• 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!

Gil gave me most of these photo's over the years and believe me he still has a ton of fenders to post yet..The problem is getting Gilvis motivated enough to post them.Valid point and i will post more of my photo's but still use Gil's with his permission.
