Hello friends. This is my first Thread on this forum. But this is only because of the language barrier. I am from Belarus (this is not Russia!). If someone does not know, is a small, almost poor country between Poland and Russia, with the president-dictator and the terrible weather. *By profession I am an artist and a bit of a musician. But I love guitars and vintage. I had a lot of guitars and Aging Project. But three and a half years ago, I planned to build a 59 Les Paul, but such as I need. That is - really right and without compromise. Wood glue, hardware, paint - all must be like in the fifties. In my profession I am constantly confronted with the study of the history of ancient art, analysis and recovery technologies. I need to delve very deeply. I started to study the issue and searching for information. Over the years spent on the forums, I was able to learn a little English, and now I have fewer problems. I speak German, Polish, Belarusian and Russian. Now I can even speak English, but still I often have to Use an online translator. So do not judge strictly my writing. So, in 2012 I began to collect material for the drawings. Since none of that is accessible even for money, I have not found the drawing full compliance history, I began to draw my own. In many ways it has become for me an equation with many unknowns. My working trip to Europe gave me the opportunity to meet with several masters and hold it in the hands a few guitars of fifties. Since I do not have a carpenter's workshop and a serious experience in fine wood, I asked for help from my friend Valery Vaschenko. (I think some of you know his work). However, we have adjusted the process steps and started creating. Specifications of this guitar are: Body - Light Honduran mahogany. One piece Neck - Light Honduran mahogany. One piece Тор - Eastern maple Fretboard - Brazilian Rosewood nearly 100 years of aging Vintage fret scale 24 3/4'' Rule 18 Holly on the headstock Royalite binding, cellulose inlays, Tortoise dots on the neck binding Nylon nut, Montreux and DMC parts, Stephens Design PAF pickups... So much more is possible to write, but it is better to show the pictures.
