The newest addition to my weekend projects. This is a version of a Les Paul guitar. No arch, flattop with a bolt on neck. The headstock was set at a 13 degree angle, unlike the 17 degree on a Gibson. The neck is made out of Honduran Mahogany and wrapped with Curly Mahogany binding. The fretboard set at 24.75 standard and is made from ( aged ) Indian Rosewood and inlay’d with MOP fret markers. The headplate is Curly Claro walnut. Body is made from Honduran Mahogany with a Curly fiddleback walnut top plate, wrapped in white pearloid binding. The truss rod cover and the pickup mounts are Sapele. The guitar was fitted with a Hipshot Baby Grand bridge, EMG active pickups, bone nut and misc. Les Paul accessories. The knobs are from a Strat. Fretboard radius is 12” and bridge mirrors the same. Plays well with no shims in neck pocket. Straight. Thanks for looking.
