• 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!

    I Named My Les Pauls Today

    I decided to name my Les Pauls today. Not sure why but, if forced to guess, I got tired of referring to them as "The Goldtop and The Standard" and I've really bonded with these to instruments after being Fender-thusiast for decades. So let it be decreed that, from this day forward, my 2011...

    25 Years of Service Award

    Wow. Those are two mighty perty guitars. Sounds like it's time to come out retirement, re-retire and get an SG this time. ;)

    3 pickup 70s LPCs

    Good question. When I had mine custom shop version the wiring was quickly changed to include a blend function for the middle pickup.

    Les Paul Recording

    Grog has it right. The date code on the pots will tell the story. BTW, the guitar dater project had this to say. "Your guitar was made at the Kalamazoo Or Nashville Plant, USA in 1970, 1971 Or 1972 Production Number: 105001"

    Felt Pen Marks on Pickup (Bar) Magnets

    That kinda makes sense if not for the fact that the pen marks are on the long side of the pickup on the short side (poles). Sorry for the lack of clarity on my original post. This is an alnico 3 magnet from a 80's T-Top. https://photos.app.goo.gl/hjB9ZGiT1kSqoyRJ7

    Noob question - electronics/sound problem

    HI Woodfin, sorry for your loss man. As for your guitar, if you have an ohm meter (or could borrow one, you should check the resistance of the controls. It bog simple and they should. If they read 300k you could consider changing them for 500k pots. Or, you could just turn down the bass on your...

    Felt Pen Marks on Pickup (Bar) Magnets

    Confirmed sighting. I was looking at a P-100 and a T-Top and they both had bar magnets with 3 pen marks on it. I strongly suspect this is an alnico 3. I put one in a Burstbucker pro and it smooth out that nasty ass puppy quite well. Case closed.
