    Secrets of a Vintage 1959 Gibson Les Paul

    I know Bharat and have spoken with him...that was many years ago. Whatever wood it is, my '52 conversion is a keeper.

    Secrets of a Vintage 1959 Gibson Les Paul

    I have not thought about it much since my last post to this thread. I have come to the conclusion my '52 is most likely a nice and light weight piece of exceptional mahogany. The mountain Spanish cedar is something I have never heard before but I guess that possibility can exist. When Scott...

    The Murphy shop vs standard VOS 1959 es 355

    I am no expert but I will chime in. I was under the impression Murphy mainly paints/ages the guitar. Does he do set up work..maybe. Otherwise, it may still be a factory set up with his paint/aging. I know some will pay a premium for his touches. Does it make a guitar that much more...

    Speakers. How Many? Your Inventory Count.

    I have three. My JTM45 2x12 has a pair of mid-1965 Celestion pulsonics with the code 102 003. These are the rare gold and crimson foil label speakers. Pre-date Greenbacks by at least one year. These speakers were made between 1964 and very early 1966. I think the earliest were stamped T1134...

    Secrets of a Vintage 1959 Gibson Les Paul

    Thanks for the detailed pic. If this is true, my 1952 conversion could very well be this wood. With a strong magnifying glass I can see these wood characteristics. Not 100% sure but I am leaning to this could be true for my guitar. I have another conversion from the late 50's and the end...

    Susan Tedeschi's Les Paul

    Regardless of age, fantastic vocal delivery on any song. She has a great band behind her.

    Here is my 2014 R8 IN Action on Sunday.....Boy that felt good ....

    NICE! One of my favorite Top tunes. Personally, I stopped purchasing Top after Deguello. I also really enjoy playin Sure Got Cold After the Rain Fell. Good blues with attitude always wins for me.

    Secrets of a Vintage 1959 Gibson Les Paul

    BDW60...I have played numerous 50's bursts, goldtops, 335's etc. The cold hard truth is...I still sound like me. These vintage guitars are certainly special but not as special as the players who made them famous. Dickie Betts said he never wanted to sound like another guitar player...he...

    Secrets of a Vintage 1959 Gibson Les Paul

    I do agree with Korus. I do believe every guitar regardless of price or electronics has a sweet spot. The owner may like that guitar tone, might not. Upgrade at will. There is far more to guitar tone than just the wood and electronics. The amp, speakers, etc play a big part in the total...

    Secrets of a Vintage 1959 Gibson Les Paul

    Interesting tidbit about the earliest Les Paul's and Spanish mountain cedar. Any truth to that? I know my '52 conversion sounds like no other Les Paul I have played. Very light and loud when played unplugged. Plugged in it is a very clear sounding guitar. First time I have heard of this...

    String Brands....

    I had run the gamut of guitar strings and gauges. Was using DR Pure Blues for a few years till the ball ends started popping off. Took a couple guitars to Scott at Top Shelf in Buffalo. He asked if I like the DR strings. He suggested D'Addario. Now, to me, those colored ball ends just did...
