Re: Set Neck Les Paul "Kit"

Thanks dino!Thre nice looking guitars! I think the lp kit would look better with black inlays.

Heres a question,just curious.
How would you accomplish a black semigloss finish?like more on the matte side of things,i guess you could say satin.

I've only tried this with 2-part acrylic urethane ...
One way to do this is to shoot a gloss clearcoat, wetsand it without using a buffing compound just to knock off the gloss, then take 0000 super fine steel wool to it.

That's how I did this one ...



Another way to do it is to use a flat clearcoat.
The clearcoat actually has a flattening agent which works well, but it will eventually get shiney with wear.

From the DIYGuitars store, or elsewhere?

I was liking what I saw from them, with the exception that no holes were drilled for the stoptail/Tune-O-Matic.

Re: Set Neck Les Paul "Kit"

I used to have 1 of those eden LP guitars, for the money they are pretty good, real maple top with a flame veneer on it, once I set mine up and installed everything, and intonated it it sounded pretty awesome, it's epiphone quality but what do u expect for what they are asking, it just sux you gotta pay all that money for shipping, mine also came with a case.

Re: Set Neck Les Paul "Kit"

Warmoth makes a LP style body, but you have to go with a bolt on neck. . .

Warmoth Direct - LP Bodies

Musikraft makes a set net guitar kit in either Tele or Strat shapes (sorry, no LP!). . .

https://www.musikraft.com/product-info.php?pid118.html

Neither are quite what you're looking for, but perhaps one is worth considering.

Based on the kits I saw, the goldtops and other solid tops are all mahogany, but some are flame maple tops, others are maple with light flame veneers.

Re: Set Neck Les Paul "Kit"

I bought an Eden body from e-bay for $60, had a broken headstock on it.
Covered in super thick Poly but had a three piece maple top. I filled the holes and covered it with a flame maple veneer after stripping it. PITA big time.
It definately was worth the money I spent on it. I made a maple neck for it and re-routed the neck pocket for the tenon. With all the hardware new pickups and nitro lacquer I should have about $400 into it

Re: Set Neck Les Paul "Kit"

We are getting ready to introduce our Les Paul style kit very soon. The prototypes are finished and they are awesome. We are working on minor details like pricing right now. Visit Mith Guitars. It is just a coming attractions website right now, but it has all of our contact information and a little blurb of why.

These will be high quality American made bodies and necks sold as a set. We paln to offer complete guitars as well, but we started this because we couldn't find what you are looking for.

I hope you can hang with us for just a little while longer...i think the wait will be worth it.

Re: Set Neck Les Paul "Kit"

Don't get a set neck kit from guitar parts online. I just had a real bad experience with them. The neck in the kit was badly 'dog-legged' with side bend. ( I never seen a neck bent that way before). It is bent where once it would be set up, string would run close to - if not off the fretboard. I did not do anything with the kit but open it to check the parts out. I contacted them and they said they do not do refunds or exchanges. ( I was trying to work with them and was willing to exchange the $249.95 kit for a cheaper $109.95 tele or strat kit as I figured if nothing else, if the neck was bad in one of those I could just use the body and maybe some other parts). They don't stand behing thestuff they are selling. My review of Guitar Parts Online - aka TNT Guitars - Dragonfire is not good at all. I recommend avoiding.
