• 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!

Thanks Mike, R8 Bourbon burst Murphy ultra light aging, 9lbs I love the top it has some waves in it, not sure what you call it, I’m sure this has been discussed a ton but the checking/ aging on the top does not look authentic to me, seems more like check lines just left to right, on the back and sides it looks more realistic.

Beauty! The first shot could pass for an original `50's/`60 Les Paul. I know my ML R-9 is really the closest to an old one that I've played. I've played probably 25-30 originals and it's right there!
