weight relieved, at least not according to the specs on mine. (2019 50’s Standard model) Unless older ones were.

    A stupid question

    Yes. I found that out the hard way. Lots of newcomers get scared away never to return, I’m sure.

    LP weights

    Yah I pretty much understand all of that. But the whole idea of drilling out holes in the body is then moot. The guy who can only afford to own one LP, and wants to keep it as light as possible might buy a Classic as it’s advertised as being lighter. Even though he (or she, sorry.) really...

    Sorry, IIRC?

    And what might be the source of this data?

    LP weights

    Not that I mind. I always felt LP’s were meant to be heavy buggers.

    A stupid question

    There is another Les Paul site where the forum looks very much like this one, perhaps you people are aware of it. I am on both of them. My (stupid) question is, are they related in any way? I don’t want to be posting the identical topics on both if there is a crossover of some sort. If they are...

    LP weights

    So interesting. People often discuss the weight of their Les Pauls. So now that I have two to compare I got around to checking this out. The two models are, a 50’s Standard (2019) and a Classic (2020). The Standard is a solid body and the Classic is the 9 hole relief model. I triple checked each...

    The Fabled Les Paul/Gibson tuning issues?

    I had a little bit of an issue on my first one. Got it set up at the shop, no problem ever since. ( Thinking now it was my shitty winding which caused the tuning problem from the start) Just bought my second LP and it’s perfect after a new set of stings and a bit of nut sauce. I can play either...

    Les Paul standard 50’s vs Epi les paul

    And, um…just a side note from me. I just traded my Epiphone LP in on a 2020 Gibson Classic in Translucent Cherry. Again, nothing against the Epi, it was very nice. Just not a Gibson.

    NGD-LP Classic Translucent Cherry

    Had an itch for new guitar. I grabbed my Squire Contemporary off the wall where it was really only wall art, my Epiphone Tribute Plus which I never played since getting my Gibson 50’s Standard, and went shopping. Well to be honest I knew what I was looking for. I had seen this 2020 Classic the...

    Volume Knob on Amp doesn't go to zero???

    But does it go to 11?

    Need recommendations for "bedroom" tube amp

    Marshall DSL20 head and cab. Great sound even at conversation levels. I have no problems playing while the house is sleeping. And they are cheap as far as valve amps go.

    Albums

    It’s not one record. Analog is just better period. Even with a few clicks and pops. But make sure the master is from an analog source as a lot of lp’s are pressed from digital sources. In which case just buy the cd.

    Les Paul standard 50’s vs Epi les paul

    Your story sounds a lot like mine with both the Epi and my new Gibson Standard 50, Ice Tea-AAA top. The Epiphone is a 2019 Tribute Plus, and I must say it’s pretty much all Gibson as far as the pick up, pots, wiring, etc go. It’s actually a very very nice guitar for 1 third the cost of my...
