• 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!

    Did Gibson logo vary on 50’s juniors??

    Yes they varied as they aged … The mop logos all varied as well.

    Historic Makeovers: R7 -> R9

    Not all eastern maple has mineral streaks. Plenty of burst didn’t have them. Big leaf (western) is a straighter looking grain than yours. To me. But I may be wrong. It’s a beautiful top regardless

    Tom Doyle “time machine” guitars ???

    Anyone heard about this. ??? Seen a video that showed a pretty awesome sounding guitar ? Said to qualify they had to be an historic 2014 or later??

    Why do some people hate vintage guitars?

    A good guitar is a good guitar. What year it was made has no bearing. Although some eras on a whole sound better than others ,.. you can get a good one from almost any of them though.

    The ULTIMATE upgrade.

    I really hate to see this. I vouched for Tyler and I also have been pretty much cut off with him. He stopped communicating about 2 months ago. And that’s BULLSHIT. No matter what you have going on in your life a simple text or call is never to much to ask. I am truly sorry if my post cost...

    The unthinkable happened

    Your wrong about that. It will “play” exactly the same as before. Once glued back if you blindfolded you think you could pick which guitar had a repaired headstock?? No you could not.
