    Les Paul style guitar

    Here is a guitar I finished at the end of January, I built it for a friend. Its loosely based on a 1959 les paul standard. Unlike most les pauls this is all maple except for the walnut strips in the neck, It also has a multi piece neck rather than the traditional single piece. More pics to comeClick image for larger version.

    That is looking great. The inlay in the fret board has got to take some time and patience. What do you use to cut fret slots?

    The pic uploader doesn't show upload status, and I have to close and re-open the manage attachments window a few time until some of the pics I am trying to upload actually show up as uploaded. ????
