so, I picked up this little beauty a while back and was wondering if it used to belonged to anybody here?
Oh, you're a funny guy...Rough. You pay 5 bucks?
I did notice the screw holes but I'd never seen the neck pocket for a short tenon so I didn't know what to expect. Did you route it for a long tenon now?...not many people rout their Gibson for a bolt on neck after snapping the headstock, soooo....what more would they need to see?
You obviously haven't looked at the pics. It has a two piece maple top and a nice mahogany back.(...) Why waste a high end real Gibson custom neck on a lower end multi-piece body? Why not just look for a body from an existing gibson LP standard or custom and use that so that the result is something of equal caliber throughout?

Although I can appreciate the work and craftsmanship you are putting into it, I question motivation. Why waste a high end real Gibson custom neck on a lower end multi-piece body? Why not just look for a body from an existing gibson LP standard or custom and use that so that the result is something of equal caliber throughout?
I used a floating router jig I build a while back.TKO - Great photos and nice work. The binding looks perfect. What kind of jig did you make to rout the binding slot (to compensate for the arch top)?
What kind of finish (color, I am assuming you're going to put a nitro finish on it) are you going to give it?
...and how the hell do you keep your bench looking so neat (or did you clean it up for the photo)?
exactly, friggin' cork sniffers crack me up.Awesome looking body and great workmanship!
Looking forward to seeing the finished axe.
"...low end multipiece....bla bla.." such bullcrap some dudes try to make it sound like they know something..
