• 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!


Lacquer is a very good finish for musical instruments. It is a slightly porous finish, and allows the wood to 'breathe'. Lacquer can also be applied very thin, so as to not dampen the tone of the instrument. Lacquer also will age to an attractive dull patina, and the clear will age to a slightly amberish hue over time.
