Bruce Bennett here, currently I'm the Luthier for J.Backlund Design Guitars, formerly of the Steinberger/Tobias division of Gibson ( Nashville Plant) and luthier for the Warrior Instruments line. I have 33 years of experience in building custom electric guitars, amps and pedals.

I have nice little Single cut Les Paul Jr "in the white"
this one was build to a pattern made from a 1956 SC LP JR from a close friends collection.

presently, you would have your choice of just about everything except pickup style.

very nice Solid mahogany body and single piece quarter sawn neck with a deep set tenion and dual action truss rod and an old stock braz rose wood fingerboard. scal is of course correct for Gibson of that time period.

so, your choice of hardware, paint color & pickguard color and inlay styles and appointments.

price would be commensurate with options. can be 1495.00 up to 2495.00 if you want a full "G" ibson clone. would come with a semi-hard case of course. only a small deposit of 750.00 to finish and bal. due at time of shipping in approximately 6-8 weeks.

all questions are welcome and I'm open to suggestions or offers as well.
thank you for looking.

the guitar above is now complete, and finished in a beautiful TV yellow and it's up on eBay.

its currently sitting at a total insult of a PRICE. and I'm not gonna pull this auction early, whatever it goes for is the deal. and presently its a real STEAL of a deal.

So anyone that really wants a truly awesome LP JR SC in TV yellow.. with Genuine Gibson pickup and a Brazilian Rosewood board should at least take a look at this one.
and with my 14 day return policy. you really can't lose.

item number 251280193445 LP Jr Styled Electric Guitar Made in USA by Bruce Bennett | eBay


Before anyone gets all bent out of shape about me posting here..

Alex gave me permission to post ads in the members classified section, as far as I know its the only reason I have a "VIP member" thing under my name.
and instead of posting a brand new ad.. I simply found my old one and updated it.

yes sir. and the back plate and output jack plate as well.
all out of the Nitrate tortoise shell.


and all by hand.. no routers. just a jeweler frame saw, a drill, two different files and a razor blade
