    Could anyone please help me clarifying which plane angle should I use when routing the pickup legs and cavities? The pup plane or neck plane angle? Thx a lot. Douglas.

    Neck angle is historically accurate.

    Where you able to order the neck blank with the angle already in the headstock? If so, can I ask where you purchased the body and neck blank?

    I am new to this forum, and this would be my first Les Paul build - I have been searching around the net, and you have by far one of the nicest threads with great pictures, and lots of VERY helpful info - thank you for sharing your knowledge with all of us ;-)
