• 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!

Yup! Tone chasers alike.......
Chasing that tone is something like you have already heard or have, but keeps getting away.....if you know what I mean?

Or is it purely the wood? the age? the pickups? the amp? the effects if any? or is it in your hands/fingers? or most of all your SOUL?

Maybe all of the above then.
Chasing tone I don't think will never stop period.

I was just playing licks and notes on my Les Paul tonight and just happen to plug into an Excelsior Amp (cheapy piece of C*%P) but works for me)
Setting was clean and bright but can be rolled off on Les, nonetheless I keep getting a nice BELL TONE like attack with a tad or so shimmer from an 2005/2007
Standard and a Custom, all same settings. Did I just came across a sweet pairing here as the Excelsior is a go to amp after work sit at home in the corner type of day.

Any players out there that can share the same experience and alike? Totally different from having a FENDER plugged in obviously.
