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!
CITES Jan 2017 regs & how does it effect moving new & used guitars around the world?
Does anyone here have a bit of layman's knowledge about the upcoming change in the CITES Regulations regarding buying and selling guitars (wood) from around the world?
Not sure if this is the right place for this thread (although there are plenty of Gibson's in the catalogue). Have any UK members bought from this auction site? This was last months lot. Some keen prices here.....
Have near mint '65 Deluxe Reverb. Use it a lot but looking to retire the speaker. Any recommendations for a good modern replacement.
I had a new baffle built for it a while back and tried different speakers. Mainly out of curiosity. Vox Alnico blue, G12M and G12H. Now I want to use the old...
This made me chuckle...
100% for positivity. I suppose the 'PAF' (raised eyebrows) might be the jewel in the crown.
Only in Australia.
My once basket case '60 dot neck 335 is off to the doc's to get this mess sorted out. This was the only thing that I didn't put right on the guitar when I bought it. It was playing good and sounded great so I left it alone. The flaking nitro has got really bad over the past 3-4 years. Never been...
Been eyeing a couple of these 2007 Gibson Custom Shop G0 1960 Reissue Les Paul's in darkburst. I believe they were a limited Guitar Centre run.
Any owners out there or have owned in the past? Are the necks the regular shallow profile for an R0? Any help would be appreciated.
Anyone have anything on these:
Looks interesting. Bill Lawrence in bridge, single coil neck.
Any owners or ex-owners got any info?
Seller is asking $3000
Rummaging around youtube as you do, I came across this live clip from 1976 of Scottish band 'Pilot'. I could be wrong but Ian Bairnson seems to be making all the right noises with a small logo Marshall through a period Orange cab. His lead break kicks in at about 1:10...
Popped into a well known music store in Australia today. I had to sit down when I read the price tags.
10,000+ Aussie dollars for a bog standard looking new R9 and over $11,000for a darkburst!
WTF! There is something definitely wrong there.
For the life of me I can't find that thread. Must have been 2 or 3 years ago now but one of our clever members put a Lolar narrow P90 in a early Melody Maker.
I have a shell and I want to do the same mod. As I recall there was no routing involved either so that's defo the way to go.
I'm sure many of you have come across this problem.
I have a Tele bridge pickup that's had it's wires chopped about 1 1/2" from the bobbin.
Is it best to replace both wires at the bobbin or strip back what's there and attach to the ends?
I should mention that the pickup is a 1960 so the new...
Looking for opinions/best practice.
I have a old 80's solid rosewood Schecter Strat neck that is still in the virgin wood. It came from the "Obe" collection. It's all strung up and feeling great to play. Superb bit of timber.
I'm not a sweaty kinda guy so the wood is still...
