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!
My First Gibson Custom Shop as well....I bought a LP CUSTOM fretless wonder in 1971 for $592.00..which was quite a bit of dinero for those days..There was no LES Paul Craze back then as we see now..but it was a gorgeous black beauty....That Guitar was stolen and since I have only played Strats. In July I purchased a Wildwood 2019 R8 and i have not been able to put it down..it is simply fantastic...oozes quality. IMO the 2019 R8 is a better instrument than the 71 LP Custom.
