• 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!

Let's hear from you guys...
I wanted to come but at the last moment had to cancel the trip.
Next year I hope to be with you.

Check out how clean that 52 Unbound is. Bet those knobs never seen the light of day. Crystal clear.

My friend Hans-Werner Wirth has also made some great pics. Here are a few of them.

It was a pleasure hanging around at Tom's booth.
Well, Tom does not like Firebirds. Maybe he likes mine because it is strung lefthanded and unplayable for him anyway...

Hans-Werner liked the checking on the Firebird...

A great panoramic picture of the finest guitars at the show...

Well, it wasn't really my booth, but there were four great Les Pauls there. And that 52 has seen the light of day, plus gigs and recording also [I think]. It gets played ... just not as much as the 58. And I am extremely fortunate to get to play the 57 GT! I even got to use it when I was jamming with Gregor Hilden! :dude:

Fred, I loved the Firebird! I just could not handle the left hand stringing. :)
And, did you notice that you and I [plus Ludo] were featured in a photo for this year's show poster? :ganz

It was a fun show as always. This is the only show I go to besides the Dallas and Arlington shows, and I really have a ball with great friends, plus new friends!
Jörn does a fantastic job of making a great show!

:salude

what a vintage-LP-weekend!

played a 1952 Les Paul (unbound neck),
played a 1957 Goldtop LP with PAFs,
played a 1958 Burst,
played a 1959 Burst
on the Oldenburg Vintage Guitar Show on Saturday,

refined on Sunday moring my article on how to solve finally
the bias thermal drift problem in Marshall TSL122 (JCM 2000) amplifiers,

went on Sunday evening to a Jeff Beck concert in Hamburg,
saw Jeff play his ORIGINAL 1954 "oxblood" Les Paul.

Jeff played a medley of Les Paul tunes. He told the audience about Les and that he played his tunes on the more than 50 years old guitar that Les Paul invented. Great old wood, great sound, great artist, great gesture.

What a weekend!

Thanks to all of you guys Fred,Stephen and Tom for bringing the pics from the show.
So...what is the general impression? did many guitars exchange hands?
How is the German market doing about old American guitars? I understand that none of the Bursts were for sale, same with the 2 GT's?
Or maybe I am wrong???:applaude :applaude :applaude :peace2

More pics will be great.:bat
