Les Paul glamor shots.

Just got the switch and control cavity covers made and installed today, so it was time for some “glamor shots”.  Kind of tongue-in-cheek, since there’s so much crap in the background…  😉

Les Paul guitar almost finished.

I haven’t posted any pictures of this project yet.  If I posted in-progress pics of everything I make, I’d never get anything done. 

So, anyway, this one is finished, except for the control and switch cavity covers, which I can’t make until an order comes in.  Also I need to buff the back, but I won’t do that until the covers are on.

The top is curly maple I got off of Ebay.  The body and neck are mahogany.  The headstock veneer and fingerboard are ebony.  Finish is nitro lacquer, with a tobacco burst.

These aren’t the greatest pictures, and don’t show the whole thing, so I’ll post more when it’s completely done.  Maybe even a sound clip.  😀

And this is what I had planned it to look like:

I made the above picture with this cool program:

Less Paul is finished

More or less.  I have to fix a couple things before I can sell it, but it’s strung up and playable.

It’s not very loud acoustically, and the f-hole is a real pain to make and to polish around, so I’m going to leave it off of the next version.

Right now both pickups are wired to the jack, but I intend to add a 3 position switch as soon as I get one.
