Need a L:es Paul Custom

I'm looking for a Les Paul Custom to play the crap out of, not to collect. I would prefer black, but if the price is right I really don't care. All that matters to me is that the neck is straight, there's no structural damage and the binding must be intact. Otherwise I don't care about condition of the harware, frets or electonics.

Thanks,

Kent

Dating my Les Paul Studio

trying to find the date of my axe s/n62396XX2 one of the "Gem" series

Re: Dating my Les Paul Studio

: trying to find the date of my axe s/n62396XX2 one of the "Gem" series

Whoever responded to rachel and said thats not right, you were right. They only made the " Gem" series for several years starting in 1996 and ending in 1998. Therefore it would seem the axe in question is a 96, just like it says in the serial number. Perhaps the 6 at the front denotes the month of manufacture? I'm sure some other Les Paul freak out there could answer that one.

Re: Dating my Les Paul Studio

: trying to find the date of my axe s/n62396XX2 one of the "Gem" series

On Les Paul's use the first and the fifth number of your serial number to determine year. Yours would be a 1966.

Re: Dating my Les Paul Studio

i don't think that's right

This numbered instrument 0000-3000 was manufactured in Kalamazoo. Allegedly hand made like the old pieces, these guitars were some of the last made there before the move to Nashville. Due to manufacturing problems, one supposes, none of these guitars were made in 1977, the actual 25th year anniversary, but came into production in 1978. The total number of these "special order only" guitars is, according to the factory numbers is somewhere in the neighborhood of 3000 instruments between 1978-80. The number fifty was added to the guitar to commemorate Mr. Paul's 50th anniversary in show biz along with the 25th anniversary of the guitar that bears his name. How that number was determined is one that will propogate discussion, I am sure. The instruments are magnificent, a custom "Custom", if you will. Most were the tobacco finish with some floating around in other colors. I have seen wine red, black, and even a white one and a natural one. The validity of the natural is questionable, but, after all, this was a custom order instrument not stocked in stores.The hardware is gold, with gold/silver Gibson tuners. Inlay on the headstock is an ornate floral 25/50 Les Paul, with the split block inlays on the 3 piece laminated and figured maple neck. Gold engraved bell truss rod cover, a brass nut, and a flawless ebony slab complete the the fat neck section. The body is straight LP Custom...2 piece maple top over mahogany. I have seen a wide range of flame in the tops of these guitars...from none to heavy. Mine is a medium flame, not too flashy and not too dull. A TP-6 tailpece completes the stringing construction. Electronically, there is a coil tap that controls what I have been told are possibly "Dirty Fingers" pups. Whatever they are, they are potent. The control cavity is interesting in that it is significantly larger than the standard control cavity. Upon opening it, one finds the controls and electronics shielded within a large metal device. The guitar is stout to say the least, and came with the original standard Les Paul case from Gibson.

Re: Gibson Les Paul 25/50

I would like to buy a 25/50. I sold mine 8 years ago. It was a mistake. Is there any reasonable offer?

HOW MUCH WOULD AN IBANEZ LES PAUL BE WORTH. NOT EXACTLY SURE OF THE YEAR, CANT BE OLDER THAN 1980. THANX

Re: $

Take it to a Pawn Shop that deals in musical instruments and ask them how much they will loan you against it. Take that number and multiply it times four...that's the real value of the guitar. Generally speaking, they will loan about one fourth of the value (don't bother asking what they think it's worth because you won't get a straight answer). Pawn Brokers really dictate instrument prices anyway.

55 Guitar

I was wondering how much a typical 55 Les paul would be worth. I don't know any specifics, as it is not my guitar. Thanks!

Re: 55 Guitar

Even in poor condition it would reach a few thousand easy. Just cause of its year make. Don't settle for a few hundred dollars. But make sure all the numbers are on it. Paper work and an original case also help.

'59 Les Paul Standard

I have a Standard which was damaged by fire and then restored. The serial number was lost in the restoration, but I am told that the guitar is a 1958, 59 or 60. Anybody interested?

Les Paul Studio

Just purchased a LP Studio, I love it, sometimes when I press too hard on the lower frets, it produces an undesirable tone. I have been playing acoustic for 22 years, and I'm used to pressing very hard. I guess I have to get used to being gentle. Has anyone experienced this? I paid $1100 for it in West Palm Beach Florida. Ruby Red.

