• 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!

    B.B. King's Live at the Regal ES-335

    In the liner notes booklet to the remastered Live At The Regal are pics of BB playing what appears to be a late 50's ES-335 Sunburst Dotmarker with long pickguard, Grovers, Crown Headstock Inlay and a Bigsby. However, the guitar has a Varitone selector switch. Was this a custom order or did...

    Real 1960 Burst

    This is being sold by a guy I know in the Philly suburbs. He has owned small music stores for quite some time. I love the deep red traditional 60 color. Guitar has some issues like the repaired headstock and resprayed neck and missing binding but seems like a fair price. Anyone know this...

    Bad Co. Mick Ralphs Vintage Tobacco Burst

    There are a lot of youtube clips of the classic lineup. The tones on the solo on this one are awesome. Must be early seventies since MIck still has the Ampeg V-4's left over from Mott. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BfHDJYvZPwg

    New GC Reissue??

    I just received a sale flyer from GC. The cover has a faded tobacco plain top reissue that I thought was an R8. However it has double ring Kluson tuners. Is this the new G0?

    Remember The Cherry Refinished R0 That Resembled a ES-335

    Can someone help me find the thread about this guitar that was refinished by RS I believe. It also had added appointments like black hardware and black reflector knobs. Kind of a hybrid Les Paul Sweet Cherry and 60's 335 cosmetically. Thanks.

    Skynyrd Tone PAF Clones

    Ok, here we go again. Saw Skynyrd last weekend in Atlantic City-great show as I was 5 feet in front of Rossington the entire show. I need some recommendations for PAF clones-ie. manufacturer, specs, etc to get those classic tones for my Murphy R9's and Historic Makeover R9 due late in the...

    Took The Plunge-Historic Makeovers

    I purchased a very decent 2007 R8 VOS yesterday from a forum brother and it will be on the way to Dave Johnson. After talking to Kim the other day-he can talk and play!- I decided to do a non-flamed replica of the dark cherryburst '58 seen at page 28 of the American version of Beauty of the...

    Another Gary Richrath Question

    Does anyone remember the double cutaway cherry sunburst guitar that Gary sometimes used on the Hi Infidelity tour. It was Les Paul inspired and unlike the Les Paul Double Cutaway of a few years ago which resembles a Les Paul Jr. body shape, this one had dual cutaways that were like the cutaway...

    Voodoo '57's

    Who is still using these. A few years ago a member posted about the thick, juicy midrange tones he could coax from these and said they are very Stones like-presumably Mick Taylor tones. I am seriously considering a set to complement my 3 sets of Dr. Vintages which are amazing.

    BOTB Historic Refin

    I want to get another R8 with some light figure-got my eyes open for a few now. I want to get it refinned to match one of the Honeyburst-Lemon Drops shown in the Beauty of the Burst. Who do you all recommend? I am aware of RS and just found the Dave Johnson site-his work looks great. Your...

    Mike Turk Pickups

    Has anybody played any of Mike's PAF pickups. He has a set called Killer '59's. I believe he is in Canada and gets a shout out on his webstie from Steve Segal-the Burst collector and former April Wine guitarist.
