    Default New Project: Les Paul Armegeddon!!!

    I created another monster. It started life as a Les Paul Studio someone crudely tried converting into a Standard. I got it for beans. I turned it into an abomination of Les Pauls.



    bwahahahahahahaha!!!!!!!

    Pics to come soon...
    Dammit!!! I still smell like cotton candy!!!

    I will post a pic or two of her BEFORE paint. This is the telling part. And you know- if the binding channels the PO did weren't so crude, I would probably bind this guitar. The control cavity was crudely routed (with a DRILL!!!) for EMG's, so there is some filling I did. But the top is a very, very plain top, which makes it not all that suitable for 'bursting. This axe does have a maple/rosewood neck, a vestige of the old maple-necked LP Customs from the late '70s (ala Bucket Head and Zakk Wylde, albeit no maple board). They must have used the unused maple neck backs left over from that ill-fated model when running these.

    It was an '88 Studio- yes, one of the earlier examples before they went nuts and put trap inlays on them. I would have shot the dude first if he would have defiled an '84 Studio (rare bound version of the Studio, one year run). An '88 isn't all that big of a deal, however (with the exception of the maple neck).

    For all the bad that went on, a nice, pro re-fret is on there. Daddy likes the frets, and there's lots of life left in them.

    Flat-black textured paint with a silver, stenciled "4" on the front and back. I also have a "4" on the peghead.

    Why "4"? As in the Four Horsemen of the Apocolypse!!!

    Danish oil on the not-highly-figured maple neck.

    I forgot to tell y'all that the PO trie to inlay a MOP Gibson logo in the peghead. The "4" covers up that hack job.

    This will be a ten footer for certain!!! The shaved heel was done correctly, however, and daddy likes that.

    All you need now is a Rockinger Les-Trem II to finish her off.
