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!
Has anyone here tried the Crazyparts gold CAB knobs? They look good on their website, and are priced reasonably, imo.
Gibson "favorite of the stars" and "pick of the stars" plastic pick boxes?
Does anyone here know the approximate years those cool old Gibson plastic pick boxes came out?
Some were labelled "favorite of the stars" and others "pick of the stars".
Some of them came with the black "Les...
Can anyone tell me what the thickness is of the original trussrod covers for late 50s Les Pauls? (.060" or .068" perhaps?)
There's a guy on another forum that has a 52 Les paul with .064" TRC.
Thanks a lot.
I've just acquired my first P90 equipped guitar (1963 LP SG Junior) and I was wondering how most of you have adjusted your "dog ear" 90 pole pieces?
What would a good starting point be? Ie, should the high and low E be level with the plastic cover and then the rest of the screws...
Well, I finally did it. I've been wanting one of these for quite sometime, since playing a few in vintage stores over the years. So, yesterday I bought a very cool 1963 Les Paul Junior! (SG) :) I was able to sell a bit of gear this past week...
Anyway, this one has Centralab pots dated the...
I just scanned a polaroid photo of my old sunburst Les Paul Deluxe. I traded a 63 Tele for it in 1982 or 83. I then sold it later in 1987.
The vintage guy that I did the trade with said that the sunburst was a 69. Is that possible? I think I've read recently that sunbursts didn't...
I have a Gen 1 Protector case (with 3 plastic latches) and was wondering, with the neck angle that these cases were designed for, should I put a cotton rag under the neck of my 2007 R8? I'm also looking to buy a vintage 1961 - 63 SG (junior) that would use this case.
If any of these...
I've got a lead on a 1961 Les Paul Junior (SG body)
The owner bought it in 1968 and threw the warped pickguard away in 1970.
Who do you recommend that sells an authentic replacement pickguard? It has 8 holes. Also, the screws are missing.
I'm going to be looking at a 1962 SG les paul junior guitar that has had a pro repaired headstock break. It has no other issues that I am aware off.
Everything is original and in very good shape and it has the original case. Is $2400 US way off for a (I'm told) close to invisible pro...
At some point I'd like to get a nice 1961 to 1965 sg junior.
Is there anything I should look out for?
Are there any problems associated with any specific years?
Any other thoughts with this type of guitar?
Thanks a lot. :biggrin:
Hi all. Stupid question, I know...
Was there ever a change in the pickguard brackets for 1950's Les Pauls? I ask because I've seen pictures with the guard flush with the top of the body and some with a noticeable gap.
Are the ones with the gap the same bracket just bent up a bit?
Hi all. I was just reading on the Provide.net site that the neck joints on early SG's were quite weak and unstable? Any opinions? Is the info on Provide.net accurate regaring the desirability of these models? Thanks.
They recommend 1963 and 64 above all the others for some reason. The neck...
Hi all. Any suggestions where I might be able to find a late 1950's set of 340 or 440 Gibson Mona guitar strings in the cardboard pack?
Thanks for any leads...:salude
Hi guys. Just got an email from Kim. My R8 is ready for paint. I can't wait! Here's a couple of pics...
