Les Paul Junior

Post by martintaylor » Fri Aug 03, 2018 3:39 pm

And in teh middle of all the school builds, I have finished my Les Paul Junior. Figured Red Cedar drop top on a Mahogany body. Mahogany neck, Rosewood fretboard, Mick Brierley P90 hand wound pickup (which is awesome) and nitro finish.

Thanks Greg. The cedar came from Boutique Timbers up at Rollands Plains. It was in a messy slab that didn't look too great to start with but after some planning produced the top. I have about 2 or 3 more sets from the same slab that are heading towards commission builds

Hi Steve, it came from their yard or paddock would be a better description!
