    Gibson Custom

    We are pleased to welcome Gibson Custom as a Premier Sponsor of the Les Paul Forum!

    Gibson Custom works through its dealers and does not do direct sales, but they have been advocates of the Les Paul Forum and friends of the LP Forum Owners for many years. We welcome them as a Premier Sponsor and supporter of our mission to promote the Gibson Les Paul and other Gibson models.

    Please - this is NOT a section to post direct inquiries to Gibson Custom or to bash the company -- there are enough criticisms and compliments posted in other Pubs in the Les Paul Forum. This section is to simply acknowledge their support and the fine guitars they are building for Gibson enthusiasts.

    A big thank you to Gibson Custom for your support of this fine form and to Mike and crew on growing the forum and looking for new ways to provide an outstanding service to owners and admirers of the Les Paul guitar and other Gibson instruments.

    I'm fortunate enough to have 5 Gibson Custom guitars, 3 Les Pauls, 1 58 Flying V and a 57 Futura and love them.

    Thanks again, I look forward to the next phase of this forum and hopefully Gibson Custom can provide some insight into the development and production of their fine instruments.

    Best Wishes

    Martin

    You can post those in any Pub other than this one. Thanks.

    I've owned several Historics, 2-R7's, an R9, a Rossington and loved them all, but I thought it might be appropriate to send a shout-out to the good folks who built my Gibson USA Firebird. It's a great guitar, and am VERY happy with it.

    Welcome Kevin!

    I am the host of the 60's SG and Les Paul Sub-Forum here at the LPF, and I was very excited to see Edwin Wilson discuss the new Historic 1968 Les Paul Custom in an interview on YouTube. I believe it is already on sale in Japan and really hope it makes it to these shores as well.

    Welcome, Kevin and thanks to you and the team not only for producing great guitars but for becoming more active here.


    So, does this mean to override Slub's admonition?

    Perhaps we need a sub-forum or some protocol for this?


    Hey, another good idea might be to get a Point of Contact from Memphis and Bozeman on here (or perhaps elsewhere and let us know), perhaps in sub-forums. I am sure Mike and the other Admin stewards would welcome and provide it.

    Cheers, we are all rooting for you guys to keep producing the world's best guitars -- even us LEFTY players!

    Thanks! Yes, that's correct about the '68 LPC being available in Japan first, though the "re-introduction" is likely to have a few spec upgrades that tie into True Historic (our upcoming next gen of Historic Reissue). I'm waiting to find that out myself.

    I can't speak for how the forum is structured...I'm new and that's all Mike and I'm sure I'm not overriding anything-just keeping an eye on our section and keeping anyone interested informed, but I can definitely intro the admin to other contacts in the company on request.

    hahahah, haven't we all!

    Thanks for the update on that new 68 Historic, Kevin. I am also the author of this site: http://www.latesixtieslespauls.com/

    On it, I will be happy to write an article on the new model if/when it comes out. I already have a little blurb on the Japanese version.
