• 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!

NAMM 2024 Gibson/Fender clips ?

As previously mentioned, I’ve noticed used guitars are coming down a bit too.. this maybe unfortunately due to people selling personal equipment due to the cost of living.. which then influences the online stores to reflect those prices.. eg.. I’ve noticed guitars that have been available for a few months.. now selling below asking price. That said.. getting a used USA range 335 under 2k is now impossible..
I’m glad I went wild on two 335s and new 345 when I did during lockdown and just after.

Gotta keep an eye on market 😉
All we need is a good old recession with a stock market crash to boot. Then who knows? I may buy a burst…

It’s all good. My uncles treasure trove is more valuable and has more memories than any of my own gear did.
Brilliant… glad to hear it..
it honestly breaks my heart when people have to sell their gear..

… and I’ll buy a poor man’s burst .. a true historic

Bonjour.
They’re not that expensive. I own one. I paid full MSRP on it but I bought a 2008 R9 in 2008 for $4 k and they bought it back from me for the same price so it only cost me $4500 extra for the TH 59. I’d never sell it. But I’m definitely not gonna sit here and say I own the best Les paul in history or that it’s better than any other? I played a 2013/2014 historic and the difference wasn’t much at all if I’ll be honest. In tone.

Since they have nothing but shame to show for their brands.

The glory days are over until they both clean house and get a bunch of new guys excited with a full on passion for rekindling the love of American electric guitars and the culture of electric guitar Rock N Roll. Summer 2019 was the last hurrah.
You grown at everything don’t you? Lighten up Francis

I’ve got my beady eye on one at the moment.. but I’m kinda reluctant to pull the trigger .. simply because I can’t justify it.. and as I’ve said before I’ve tamed the lust for the TH (and any guitar) right now..
