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!
so in other words if put on reverb or ebay which handful of limited models would fetch top $$$$$$$$$$
if you dont know for sure but care to speculate - go for it
also if you only know of one or two - not 5 - feel free to chime in
lets exclude "one of a kind " commissioned pieces
well if thats the case then Fenders Telecasters and Strats are
wake up my friend - you are living in the past
OK - so I have a few questions for you - using YOUR logic :
1) Are the Fender Telecasters and Strats made in Mexico - forgeries even tho they are absolutely official Fender products...
we have a nope - we have a nope - we have a nope
can I get a " HELL YES " ??????
can someone - " pretty please - with sugar on top " - give me a heck ya ?
for the money you just can get no better than them Chinese LP gee-tars ........ snort
folks - I aint even bulllshiting here
Hey guys -
I did the survey and its very clear the general consensus was that there is a strong preference for an American made Les Paul reissue.
But I feel like the thread is going in a bad direction here - I take some responsibility
while some may think I posted it just to stir some shit...
What would make you think that a guitar made in another country cant be equal or superior to one made in the United States ?
please explain that to me with fact or logic ........
they say a video is worth one million words
the moderator of the Forum thanked me for posting the thread - so you get a life Dude !
and why should I care what big AL says about Historics - I have been around them for 20 years - been to the big guitar shows and probably seen more vintage Gibson then him at the Museum of MAKING MUSIC...
all I am trying to say is this :
your toaster - your blender
your feminine products
for the Vagina
you can bet your bottom dollar
they are all made in China
your video games - your clock
your favorite plastic Bong
you can be sure
all came from Hong Kong
SOME FOLKS WERE HAPPY
SOME FOLKS GOT MEAN
BECAUSE OF BIG AL
STUMPHEAD BECAME DR. GREEN
IF YOU LIKE TO DANCE
OR IF YOU LIKE TO SING
THAT MIC THAT YOU BOUGHT
WAS MADE IN BEIJING
IT DONT MATTER IF YOU ARE A PAINTER
OR COAL MINER
LOOK AROUND YOUR HOUSE
EVERYTHING IS MADE IN CHINA
I assume then that you would have been very open to paying 6000 for an American flat screen tv instead of 2000 for one made in China ?
American Iphone ..... nobody would complain if it was 2,000 ?
Modeling amp made in New York for 3 times the price ?
Laptops made in Boston for 3 to 4 times...
Fender is as American as Gibson ..... ask anyone
Nobody is freaking out about Fender making guitars overseas and all the dealers you guys know talk them up and act real prideful when they show them to you.
They act like the country its made in is no big deal at all.,,,,,, and its not like...
not dumb at all
I am not talking cheap Chibson quality - I am talking finest quality by a company such as Eastman who have experienced luthiers who make things such as jazz archtops and violins already ....................................snort
