• 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!

Very apropriate. The french first lady is a musician and has made some records. Can't remember her name.

That's pretty funny. Guess you just never know who's going to be a musician.

Wow!

I bet Gordon Brown was pissed! All he got was a lousy pile of DVD's! Not even Blu-rays!

Very Cool.

Maybe it'll be in her husband's "Prez" Library someday.

A cool curiosity for the museum goers.

Different than the usual gaudy gifts of the elite.

Why not a 'Dove'?

I'm not familiar with Gibby acoustics...is the Hummingbird nicer?

Very big guitar for a fairly small woman. I would have thought something a little easier to get around would have been better like the very cool L-00 Legend or Blues King if they wanted something a little less "chere" as the French say.

I don't think Carla Bruni is that short, as a former model she's probably at least 175 centimeters tall.

And let's not forget she may be in a relationship with the french prime minister, but she's italian afterall :)
