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!
Since seeing the Woodstock movie in the early 70´s, I am a HUGE Alvin Lee fan. In 2006 I had a chance to buy
a 1958 Stratocaster that Alvin Lee had owned from 1972 - 1994. I managed to get some great authencification for that guitar.
Some months later the shop got a 1965 ES that should also have...
My fellow Scandinavians at Roukongas guitars have made this interesting comparison.
It is great to see the dedication and pride those guys have for their work with guitars.
I just got my 2004 Epi Elitist back from my luthier who gave it
a monster flame paintjob :biggrin: and installed 57 Classic p.u.s from a 1998 R8.
I thought it would be interesting to make a sound comparison.
Both guitars have fresh Daddario 009 - 42.
Both guitars have all controls set at 10...
Hi Guys !

Hi guys ! I need input from the experts around here :
I just sold my 1957 Jun. that I had bought from Rock´n´Roll vintage some years ago. Their description was " original P 90 pick up ".
Now the Ebayer who bought " as is with no returns " has sent me this message :
" P90 incl. cover is not from...
My favourite burst colour is lemon burst. So I could not resist when this chambered 2011 R8 came up at Marks. I have not tried it plugged in yet, but unplugged it rings like a pre - war Martin.

I like my vintage Les Pauls as much as the next guy, but I have to
confess that I have always had a weakness for sparkle guitars.

I recently bought a 1968 LP Custom. Only issues mentioned were luckingnut repair and missing pickguard. Otherwise 100 % original.
Yesterday I opened it up for the first time and was a bit worried to find stickerles pick - ups !
I contacted the seller ( big vintage store ) and the owner said that...
Fake Rossington : mystery solved
It turns out that I have made a mistake remembering the ser nr of my Rossington : It is 197 - not 097. The reason I just couldn´t check on my guitar, is that I´m abroad on vacation.
So an excuse to the Ebay seller for thinking his guitar was fake, and...
