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 to look it up, but I think that Fleetwood Mac had an endorsement deal with Orange Matamp in 1968 and used them on the US tour the same year. Green used the Matamp Series 2000 with a Matamp Reverb Tank through matching 4x12 cabs loaded with Fanes. They again brought the Orange backline to...
Thanks for sharing your story, 'seafood'!

This guy is using the same amp and gets pretty close to that tone:
But the playing (not to mention singing too!)... in those 1970 concerts Peter was really out of this world. My...
Thanks for sharing. I've heard quite a bit of Cuby but not in this sound quality. I bet there is still lots of great stuff out there!

By the way, in case you want to lower the overall volume a bit more. Try...
Late reply here. Did you get it sorted, Ray?
I´ve heard that these early reissues run on slightly higher voltages than the old ones due to the solid state rectifier. Swapping it for a tube rectifier might drop the voltages and help to soften the tone, making it seem less in your face etc. You...
I recently got this SG Standard from a friend. The frets were nearly non-existent so I had it fitted with new Jescar 47104's. At one point it had the obvious neck crack. The guitar is completely original apart from the frets. Have to say it plays and sounds real nice now.
Any idea from...
