• 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!

    Murphy Lab Nitro vs. Custom Shop Plasticized Nitro

    I just took delivery of a new 2021 R9 Murphy light aged and also have a 2019 R9 VOS. The Murphy has more sustain, complexity, acoustic volume, brightness, resonance (vibration), and woody sounding. Beats the VOS by about 10%

    Four Uncles ABR-1 bridge just in and...

    Guys, please check out this bridge. I own one and am really loving the improvement it brings to my 2019 R9. Top flight quality built product and an excellent focused tone. I love it. https://coopermusicalcomponents.com/

    How old is that Pigtail bridge? Did you happen to try the Rand K saddles in the Crazy Parts bridge?

    The ULTIMATE upgrade.

    Hi Tyler, I am interested in pots, caps, wiring harness and have not been able to reach you. Sent an email to your Hotmail but not sure if you received it.

    I too have a 2019, end of year run R9. I was told the caps are correct paper in oil but the wiring harness, wire type and pots are not right.

    Wilko, do you think the width of the saddle, with increased string surface area contact, influences sustain as well?

    Hahaha 🤣. Well, we got one part right.

    The ULTIMATE upgrade.

    All, I have a 2019 R9 Anniversary. I thought the pots, caps, harness and pickups we’re supposed to be “clones” of the originals? Or not?

    I think removing the Gibson name from under the bridge can possibly influence performance due to weight/mass removal and thus impact the dynamic response and harmonic spectrum of the fundamental. 🤣

    PRS Wood Library McCarty - Phenom!

    I love the DGT and that neck!!! I played a Brazilian wood necked one that knocked my socks off. Funny about the kiribati wood comment! I love what PRS is doing and it’s clear they are learning what works.
