• 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!

I asked the question re the ES serial numbers and got an answer from Mat but in a lot of cases this is not correct and so still remains a mystery unfortunately.
Hi Werner, I saw your comments. I have not withdrawn from the public and in fact am more plugged in than ever...just not here.

Yes, Joe Ganzler and Tom Whittrock have relatively disappeared.

Catch me on Instagram to keep up with my shenanigans. Abalone Vintage & Eric Ernest

Here's a fun video from a few weeks back. LOL!

Stay safe out there!

All the Best, eric
I saw the Fool SGs you painted on the forum. Do you still paint them?
Hey man, do you know anyone who owns a 1997 Gibson custom shop Ace Frehley 300 series LP that they might sell?
Hi Rich. I have a friend who does not participate in forums like this…but does view them occasionally and has seen your V for sale and is interested. If you don’t mind messaging me offline so I can provide his contact info to you…or if you would prefer providing yours to me for him to reach out to you, that would be fine as well. my email address is: hurtwood58@gmail.com. My name is Josh. Thanks.
Hey buddy I have a 67 SG tooo....but the previous owner removed the original volume and tone knobs...the neck is kinda buzzy....frets are worn...but it does sound and play good...wish I had the money to buy it when it was new...any buzzes on the frets and neck of your SG?
Hi Werner, cool Special man! It would be a useful guitar for me as a TV Yellow sample to try and match, and I could eventually try and refinish the exposed neck area too perhaps..
If you do decide it’s superfluous, I’d be into buying it, so please keep me in mind.
Many thanks, Yuuki.

I think that i would be interested if you are thinking about a selling. PM me if so.

Love Seventies and Eighties Pop, Pop Rock, New Wave and AOR. I only discuss music I own.
Hi I’ve got a les Paul but I’m getting conflicting dates of when it was made. Can someone help. It’s 00352578
That guitar could have been built in 1976. the ‘00’ in front of six digits is indicative of this. Or...was it built in 2002??? the system that was introduced in 1977 used the first and fifth digit as the year, the second third and fourth digits were the day of the year and the last three digits would be the batch number. If it s this numbering sysytem, your guitar was stamped on the 35th day of 2002.
Well took the leap today... had an Ibanez SB1200 double neck that was stolen by a repair shop whose owner had a drug problem back around 1999-2000. Missed that guitar, so I finally coughed up the bucks and ordered a EDS 1275 from the custom shop. I think that will make up for the 21 year absence in my arsenal.
Hey just wondering if you still have the gepetto humbuckers for sale??
No sir, gone a long time ago. I guess I forgot to delete. Sorry.
Hi everyone, I have a 1970 Les Paul custom. which I'd like to sell, but the pickups have been replaced with shecters , how much is it worth without those original pups , cheers and great forum by the way
