I love a good Les Paul.

To bad most of them made lately are junk.

I saw a $6500 Les Paul Standard Premium Plus www.gibson.com/products/gibson/lespaul/Standardpp.html the other day at my local music store and the finish was terrible looking. I could spray a better finish on that guitar while mowing a lawn, in August, after not having any rain for six months.



It had a 4 piece neck.

The frets were finished, yeah by a 3rd grader.

The "Gibson" logo on the headstock was a sticker....

Screws holding the tuning keys on were not even screwed all the way down.

Trapezoid inlays on the neck were shoddy, fit was terrible, not level.

Binding was sloppy.

Action was high as a kite.

I would not have given them $65 for it let alone $6500.

CJ,
that is some great work. They say it takes an artist to play one, but it damn well does take one to build one.
