• 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!

    Guitar Center

    So I'm at work today and my wife calls me and says she’s across the street from Guitar Center. I say which one. She’s up by north point mall with our daughter and granddaughters at the American Girl doll thing (glad I was at work). She asks if I need anything, so I tell her (by text of course)...

    NAD-Splawn Quick Rod

    After months of searching and driving music store employees nuts I found a Splawn Quick Rod locally. All I can say is holy filter caps Batman. This thing is definitely what I've been looking for. (That's my son's Fender Pro Sonic it's sitting on)

    Egnater Tweaker

    Went to Guitar Center in Fayetteville with my son, he's lookin for another small amp. We tried the Jet City 20 watter through the 1-12 cab, nice, noisey and the presence control squealed when it was full up. We a-b'd it with the Tweaker, huge difference. We're not fans of amps with lost of...

    Got to check out Tommy Thayer's axes, this is his main LP he plays with KISS, it has a CSXXXXXX serial number. You can see that he plays it a lot, their guitar techs are really great guys.
