• 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!

Gil Yaron Les Paul WOW!!!

Had the opportunity last night to play one of these and I could not believe my ears! Absolutely the best Les Paul experience of my life. Honestly, it's my new gauge on what a Les Paul should be. With that said, please know that I've never spent enough time with a real burst to know the difference.

This guitar was effortless to play. The tone inspired some riffs I didn't know I had in me. It had that 3D sound going on. What a treat...

I was seriously considering ordering a LP from Gil when I heard he received the cease and desist order from Gibson and no longer makes them. I currently have a Bartlett Retrospec on order instead. I decided on the Retrospec instead of a LP replica because I wanted something a little bit different.

Glad you enjoyed the experience.

I brokered a deal and traded off several guitars to make this Gil Yaron acquisition. I'm calling it the best electric guitar I've ever played. Among them are a several 57 Goldtop's and a late model year 55 GT with original TOM.

Hope that the red is not true in the photo. It sure doesn't look like what you would expect of a vintage faded cherry sunburst Les Paul.

The color is way off in that pic, in person it looks alot more like pearly gates
from the picks of pearly gates that I have seen.

The top is very 3d also in person, its stunning!

now how did you guess that?

I guess you did the math!!!!

you are a smart dude!

yea. duane went. its ok-- I enjoyed my time with him!

Thats why we buy these play these then trade , I really think the Yaron is something we all dream of and as you full well know you can find another Allman . How do you gage a brand if you never step up & try something else . Cant wait to hear you response to this ultra cool guitar !

I know keep saying this , Rooster fish will post this weekend keep your eyes open !
