• 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!

New Guitar Day!

Hello everyone,
Just joined the forum and although this isn't my first Les Paul, It's my first custom shop instrument and all I can say is wow what a difference. To be honest, I've struggled with bonding with Les Pauls for whatever reason. I've been playing a SG standard that is actually a very good one. I was convinced I needed a custom shop SG, but while looking around I discovered some pretty good deals on some slightly used historic Les Pauls and well, this is the one that called to me. I am thrilled to have this fine instrument!

If Grid's recommendation doesn't work for you, try using a hosting service like imgur. Then, just copy the picture url, click on the "Insert Image" icon just to the left of the smiley face on the icon bar above the text box, click "Insert" and then post the reply.


Good luck!

Thanks for the help!
Purchased this 2018 R9 at Jimmy's Vintage music in Auburndale, Fl. He has a great selection of fine instruments and is easy to deal with. So happy to finally own one of these!

Congrats on a beautiful R9! You found the right one. PS, Gridlock this is Justin that you met in Tampa. The guy plagiarizing SRV poorly through your amazing mint '64 Deluxe Reverb. Good to see you around these parts too!

Cool Justin, I am also glad that you are here. I’ve got the music gear, I just need your guitar skills.
You are an amazing guitarist. Hope that you are doing well.

Being the curious type, I had to know what this guitar weighed. She came in at 8.2 lbs.....
