• 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!

    Coveting another man's baby.. (R8 Content)

    Fellow LP forum member "tvshooter" (Aaron) and I live nearby each other in southeastern Virginia. He noticed that I lived here from the "Sweet Cherry" threads, and also noticed that we're both in the television industry. He stopped by a few weeks ago to check my Sweet Cherry plaintop out, and...

    Greg Koch - Spankin'

    This guy blows me away. He knows his way around the fretboard for sure. He mixes in a bit of Ted Nugent and plenty of Led Zep into this must-see clip. It's worth watching the whole thing.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jQQIT4SJHpY :salude

    '58 Reissue Plaintop with Sweet Cherry Refin

    I posted these photos over in the RS Guitarworks dealers section, but I thought I'd post them here too thinking many guys don't look over there. A few months ago there was a thread here where we ramped up the idea of having a special run of historics done by the Custom Shop in a "Sweet Cherry"...

    Going Under the Knife

    Hey Guys, I kind of wanted to post this partially because, even though this is an Internet forum, you guys are friends. Also, I wanted to post this in case I don't post again after Friday, you'll have an idea why. I'm having surgery on Friday. Back fusion surgery. This is my fourth surgery...

    Gotta start the kids young

    I wanted my younger son to be a drummer, since my older son is a guitar player like his Dad. We need a drummer around the house! But I guess guitar runs in the family. He wants to be a guitar player, and he's a Gibson fan! Imagine that. Amazingly enough he's a Jimmy Page fan as well...

    Les Paul Setup in Western Mass?

    A good friend of mine has a LP Studio that he bought online. He's had it for several months, and likes it a lot, but says that he doesn't think it's setup very well. This is his first LP, he has several Strats and a rack of Ibanez guitars. He's in Western Mass, and I'm in Virginia, so I can't...

    "Day of the Week" Purchasing

    We were having a nice conversation about what day of the week is best for purchasing historic reissue guitars, and some :troll hijacked the thread refusing to stay on topic. So, the :troll can keep himself busy over there while we continue our pleasant conversation. Now, there was some debate...

    Victoria's Secret

    Victoria's Secret just sent me an ad for this new Teddy outfit they suggest I buy for my lovely wife. It's a cute picture, so I thought I would share:

    Life is Fragile

    I wasn't going to speak up about this, but given brother Moonpie's post about the loss of his friend, I have decided to open up. I've had a couple of back surgeries over the past 2 years. My latest surgery was December 1st. The other surgeries went smoothly. This one did not. Everything...

    Explorer Pro Love?

    I've been GASing for an Explorer Pro for a while. Been watching eBay, and there have been a few, but have been outbid each time, thinking I was going to get a deal. One showed up at my local GC (yeah, I know). I played it, and it felt great, was very resonant and sounded great through a Mesa I...

    Wolfetone Marshallheads!!!

    After fighting with my 2003 R9 for a few months trying to unleash the tone I knew was in there, I swapped out my Burstbuckers for a pair of Wolfetone Marshallheads. Holy Jesus! These things seriously transformed this guitar! When I read some of these posts and hear about how a guitar sounded...

    My First Burst Sighting - circa 1967

    This is just a dopey story about my first encounter with a real Burst. I've just never shared it on the LPF before, so I thought I'd do that. I grew up in western Massachusetts, in a little town near Springfield, in a middle class community. One of my neighbors was a family who had a son...
