• 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 cool reference material - vintage Gibson electronics, Kluson and Grover tuners!

This is a cable from a 1974 Les Paul, Sunburst with Original Humbucker. It also has a 2 strand weave. So this was used at least until then. Great documentation, Thanks for sharing!

Here's a couple of shots of the inside of a guitar I got recently - are these caps typical of mid 50s?
