    Re: Replica Les Pauls show em!!

    My LP Replica just arrived and, well.... I just came up for air.

    I haven't mentioned it, but I own an amp company (I'm actually designer, builder, marketing, etc. as it's a one man shop):

    Henning Amplification

    I decided to record a little classic rock thing with my new 50 watt design (not released yet!), the Henning Bottle Rocket and I thought you guys might like to hear the guitar in action. It's the smaller amp (in both black and white tolex) shown in the first picture below. It's capable of very heavy stuff, but this guitar is so perfect for the classic rock stuff that I was inspired to play a bit of that to see what I could get. I wasn't going for the album tone, just dialed in the amp and recorded. I love the way this guitar sounds! The Wizz pickups and original Centralab pots and black beauty caps I got from a '67 ES-335 give the guitar a very unique vintage sound.

    This is a pure classic rock machine! Exactly what I wanted, as I have plenty of guitars for heavier stuff... I'm gonna record a bunch of clips, but here is the first.

    Signal chain is : Guitar -> Bottle Rocket -> Royer R-121 -> Great Rivers Pre -> DAW. No EQ, no nothing... Not trying to match the original, just got a tone and played this...

    Buy guys - gotta get back to her!

    Alright Now

    This is my Triumph LP copy. I traded an acoustic for it 20 years ago. I have no idea what it is, as there is no info online about it. I have seen a Triumph Tele copy with the same logo. It came with Grover tuners. I have since replaced the pickups with Seymore Duncan '57 LP reissues, and have new pots, Russian PIO caps, and Switchcraft toggle on the way. It played great, and has the double bindings. It is a bolt on neck though. The bridge posts are much bigger than an LP. It is quite heavy. IF ANYONE HAS INFO ON IT, please let me know.

    Re: Replica Les Pauls show em!!

    There are quite some amazing guitars highlighted in this thread! I remember once writing a PM to one of our humble hosts, asking if opening a Les Paul copy/replica thread would be allowed, but never heard back from them. I guess things have changed

    I'm not a fan of replicas (= Les Paul with Gibson on the headstock), but have always been a sucker for Les Paul influenced guitars and - at this time - have sold all of my Gibson Les Pauls (still have one or two other Gibson vintage guitars, though) and am playing exclusively "inspired by" Lesters.

    Like this one - my absolute # 1 - made by German master luthier Thomas Kortmann


    I also started working on my own creations ... like this one ...


    Or this guy ...

    (this one is signed by Robben Ford and is going to be auctioned off in September with all proceeds going to the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle to support cancer research)

    Of course, none of those have Gibson on their headstock.

    That's a great start . . . but I believe Gibson has trademarked the body shape, not just the name and logo.

    I don't really care about the trademark(s). To me, it wouldn't feel right to label a non-Gibson guitar with "Gibson" ...

    Here's a cool vid I found surfing. I like it cleanish at about 3:20 onwards for a bit. Real fat cleans.

    Very cool. I had no idea until now that the LPF allowed this.
    Tom Holmes pickups, '64 ES wiring harness, the rest is typical of what the builder uses.
    Burst/finish wise, I asked for about as new looking as he could handle.

    I absolutely love my '59 Replica. It sounds magical as well. I tried to model it on Ace Frehley's '59 a couple of years before the recent release.

    I have an LP by the same builder. It's a Gator case. This was the upgraded case option for sending overseas when he was still building replicas.

    June 2015 is when the guitar was finished. I didn't know until now that we could talk about these things on the forum. One of these days soon I will get some sound files and video. Incredibly happy with the guitar it sounds and feels right at home in my hands.

    Here's a Korina/Eastern/Braz replica of a, uh, Studio from the Clinic.
    I put the clear parts on it.
    Does anyone make clear tuner buttons?
