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!
Any recommendations on good jazz lessons on YouTube or elsewhere? I keep trying (and failing) to learn just some basics, and fun standards that maybe have applications to other styles. I'm thinking Allman-brothers style jazz/blues inflections, to being able to keep up with simple jazz songs. Any...
Speaker to relax the BARK?
Hello good folks,
I'm running a Heritage H-150 with Tom Holmes pickups (A4, std wind) into a Dr. Z Z-28 clone I built, into a Celestion Gold speaker, and I love everything about this setup but the very strong, harsh even, upper mid bark. Steely, like the other Z's I...
I'm thinking of picking up a 5E3 clone of some kind, what's good out there these days? Fender has one, I saw a Mojotone on Reverb that had a JCM800 channel that seemed interesting (but the interactive channels are separated, only one volume control), and there are the...
Has anyone played an Epiphone Bonamassa 1960 LP Standard?
Anybody know anything about this guitar, have one yet?
Eager to hear a report on weight, tone, finish, how it stacks up...
Does anyone know with any credible (preferably first-hand or second) knowledge what guitars and amps Teenie Hodges was using during the early '70s Al Green recordings?
Specifically his tone on "Love and Happiness" just gets me.
I can’t afford it, but this is a pretty hot looking ‘63 Jazzmaster for sale in Maine:
I know this guy and his shop and can vauch that he is meticulous about everything.
Hey y’all, just picked up an ebony ‘92 Studio, pretty cool guitar but way lighter than my Standard, were they doing weight relief back then or is it just lightweight wood? The pickups are pretty low / Med output 7.8 neck / 7.9 bridge, i’ll guess they are ‘57s unless somebody knows different. All...
Anybody want to weigh in on the possible outcome of swapping the A2/A5 magnets in a 409R/498T set with A4 mags, or maybe move the A5 from the bridge to the neck and try an A4 in the bridge? Thanks for your thoughts.
Just curious, does anyone know the story about how Gibson guitars got to be featured at the White House during Made In America week? Did the WH contact Gibson or vice versa?
Thanks, would love to know any facts and details!
Well I have to say, things worked out pretty good for me on this trade I made yesterday to pick up a Vox AC15 with two Greenbacks in it. I have always wondered what an AC15 would sound like with two speakers instead of one in the cab, and I am happy to say I got the results I expected. Two...
Check this out, peoples:
What do you think, is this an accurate representation of different pickup styles? I like the ability to click the buttons on the video and have them compare different tones on the fly.
A quick review of my new set of RS/Fralin New PAF pickups: https://store.rsguitarworks.net/collections/vendors?q=RS%20Guitarworks%2FLindy%20Fralin
Some of my general comments will make more sense if you read the "tasting notes" at the bottom, but here's the review:
Through a Fender...
I am looking for a no-drill replacement for the tuning keys on my '88 LPC. There is no screw holding the stock tuners to the headstock, so I would not want to have to drill any new holes for a stabilizing screw or to have to ream the peg hole out.
Thanks for your advice!
Recommendations on Replacement bridges? (and I thought pickups were confusing...)
Any recommendations on a ABR-1 style bridge (and tailpiece, why not...) for use on an '88 LPC? This has a Nashville bridge so it would have to be one of the units that will work OK on those studs.
Are there any devoted phaser users out there who could recommend a good one for use with humbucker guitars? I'm looking at PT-9 Ibanez but maybe there are others better? Preferably Boss / Ibanez size to fit in a BCB pedalboard.
I have a Fender mid boost circuit, like used in the Clapton and Buddy Guy models, and I'm thinking about trying it in a LP clone with some vintage output humbuckers. Has anyone tried this and want to encourage / discourage the idea? I'm planning to use it for slide, mostly.
I'm getting ready to wire up a harness using braided wire and want to find some of the clear or black plastic tubing I find in Gibsons that keep the shielding from shorting out components, does anyone know where I can find it?
