Topic: NGD - I made it myself ! :)
My friend that I taught with for 25 years retired and I gave him my Les Paul as a gift.
I was missing it one day and decided to build one.
This is what I made. It has 2 Dream 180 Humbuckers. It sounds really good to me.
It was really, really, really hard to make - a lot of thinking - angles and alignment etc.... a lot of patiencea lot harder than making the strat. Here are the pictures of it finished. I was going to upload some of the work photos - but it took much data space.
The wood is layered - Cherry on top, Walnut in the middle, and butternut on bottom.
the neck plate is an engraving of my three daughters..
I learned a lot about the workings of a Les Paul in building this. If only I could play well !
Thanks for looking at these
