• 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 really enjoyed that! I've been very nostalgic lately anyway, so it was nice to be able to take this little trip back to a much simpler time. Can only imagine what a hub of activity that old building on Parsons street must have been in it's day.

Makes me wish even more that I never parted with the one Kalamzoo made instrument that I owned. A 1969 EB3 bass.
