• 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!

Seriously, I'd like to see Clapton do a solid gig of his blues and pop/rock songs with a Les Paul of any sort. I don't want a reliving of Beano, just love it when he makes a LP scream.

And even more seriouslyer, I'd like to go back in time a bit and put a psychedelically freaky Les Paul on Phylis Diller, a goldtop signature on Groucho (his eyebrows, glasses, and mustasche drawn on the headstock), and a 30lb Les Paul Custom with rusted electrronics on the person who invented popcorn ceilings.

Kim Jong Un is strictly a Flying-V man.

Herman Munster digs Les Paul Customs, though:

Listen. If Fred Gwynn as Herman had played just one note over and over on stage and I'd been there for it, I'd have never needed to see any other live act again.

Ha ha ha Lez Paul?

1. My Mom can't play a Les Paul because she passed away.
2. My ex-wife hates guitars, and my kids have no arms or hands and are too lazy to learn how to play guitars with their toes.
3. My LP and I are lefty, so play it if you want to look like a goober.
4. Boris Pauloff's Frankengibby does a mean version of "Edgar Winter"

Isn't there a picture of Fred Gwynne in costume as Herman playing a Les Paul? I know he played guitar a few times in the show, but it was acoustic.
Edit: there it is - the two-pickguard one - the 3-pu custom pic is photoshopped, I think.
