Yes Chef, I apologize here are a few prior to the newer hardware, the mahogany of the body is incredibly beautiful, one of the sweetest lookin grain patterns I have seen, seriously.
Here are some existing shots, I will shoot pics of the new Dr. Vintage controls and the vintage style wiring configuration. Also the knobs are mounted correctly as they were in the fifties:
Notice the beauty of the top carve as well
The guitar is very light, I will have a weight tomorrow.I actually sold my 100% original 1954 Les Paul Junior in deference to this guitar, before I even put all the additional money into her to make her perfect
I never ever have bought a guitar to sell, I buy them to keep and make them the finest playing and looking guitars I can.
These are all with the old hardware fitted, not the Steve Rowen Pigtail pieces.
My parts from Steve are some of the last he built before he passed on.
Not the aged RS Klusons yet
I am really not doing her justice with these old photos, these are pre the Dr.Vintage makeover, pre- fretboard cleaning and oiling and fret polishing
Tonight I am shooting all new pictures to show how incredible it looks now.
