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.  😀
