• 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!

MIA FOR A LONG WHILE. SOME OF MY LES PAULS THAT HAVEN'T BEEN SEEN IN A WHILE

Great revival thread!
Let's hope that it revives the spirits and health of Mr. Bowen!
Where's a link to his CDs where he plays some of these beauties?

Cheers shred (y)

I particularly like 8 5395. I think that there were some great looking '58 bursts between the serial #s 8 5386 to 5395.
My all time fave is 8 5388..........looks like a piece of old style top quality maple furniture.

Thanks guys, it’s an incredible collection of killer guitar pics… Also thanks for all the thoughts and prayers. It sucks for Mike not to be able to play anymore, so bumping this thread seemed to be a good way to remember his LPF contributions during his fight. As I say, he doesn’t post anymore but he’ll see your good wishes. Thanks again 🙏

Mike was king enough to send me a copy of his CD--some great tunes & what a great guitarist he is!

That’s really cool. No shortage of vintage guitars on that recording I imagine. 🤘

Does anyone here communicate with Mike Bowen? I’ve been a member here for a while and always enjoyed his posts but haven’t seen him on in a long time. Hopefully all is well.
