Thanks for the email. The experience of building the Les Paul from your neck and body was really great. The build went really well – particularly enjoyed learning to do the binding. The only thing not yet done is the headstock inlay and logo – and that because I’m still debating. But, she plays superbly. The action and feel of the neck is really a pleasure and feedback from the musicians I play with (and who have played the new guitar) has been universally great. So far the only maintenance work has been some work on the fret ends after the New York City winter set in – the heat dries everything to a crisp. But I’ve had to do that on pretty much all my guitars. In a word the guitar looks superb and plays incredibly.
Here’s a couple of images both before and after the pick guard was mounted.
Thanks again. My go to guitar!
