• 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!

You all are much to kind and I sincerely appreciate everyone's kindness . I played the first one at the top of the page last night and the tone is out of this world . Talk about the Tele on Steroids and then some , same as my first M2M from Last Summer and Gibson Custom is knocking it out of the park with the most resonant Fiji grown Honduras Mahogany , along with the sustain is just unbelievable in the way the wood on the neck and body vibrates and sustains is just mind blowing to me . I will be playing the darker Lester this evening and expect nothing less . I really think this truly is the second Golden era for Gibson Custom right now during the Pandemic . Just mind blowing . Big major Thank You to AAO475Bassman for his most kind help and to Mr. Tommy Colletti @ The Music Zoo , whom without none of this would be possible !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was so taken back by everything involving the top I just noticed the very dark if not blackish fingerboard!

I have to also mention all my Les Paul's have ThroBak MXV-SLE-101 Plus pickups with A5 Magnets ( 10 sets ) ( wax potted ) running into my 2 Marshall 2555X half stacks .

Glorious. Love the pillbox hat on the switch.
Yes, I thought that was a nice touch for added protection during transit , and as you can see from the top photo the brown case has been improved as well which makes it that much more snug and tight and the headstock area as well . So kudos and compliments to Gibson Custom for the upgrade and improvement as well .

This color of rosewood has caused me to pass over many guitars the past 40+ years .
My very first sunburst was a 1994 Les Paul Classic Premium Plus and I special ordered it Halloween 1993 and got it at the beginning of August 1994 . I played the crap out of it and the board darkened greatly . So I always liked that color of the rosewood where I liked it Black ( insert joke ) , almost as dark as my Ebony board childhood Les Paul Custom ( which I still have all of my instruments as once they are in the herd they never leave ) So then in 2019 when I got my 2 Braz Board R9's same thing really dark boards , along with my wacky top 2019 R8 . So I always request dark rosewood boards and Gibson does have them .
