• 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 was roaming around YouTube a week or two ago and I saw someone that was playing a '54 or '55 and for the life of me, I can't remember who he/the band was? Had to be someone I liked from my era?

Went to the Orlando International Guitar & Music Expo this past weekend and there was a lovely '54 there:

I don't know how I missed this! Either it had already sold or it wasn't out while I was walking around! That is really clean -- looks like a new guitar. Any idea what they were asking for it?

The Neil Schonn on was a 61 SG/LP Custom. They wanted way too much, solely because it was associated w/ Neil Schonn. I saw one sell on reverb this week for under $17k.

When were you there? I was there on Sunday afternoon. It was at the end of the room to left as you walked-in. I'm not sure how much it was selling for? I was going to ask, but the vender was with someone else at the time.

Yeah, that '61, while beautiful and I would love to have one, was crazy money, exactly as you mentioned; because it was Neal Schon's.
