• 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!

    Slash Les Paul 1987 Aged

    From the pictures, the top looks nice, really good actually. The wear on the neck and the back looks pretty bad and unconvincing imo though... šŸ˜

    Anyone tried the new USA SG Specials?

    I mean the USA models, that now come in vintage cherry and black. Wouldn't have bought the previous ones in pelham blue or burgundy red, but with these classic colors... I'm really tempted - they look great and are very reasonably priced...

    NGD 52 / 57 Conversion

    From the pictures, that's an amazing refin job. Very few can do a proper goldtop refin, this is one of the best I have seen so far. The tuner tips are original as well? Congrats, looks like a phantastic guitar!

    Harrison/Clapton Lucy bites it...see if you wince too

    To those who have seen it - is it any good? Massive Beatles fan here, and I thought ā€˜They shall not grow oldā€™ was fantastic. Is it worth getting Disney+ just for that series?

    Nothing beats a great plain top!

    Congrats! Now we need PICTURES!

    Keith Richards finds "new" 1955 LP Jr. TV Model

    Saw that too. With the insane number of guitars he has, I'm surprised that (a) he doesn't already have at least 5 other '55 TV Jrs, and (b) that getting a new guitar is worth an IG post for him...

    Hey it's Mat from Gibson Product Development - AMA

    Hi Mat, What I think would be killer is an ES355 run in black with a P90 in the bridge and a staple in the neck position, like a '55 LP Custom. Also, more 3x5s with wraparound bridges and P90s. Cheers!

    Vintage Guitar Collection....1958 Flying V, Jim Peterik of Survivor, Ides of March....

    Julian Lage, certainly one of the best players alive today. Pretty sure this is his vintage Goldtop

    The Esquire files

    Just stumbled across this and had to post it. Now isn't that something? If you're a Fender guy, this has you pretty much covered :)

    Listing modern day guitar heroes

    I'm a jazz guy mostly, so I'd say Kurt Rosenwinkel and Julian Lage.

    Current bursts for sale...

    Might just be boomers retiring or dying, so they or their famlies sell off their collections
