Yes Voices maybe still has.
If not, I have a couple different versions (Model, Special, Junior) to offer.

Decided I'm going to learn more about electric guitars by trying to get my Epi Les Paul to sound and play better. I have a Custom "Black Beauty" and need tools and materials to build a new nut level and crown the frets, and replace the pickups. Vague I know, but I'm hoping this is a good place to start.

There you go... by one of the many "gods" of luthiery on this forum, Roman.

And to tack on a request, does anyone happen to have a roughly finished maple neck or could make one for a poor Epiphone Les Paul? (and it's one of those offset short tenon joint abominations) I'm planning to completely rebuild mine and the neck on it is busted up and after doing some intense research on re-necking one, that's all I really need. That guitar was the very reason I joined here something like 5-6 years back and now, being a mature and more clear-minded man of guitar-tech and luthiery knoledge, I really want to bring her back from the dead and start rocking with it again.

I have a neck blank from the other half of the billet that this neck came from.

I have a couple of carved tops for sale. This one is from a very old billet of fiddle back eastern rock maple with lots of minerals. It was jointed with hot hide glue and CNC cut to perfection. Not a bit of pullout on the back like some of the others sell. $275 shipped







This is the bottom jointed side. Perfect!

I recently lucked out and was able to purchase a large amount of old growth Honduras Mahogany from a retired boat mill that stopped producing in the early 1970s. The gentleman who owned the shop told me he had purchased the lumber at least 15 years before going out of business so it's been in the country for 55+ years. It's hands down the best tonewood when it comes to Mahogany guitars. The planks average 2.2-2.6 lbs per board foot and I have already milled some of it to my specs. For Les Paul builders, I have 1 and 2 piece body blanks and 1 piece perfectly quartered neck blanks available.

I have a large quantity of necks but the body's are limited. All orders are cut to spec. If you need the body shaped just ask. Also please feel free to inquire about built necks.

Neck blank - Makes 1 neck (routh cut to shape with jointed/sanded fretboard edge $75

Neck blank - Makes 2 Gibson Les Paul long neck tenon necks or 1 explorer/V neck and 1 Les Paul Special neck. $115

1 Piece Body Blank - highest quality $180

2 piece Body Blank - Large middle (11" with small 2" wing) $120

2 piece center seam body - $80

I thought this was a good excuse to revive this old thread. In case anyone in the world still has a VCR tape player, and could use any of these tapes, I'd happily send these (prefer to send them all to one place) to you for free (CONUS only, please):

If interested, either PM me, or email me at [email protected]
