    Hi,
    I want to buy or make a flat LP but apart from Gibson who charges thousands for their Special I don't know anyother company that sells a two Humbucker flat LP shaped guitar with a mahogany body and neck for a reasonable price.
    Can someone suggest guitars that fit the description?

    Before coming here I've hit Google to no avail.

    Thanks in advance.

    Huh, you can find Gibson Les Paul Special with Humbuckers for around $600.

    Where do you live? I'm guessing not in North America.

    You can get a two-hum Les Paul shaped guitar for under $300. It depends on how lienient you are about what you consider "Les Paul shaped".

    They seem to be missing a humbucker. Or two.

    And a single-cut body.

    But it is flat.

    Costs Too much money for me...
    Doesan anyonenow if Vintage has any model that looks like a flat LP?
    I really want something cheap cause I know I'm going to modify the heck out of it..
    It can be second hand even. Just nothing over 250/300

    What is your common choices for shopping second-hand in Portugal? That seems like the way to go.

    Epiphone are cheap and good, but not set neck as far as I know. Why not a Gibson M2? :fingersx:

    That Gibby looks good but it's a)too expensive (about 500) around here, and b) made of poplar and maple(not what I want to begin with as wood is the only thing you can't change in a guitar.
    Maybe a Single Cut LP junior kit would be the way to go, as I could buy it on the cheap and modify it, but the only one I found is from Precision and extremely expensive. Probably worth it but I can't afford it. Are there any other companies making them?

    You'll have a hard time finding any mahogany body+neck on a pricerange of 250-300€

    asian pseudo mahogany (with veneer-top) yes - real mahogany probably never
