I think this was posted here before but maybe I saw it on random searches on google.

I came really close to messing with my 80 EGC and turning it into a 55 style p90 black beauty. It wouldn't have been quite right though because the originals had mahogany caps. I was going to run into issues getting maple in Australia to fill in the top, So many points at which you can screw things up. I realized it was a risky project and gave up early. I still needed to refinish the guitar and repair a neck crack and even that was not easy. I have respect for people that can do this sort of work quickly but for me it was just another ADHD style side track that was going to prevent me from playing the guitar for months.

I did this with a Bulldog kit build that I bought off somebody already finished. It came out good enough for me, which is to say that I don't invite people to look too close at it.
