• 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!


Have been playing guitar in bands for forty odd years - some of them very odd. Owned an 80's Les Paul Standard but sold it about 10 years ago and wish I hadn't. After owning a Blade and then Mucicman I returned to a strat, having owned a couple in the 70's. However now I've seen sense and purchased a 2014 R9. Loving it....
