• 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!

Some other nice guitars including a well-used ES-345 and player-grade ebony block SG.


Stick around for the studio tour at the end. Nice digs!
Neve showed the desk he’s using in the studio??

Literally the most important aspect of a studio tour?

Well, It wasn't a full studio tour but a buying safari with a quick overview tagged onto the end. Maybe adjust expectations...

API 1608-II

I'm using an API 1608 with the expander on it, which gives me 32 channels. And I have eight extra channels of the BAE 1073s for the Neve sound. I love all the Capi BT50 EQs. Capi makes amazing stuff, and I have that in most channels with the exception of a few API 560s for microscopic EQs. I've got a bunch of great outboard compression as well. I've got, a low serial number LA-2A. I've got two 1176 Blue Stripes and all that stuff.
I do have an analog console but I run that through the UAD Apollo and I use those as my converters. I do a lot of work in the box as well because that's how I cut my teeth. I learned how to do everything in the box first and then I slowly integrated analog as I went along.

My favorite part of the video was when, at the last minute, he wisely and correctly decided to keep his 1959 ES345!

I keep tellin’ y’all, the ES345 is the snizzle bizz!

Indeed... he plugged it in, and you could tell from the onset, YES keep it!
