This is a scratch built les paul. Mahogany body and neck with a thick maple cap. Finished in nitrocellulose and distressed. Alnico 5 PAF humbuckers, kluson tuners and American hardware and electronics. The wiring is just a bit strange, the volume knob for the bridge controls both pickups volumes. This should be an easy fix back to standard wiring. The neck is straight and it plays very smooth. It has a deep resonance with the maple bite. I bought the husk from an MLP member a while back and finished it off. There are a few cosmetic flaws here and there but it plays and sounds killer. Asking $700

Somebody's gotta ask so may as well be me: What's the weight?

Nice! What does the headstock look like? Is it what we’d expect?

Nice job on the distressed GT. Looks like an excellent project for someone - GLWS!
