??Should I fear a tremble - never! never!
??Some one will take care of us for ever
?? Prince?? a lovely miracle on high!
?? Counting colours in a rainbow
?? When the sun has made the heaven go
?? The thrill it gives me, to know that with me,
?? There are millions who can share the rainbow

Aloha,
I lived in Indonesia in the 1950's and used to listen to
Radio Australia's hit parade. One of the songs that made it
it to the hit parade was a song by Les Paul and Mary Ford:
"Counting colors in a rainbow". I have been looking for the
lyrics to that song, and have not been able to find them.

The refrain goes something like this:
"Counting colors in a rainbow, when the sun has made a rainbow,
In the colors that I see above me, I count the blessings of
someone who loves me. "
If anyone knows where I could possibly find the lyrics I will
be very grateful.

Thank you.

Epiphone Les Paul Custom

I purchased a used epi Les Paul Custom in the mid 70's and still own it. I was wondering if anybody knew what it might be worth? It is in excellent condition. Thanks in Advance

Re: Epiphone Les Paul Custom

I wasn't aware epi made les paul models in the 1970's. I'm guessing, however good the condition, it won't be worth as much (dollar-wise) as a gibson les paul from the same era. (sentimental value, that's another story...) However, if a long distance call is ok with you, call Bill's Music in Peabody, Massachusetts at 1-978-977-9141 and ask Bill that question. He's a great friend, one of the best and most knowledgeable authorities and dealers of les pauls here in the Northeast. mike loce.

Hello Helen,
I have a Les Paul 1976 standard. This guitar has grover tuning maching heads and the neck was recently re-furbished. It also has Gibson standard pickups. The electronic, neck, bridge, machine head, pickups, stock, neck to body connection and flip switchs are in perfect working condition. It sounds very rich. The only marks on this baby is the pick guard is missing and there is a belt buckle mark on the back. The finish is Brown Burst. It is original. I was offered $600 dollar from a Gibson dealer last year. Since then his business has moved to California. I am willing to part with this baby for $450. If you are interested you can e-mail me at dinosaurs@earthlink.net or anthony.bellamente@cendant.com. Look foward to hearing from you. I would also like to know that you are going to give this guitar a good home. It has over 1200 stage appearences over the last 25 years. And has been very reliable. The reason I am getting rid of this is because I have stopped playing and have limited space.

Need help for a gift for boyfriend

My boyfriend has several times while out listening to bands remarked he would really like a Les Paul guitar. I would like to get him one, but help, he didn't say which one he specifically likes. He is what I would call a basement hobby player. Isn't in a band, but likes "good quality". Which one would suit him and should I buy new?

Re: Need help for a gift for boyfriend

Well unless you want to spend about $2000 or more on a Gibson Les Paul, i wouldn't recommend getting a Gibson. A lot of guitar players love the Epiphone Les Paul Standard, many believe it has the same tone and feel as the well known gibson. Epiphones can start at around $400 or less and get up near a thousand. i am currently looking at a epiphone les paul standard myself...so i would recommend that as your most affordable choice. But if you are willing to pay something in the 4 digit range, get a Gibson Les Paul Standard or something like that.

LES PAUL GEM? WHAT HAPPENED?

I was intrigued about the Les Paul Gem. Don't they make it anymore? From my limited understanding, it was a Studio with P-90's and custom colors, right? I was talking to someone who was looking for a "Pro Deluxe", and it struck me that the Gem was practically the same guitar. But the thing is, I don't know when Gibson stopped producing them (they're not in the 2000 catalog), and they are, no joke, impossible to find where I am,(Boston). Any additional info on this guitar would be appreciated.

Re: LES PAUL GEM? WHAT HAPPENED?

: I was intrigued about the Les Paul Gem. Don't they make it anymore? From my limited understanding, it was a Studio with P-90's and custom colors, right?

-----------

These were a limited edition model that was discontinued in 1997 or '98. I bought and still own my 1996 Gem "Topaz" model. I used to see the occasional Emerald, Sapphire, or Ruby Gem model for a little while there, but they're now all gone for sure. My Topaz model is the only Topaz I've ever seen.

These have the heavy weight attack of a Les Paul with that classic P-90 mid-range grind when you crank one up. The older Les Paul Pro Deluxe (from the late 70s) was essentially the same as the Gem, but with binding and without the fancy translucent paint job.

ALL of the Les Paul Pro Deluxe models actually had a former life as a Les Paul Deluxe, a Les Paul model that had mini-humbucker pickups similar to those used with the Firebird. The LP Deluxe didn't sell well, so, in the late 1970s, Gibson took the remaining unsold LP Deluxe stock, routed out the pickup cavities a little bit and installed a pair of P-90 pickups, then re-labled them as Pro Deluxe.

Re: LES PAUL GEM? WHAT HAPPENED?

look for them on eBay

pickup wiring on my bass...

I'm trying to by-pass the electronics on my bass. Do you have any suggestions for where the wires go? There is a master volume pot, and a pickup blend pot (two soapbar pickups).
In all there are two wires coming out of each pickup (one black, one white), three places to put wires on the volume pot, six places to put wires on the blend pot, and two wires (aside form the ground) from the
jack input. I think after getting rid of the pre-amp these are all I have to worry about, but I have no idea where the pickups wire to, and where the volume/blend pots wire to.
If the information is too vague, or you need to actually see the bass, sorry about that, and thanks for your time.

Jeff

Les Paul Pesonal, Professional?

Has anyone come across these obscurities for sale? I understand they took a special cord to be used properly. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Les Paul Pesonal, Professional?

I have a 69 Professional that I was thinking of selling. It does have a special cable that matches the impedance of amplifiers to the low impedance pickups that are factory standard on both models. It's also 20% heavier than a standard.

: Has anyone come across these obscurities for sale? I understand they took a special cord to be used properly. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Les Paul Pesonal, Professional?

I actually bought a Les Paul Professional in '69 as a young kid, and I have it to this day. I love the guitar and could never think of parting with it. Yes itrequired a low to hi impediance transformer between the amp and guitar as its pickups are of course low impediance. I still have the original manual if anyone wants a copy.
The reason it is heavy is because Les Paul wanted it the way. It was I believe th efirst guitar he designed when he rejoined the company in the late sixties. He played the Personal model for many years and cited it as his favourite. I believe he had an argument with Gibson over the weight ( which was made of solid British Honduras mahogamy ) They wanted to shave it but didn't want them to take a even a milimeter of it .. so as the story goes he left the company again and they stopped production of the Professional and subsequently brought out the Recording which was shaved and lighter. Of course it didn't have the masters blessing and didn't sell so well. I would think that the Personal and Professional's are quite rare. I know only three ever made it down to Australia.
Cheers,
Ian

Re: Les Paul Pesonal, Professional?

I also have a 1969 Professional model and would love to get a copy of the original manual.
