    Ads older than 90 days will be deleted periodically. If an item is sold, the seller is asked to please delete the ad immediately.

    If you buy in bulk/build/make/replicate/service or produce any music related items with the intent to sell, then it does NOT belong in this section, and will be considered a business for the purposes of the Les Paul Forum, and posting of ads by businesses is prohibited.

    NOTE: Replying in this section prohibited.

    2. PLEASE TURN ON OR INCLUDE YOUR EMAIL IN YOUR POST. Please be sure that your email is available. Go to your user options and set it up. Or post it in your ad so that other members can contact you. IF YOU DO NOT POST AN EMAIL, MEMBERS CANNOT CONTACT YOU.

    3. PLEASE DELETE YOUR OWN ADS WHEN AN ITEM IS SOLD.
    Although ads older than 90 days will be deleted periodically, please delete your ads when an item has been sold.

    You may edit your ads at any time.

  • 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!

*** MY EMAIL HAD BEEN DOWN SINCE LAST NIGHT AND IS NOW WORKING AGAIN, IF YOU SENT ME AN EMAIL, PLEASE RESEND TO: eda@optonline.net ***

I have had this stuff for MANY years sitting in a box, time for them to go.... VERY IMPORTANT: some of the pots have issues, you may be able to repair them or maybe not, I am not taking the time to do so, so they are being sold as is and at prices that reflect the problems..... I can not guarantee that they will all work fine when installed..... Descriptions are followed by photos.... CONTINENTAL USA ONLY.... thanks!

BUMBLE BEES.... Vintage correct for a burst, .022/400V matched pair of Sprague Bumblebee caps.... actual excellent readings are .026... sound great... $200 for the pair

DATE MATCHED QUAD SET of 1953 (5th week) IRC 500K pots... I removed these years ago from my '53 Goldtop because it was converted to '57 specs, they were the factory original pots.... I tested them outside of the guitar with alligator clip leads... three of them seem to work great, one of them (vol. pot), is not working well and doesnt turn off. Three of them read in the 500k to 600k range, the faulty one reads over 900k.... $400 for the quad

DATE MATCHED PAIR of 1957 (38th week) Centralab 500K C2 pots correct for a vintage Les Paul, etc.... both volume pots.... one reads 650K, the other I cant get a normal reading... both have issues.... I am including parts from a '56 Centralab that was taken apart... whether these parts will help fix the problems with the '57s I couldnt tell you.... $200 for the pair

SINGLE 1953 (22nd week) Centralab 500k C2 pot correct for a vintage Les Paul, etc.... reads 545... has some drop out/noise issues when tested..... $75

DATE MATCHED PAIR of 1967 CTS 500k pots and harness from hollow body Gibson (I assume).... they include the original black reflector knobs.... dont know the history of these but they seem to work fine when tested... $175
