• 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!

This is my recent acquisition (last Christmas).

I found this at a local guitar shop here, with a guy I usually trade gear. I traded my old 58 reissue (Jackie) for this one. The guitar is stunning! The tone and playability of the 2013 guitars are really outstanding. It was exposed on the guitar shop window for sometime and it already shows some fading under the pick guard!!!:bigal

I love the sound of my Class 5, although some may say it is a bit muddy!!!:dude:

Have you tried a germanium treble booster between the Les Paul and Class 5? That's how I liked mine best.

I've worked on a number of Class 5's making them cleaner and clearer sounding and more responsive.

SWEET! I have two red and one black Class 5's Combo's. I like 'em just fine. Might add a better speaker and simple upgrades to open the tone, but overall I like 'em a lot!
