• 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!

Hey Brian I ws looking at an old post you made on your junior I recently got one used and it has Grover locking tuners on it. I want to get them off asap. I was wondering what yo used, as you mentioned you upgraded with conversion bushings . Also did you get a Mojoaxe wrap tail piece? how did that work out ?

thanks and best

As for tuners I used 3x3 Kluson. Not totally vintage correct but they look much better than the stock or grovers I think.

Sure, hit me up. Hard to write much here as they limit how long a response can be.
Hey Mat!

Greetings!

I have a very simple question: Does Epiphone have an ACTUAL, PHYSICAL, Custom Shop in Nashville or Overseas?

I am under the impression that they DO NOT have a physical location and that the Epiphone Guitars labeled 'Custom " are made in China with different finishes, pickups, etc.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Bob! I'm not sure what Epiphone you are referring to...we do have some Epiphone "Inspired by Gibson Custom Shop" models made overseas that were designed and spec'd in collaboration with the Custom Shop team (and myself). But our Epiphone factory in China operates very similarly to what we are doing stateside and we are looking to grow our abilities with highly ornate guitars and even aging.
Hey CC,

Is that YOUR band...? Nice feeling and groove...!

That WAS my band. Covid and having to move 300 miles away put and end to it.
Thanks, though...
It was a good run.

Hey Amigo,

I saw your name the other day and sent you a 'like', and you sent me one as well. Thanks for that. Nice to see that after all these years you are still 'stirring up shite' on the old LPF. I hope life has been treating you well.

Best,

Thanks for reaching across the years and sending up a signal. Good to see you here. After a few bumps and hollows, my life seems to be well. Here's hoping yours is, too.

I have a Gibson Les Paul "Jeff Beck" R4 without the mounting ring cutout for easier string changes... any idea where I can get one?
