Has anyone seen anything like this on their '59 or any other long tenon LP?
Maybe someone forgot, or couldn't be bothered, to grind it down?

Looks like a CNC error or something like that but it's definitely the first time I see such thing

Runaway router. At least nobody's launched into a QC diatribe.

Yeah i know it's a short tenon never said other wise just that it looks like the routed out the tenon. all my other Lps with short tenon don't look like this one does. there is no outline where the neck is set into the body where as the custom does..

Ya, that one is interesting with what looks like a partial route.

The Bonamassa Custom takes a different routing template (or CNC program), being a 3-pickup body.

The offset on yours is odd.
My Custom and the '59s in this thread, the tenon is centered and maybe 1/2" narrower than the fingerboard. Yours looks offset and about 1/4" wider, like the cut on the Solo kits.

Yeah, my late 2019 Custom looks the same. Must have been a late transition. :hmm:

i thought they all looked like this?? Maybe we can get someone with a newer custom to post a pic. I swear it does look like they routed the long tenon out of it.. who knows right?
