    Ok, so here it is after some testing :)

    Great top- very similar to original and phenomenal weight - 3,72kg- so just as Joe's original - supposedly around 8'2 pounds. Maybe Joe can chime in and confirm.

    My search for ultimate LP has ended.

    Neck is a bit on chunky side- bigger than my 2011 R9.

    Custombucker bridge 7,77 kOhm
    BB 3 neck 8,03 kOhm - hehehh, that made me think, but in practice- it works.

    Sound is great with stock pickups which was a surprise to me - I always change them. I have BonaSeymour's ready so one day I'll install them :)

    Enjoy this beauty- totally 3D top. Color is impossible to photograph- to make it look like it really does- in person it just kills !

    Sweet. I don't know which is better - the guitar or your photography. What camera did you use?

    It's not anything fancy- Nikon D90 with Tamron 17-50mm f2.8 lens

    Remember- it's like with guitar- gear doesn't matter as much as the operator :)
    I guess I'm better photographer than guitar player- lol :p

    That's a nice top on that one. I like the mineral graining with the flame stripe. Congrats

    Beautiful top, that's the best one I've seen as well.

    Sorry if this has been asked a million times before, how do you post giant photos? Host it on something other than photobucket I would assume as that site seems to compress them. Don't mean to detract from the thread, awesome guitar and photos!

    top wrapped. Interesting. They don't seem to be consistently coming like that.
    Awesome top and congrats. I agree you are a good photographer - while i have obviously not seen this one in person, the pics are awesome! And I have a D90, and I think it's "special", although I don't use it anywhere near it's potential! Thanks for posting such great pics!
