    My only replica, a Keebler made by "The Elf" with the 17th fret neck joint...not the traditional 16th fret that's used on Gibsons. While it won't accept a standard pickguard, the tone, playability and looks make up for it. Pictures make the guitar more red than in real life.

    This guitar has a 61 Gibson wiring harness (500K Centralab pots, BB .022 caps, wired 50's style), old ABR-1 (with a wire, hated the non wire model that let the saddles fall out during string changes), old aluminum tailpiece & studs, WCR Darkburst pickups, Angel parts toggle switch ring, pickup rings, jack plate, NOCD aged switchtip (LPF member who aged the toggle switch cap). Guitar was made with old growth mahogany, Eastern Maple top (flecks give that away), and all the other features of the old Gibsons, minus the expensive plastic, of course.
