That's not specifying a lot actually. Nobody needs to hear the dictionary definition of the word replica but each detail that differs from the original pushes it further from true replica status.
it isn't specifying a lot but my statement was a minimum IMO of what would be required
the reason I asked is, as I stated, everyone seems to have a different opinion as to what they consider to be a replica
I see there are replica builders making LP types with different species of lumber but one common theme seems to be ..........
* 1 piece body back
* 2 piece/center seam solid top
* 1 piece neck
I would consider my Bacchus flame top, my 1 piece body back Bacchus LPs, my Combat Custom Guitars LP, and my LS-320 to be replicas but then then some others would not
to me it wouldn't matter if someone else considered any of those a replica becuase, they are all great guitars that meet my minimum requirement to be a replica but it really isn't a biggy for me
I was interested to see what the OP considers to be a replica
