Are you going to go with a thin neck? Jimmy Page (who you obviously admire) played an early 60's style neck I believe, a 1960 Les Paul. However he still had the neck shaved down even more. Myself, I like fat necks, at least always have so far.

If I were you I would leave the pick guard off, I have 2 with it installed, two without. I think they should just provide the pick guard and leave it up to you do put it on if you want.

Tell them to book match the bottom flame with the top. My Les Paul Traditional is like that, it really looks sharp. I don't think it is actually book matched with the same piece of wood, they just found two pieces of wood where the flame lines really line up nicely, so it looks like it is book matched. Also, tell them that you would like them to select some light weight mahogany, so it does not need to be weight relieved. My 58 Reissue is like that, no weight relief at all, but it still weighs a half lb. less than my Les Paul Traditional, which is weight relieved with the Swiss cheese holes. They can do all that, just tell them I said you were headed for international stardom, and it will be good publicity for them, to take that kind of care in the selection of the wood. At least for any that they give to you for your own use.

Hey guys, i just want to share with you all that just closed a deal with a local guitar company that will make me a signature guitar smile.gif, im so glad right now, i will be working closely with the team of luthiers to make it to my own specs, and maybe one day it could be a production series.

Its going to be basically a les paul, but with some modifications for my playing, i can wait!

Will be something like this:



cant wait!!

Hey dude, thanks for all the advice, i gotta admit i don't have too much experience with les pauls, but i do love how they sound, how they feel and how they look, so why not? but yeah i need advice for sure from a les paul lover (and owner)

I do admire mr jimmy page, he plays i think a 59 or 60 right?, i'm doing for sure a thinner neck, i do like fatties, but i think i need something between my strat (very thin aftermarket neck) and my flying V, that's a fat but no SO fat neck.

But im keeping the pickguard biggrin.gif i like how it looks, and i'm going vintage with the look smile.gif

I will go and select the top myself if i can, i would love a matching one!

I don't want weight relief, so yeah, i think a light weight mahogany is the way to go, i'm also making a cut away curvy thing for better access, i think the LP from the rush guitar player is like that.

Very excited, and open to feedback!

Vintage... That would be the scrubbed off paint like fender? That looks really cool. smile.gif I have an Epi Les Paul and somehow I feel I can't reach the higher frets easily. Probably they were made mainly for blues/rock stuff but soloing is pretty hard in regards to other guitars like Ibanez). Not sure if that can be corrected easily. The other issue I have with LP is the resting right hand section. They are curved out so it kinda hits your on that arm. Fender Strat has them curved in so it rests pretty well. The tone in itself is really warm though. smile.gif

Oh and I hate those 4 knobs.. I am a minimalist person so just my point of view. smile.gif

Well it's not going to be THAT vintage biggrin.gif, but i don't want any gloss on the guitar, and yeah it will have better access to the higher frets i think, im actually thinking about that and trying dif guitars on the shop.

I do one the 4 knobs this time, i wanna do kill switch, and i wanna go from full tone to none tone with the switch too smile.gif
