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!
and 5,000 posts - a suitable time to take a break from all the good folks at the LPF. I absolutely love this forum, but I decided to devote more time to guitar playing with the goal to learn a new thing every day. So it's back to lurking mode.
I've been a guitar nut since the late seventies...
The Quiet One's guitar collection - this is pretty cool:
The last piece of Apple gear I used was 20 years ago - maybe somebody can let me know if George's elusive 345 is on that app.....I always wondered what happened to that guitar. :peace2
Maybe a hoax - fire away guys:
Here's the real thing
With a pickguard in 1979 -looks like a brass nut:
1979, with Schallers
I need some advice guys. The nice TM conversion on Ebay got me thinking - many of us see a humbuckered fifties Les Paul as the ultimate guitar. For those who can’t or don’t want to pay the price of an original one, a conversion is an interesting alternative.
But what’s the best way to do this...
'Brust' is breast in German. A sunbreast guitar - I like how that sounds.
Steep price for a hacked guitar though - and that trc is the 1965 style....hm.
I'm looking at a really clean sixties SG Custom. What puzzles me is that the gold on the vibrola is super shiny without any pitting, not rubbed off or faded anywhere - it just looks totally new from all sides. The gold on the pickup covers is also still very much there BTW.
But the original...
I have a line on a late 70s Marshall 2150, also known as the "rock & roll baby". Small, 100W with one 12" Celestion Powercell speaker. Apparently the only Marshall ever with a factory installed PPIMV master volume.
Rave reviews on HC (9.9 average for sound from 19 posters) but those often...
A very vague polaroid picture from 1981. I was at the home of a collector in the Rotterdam area, where he took this photo.
He said the burst was a '58. I recall the very dark red shade around the pup selector and cutaway. Very mild flame, with a typical figure above the bridge pickup. Anybody...
Rather than replacing too messed up or overpainted basketweave grilles on old Marshall cabs with modern stuff, I wonder if anyone has experience with reversing the cloth.
Is it at all possible, is there a risk of breaking the cloth when reversing it, does it look 'correct', etc. Opinions are...
A guy offers me a used pair of EL34, black base, XF2 and BCsomething stamps. No brand visible anymore on the glass, there is single halo/getter in the pics (I cannot post these).
I assume these are 70s Mullards - they are matched, were used in a Siemens 50W hi-fi amp and test 95% (whatever...
It's at Dave's.
I can't believe how cool this looks, and the top repair seems a minor issue. I always wanted a double cut in the stable...plus it's a '59, TV, and a GREAT price. There must be something I am overlooking?
But unfortunately I have other priorities now - maybe you guys are...
Great shots of Keef & the rest with the keefburst, vox AC30s and a lot of other stuff in teh 2006 hardcover 370 page book "The Rolling Stones, 365 days" which can now be bought new for a measly 4 bucks from Amazon and other places.
They've got a Beatles book in this series which is also great...
