This is a scratch built les paul. Mahogany neck, northern redwood body and quilt maple top. Alnico humbucker pickups, Grover tuners and American hardware and electronics. This one was hand built and shows flaws such as tool marks, scratches and minor cosmetic imperfections from the build process. The back and neck have dings and Nick's from gigging and the neck has been repaired. It's as solid as a rock and even more stable than before. The repair cannot be seen via camera. It's set up perfectly with no free buzz and the neck is straight and true. It has that deep lp tone with just enough bite and never brittle. I had to repair a tear out near the control knobs, the seams are practically invisible due to a recent refinish in tobacco burst. It's a great playing and gigging guitar.
