    The only thing I do not like are the speed knobs but it is your guitar and you built it THE WAY YOU DAMN WELL WANTED IT. lol That is sure pretty,. I love the figure on it. And the white really makes it pop.

    If you are referring to Orange drops they DEFINITELY don't suck. Are there better caps out there? Probably. I have drops in my Bulldog with 50's wiring and it kicks the hell out of my 76 Custom in tone, usefulness of the controls, etc.

    Hi, not sure if this is the best place to post this question but here it is anyway. lol .. I was just wondering what plans you are using? I have the Stewmac & Catto neither of which have the routing depths for the pickups cavities etc.. I could probably just measure the Les Paul's I have but does anyone know of another set of plans with these details I could use in conjunction with the ones I have? Any input will be greatly appreciated..

    Thanks, Jason

    http://www.mylespaul.com/forums/luthiers-corner/74649-lp-build-2-eastern-maple-carved-top-content.html#post1441714

    The plans from Eastern Maple Carved Tops are being used.

    They can be bought from Tom Bartlett here: Plans