2000 Gibson Les Paul Custom

I have an opportunity to purchase a 2000 Gibson LP Custom from a private seller. The private seller is asking for $1,950.00. He claims its in dead mint condition. I was assuming this guitar would cost a lot more. Is this an average asking price or is there something more I should know and be on the look out for?

57 Classic's in LP Standard???

Hi, I bought a Les Paul Standard new in 1991. By the serial number, i know it was made in 1990. I have a question that has been bugging me for the last 10 years. When I bought the guitar, the salesman told me it was equipped with '57 Classic pickup. I think that was the name, it was a reissue of the PAF, i believe. However, since then I've noticed that all LPS have the 490 series in them. I thought the salesman was lying then, and I still do, but i am very curious. Any help would be greatly appreciated. If someone could email me a response, it would be ideal, but i'll check back on the board as well. Thank you very much

Re: 57 Classic's in LP Standard???

Yeah the salesman was mistaken on the 57 pickup thing unless they were installed as an aftermarket. Usually the 57 pickups are installed in the custom shop on Les Paul Florentines, Les Paul Elegants, Les Paul Catalinas, Custom Shop Les Paul Classics but they are never installed in the regular Les Paul Standards off the line unless it is a custom shop Standard which will be rare but indeed possible. The 490 and 498 are the pickups the typical standard uses.

Les Paul Studio Double Cutaway

Sam Ash is seeing these things for $599. Looks and feels good to me, but I'm new to electrics .... friends say I should consider an American Strat for a little more money ..... Any suggestions?

Re: Les Paul Studio Double Cutaway

I bought a Les Paul Studio DC and sold my US Fender Strat. The Les Paul is fabulous and I find its tones far more usable than the Fender. You may feel differently so try both and see which one you like best, but for my money the Les Paul is much better - and that's a good price.

les paul special bass what knob does what?

hi bought a 90's les paul special bass what knobs do what? top volume? etc? thanks! bill

Re: les paul special bass what knob does what?

Have you plugged it in to an amp yet?
If your answer is NO...try that (and make sure to turn the amp on).
If the answer is YES...turn the amp on.
Next step...try the knobs.
If that still doesn't answer your question, go back to Drums:)

les paul classic vs. standard (2000 model year)

2 questions:

)Classic vs. standard- pros cons
)2000 model year- pros cons
I heard the current guitars are not as good as the older. Is this true?

Re: les paul classic vs. standard (2000 model year)

Hi , i have 2 standards and 3 customs and can tell ya, the standards are better than the classic (classics have thinner necks and yellow/creame inlays) the necks are a personal pref, but the inlays on the standard are much better

gibson les paul special

I recently purchased a Les Paul special. I would like to know its approximate value. I can't seem to find any information on this model in the blue book of electric guitars, so I'm hoping you can help. It has an all mahogany body and neck with a clear coat semi-gloss finish. It has a rosewood fingerboard with pearl dot inlays. It has two chrome covered humbuckers, two volume controls, two tone controls, three way toggle switch, black headstock with Gibson Les Paul Special written in gold. It has three plastic gray tuners on each side that say Gibson Deluxe on them. All the hardware is chrome. It says made in U.S.A. on the back of the headstock. It is in excellent condition. Any ideas on its value? The body is thick like the older models, not like the Smartwood models. Thank you for any assistance.

Re: gibson les paul special

I think it's probably worth around $250, I'll buy it of you if you want, if your interested mail me at the address above(GeneralPurposeGod@Hotmail.com).

LP Gothic Sound

I know the pickup setup is different on the Gothic. They are still 490s and 498s but there seem to be two sets.

Can someone describe the sound difference between the Gothic and a regular Studio. Does the Gothic still sound good clean?

Thanks

Re: LP Gothic Sound

I'll let you know. Im buying one this sat. 1-27-01

Looking Lyrics: " Counting colors in the rainbow"

Aloha,

I used to radio Australia when I was living in Indonesia in the 1950's. Radio Australia had a weekly hit parade.

One of the songs was a Les Paul and Mary Ford song :"Counting colors in the rainbow". I have been looking for the lyrics for
a long time, and haven't found them yet. I would be forever grateful if someone knows or has the lyrics, or where I could
possibly find them.

The refrain goes something like this: "Counting colors in the rainbow, When the sun has made a rainbow. In all those
colors , I see above me, I count the blessings of someone who loves me"
Thank you.
Carla Mauri.
