• THIS IS THE 25th ANNIVERSARY YEAR FOR THE LES PAUL FORUM! PLEASE CELEBRATE WITH US AND SUPPORT US WITH A DONATION TO KEEP US GOING! We've made a large financial investment to convert the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and now have to move to a new host. We also 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!
  • WE HAVE MOVED THE LES PAUL FORUM TO A NEW HOSTING PROVIDER! Let us know how things are going! Many thanks, Mike Slubowski, Admin
  • We're having some "break in" period issues with our new email system provider - the Achilles Heel of our conversion to a new hosting site. Please give us some time to resolve this. Thanks and apologies.

Thanks man, I'm over the moon!!! Florian has done an incredible job, I'm very grateful for all his hard work.

Speaking of hard work, I have a little confession to make. I need to say a big thanks to my " Upload Slave " with out him and his little team working behind the scenes I wouldn't have been able to put up these great shots.

I only have a tablet here so I can't do all the re-sizing and compressing required to get the photographs posted.

So a big thanks to the photographer Bastian Morell, who very kindly squeezed this in to his busy schedule and then worked his magic and got it sent over to Florian.

Also a big thanks to Florians web designer who went round and helped with the re-sizing.

Thanks guys, the photographs look fantastic! ????

Incredible outcome thus far... can't wait until the return to Acton, safe, sound, and happy together.

Beautiful gold, aging, the right amount of barely perceptible green, nice dark board with cracking inlays.

The carve: looks like the Argo has done plenty of abdominals whilst on vacation in Deutschland; or undergone liposuction? :cool:

Congrats to all involved!

Congratulations on that magnificient guitar. I always knew it would turn out that glorious. Jaeger posesses those incredbile skills and the profound knowledge to pull off something like that. Again, thank you very much for sharing your story with us, it has been a pleasure.
