• 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'm No Charlie D, but I Tried.... My 1957 Goldtop.

Wonderful guitar and in great condition. I like these darkbacks. :dude:

How is the tone of this one?

Great tone. Lot's of clarity and sustain with these lower output paf's which I've learned to love. Can't get enough of that big clean tone through a Deluxe Reverb or Vibrolux with JBL's. It does the cranked Marshall thing pretty good too. :)

Looks great. We all have a lot to learn as far as photography compared to Charlie. Great looking guitar. Post a clip?

I have a few low quality iPhone vids, still deciding if I wanna post. I should use my better camera with the mic attenuator, which would definitely sound better.
