• 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!


Current Gear
'03 Gibson CS-356, '95 Gibson J-100 Extra, '00 MIM Nashville Tele, '99 Taylor 812CE, Mid-1970s MIJ Epiphone Crestwood ET-276 (just like my first guitar, only better), Baby Taylor, and, ahem, a Charvel strat with a single EMG that a buddy gave me. Haven't touched that one in years. Honest.

JamZone rig:
Guitar => Damage Control Womanizer OR Trademark 10 amp (direct out) => Behringer UB802 mixer => Mbox => Mac Powerbook G4 running ProTools LE.

Acoustics are usually miked with an AT 2020 & AT 2021.

All hail the Option 5 Destination Phase! I also plug into an OCD, a TR-2, a BD-2 and a Crybaby Classic GCB-95F.
Previous Gear
I've only sold one guitar in my life, and regretted it for 25 years.
Musical Influences
Keef, Robert Johnson, Rev. Gary Davis, Mississippi John Hurt, Freddie King, Albert King, J.B. Lenoir, Jimmy Johnson and, umm, Stan Getz. And my JamZone brothers.
