I really need to put my hands on a new guitar!

posted Mar 17, 2014 13:39:57 by GsxJones
Im based in the North East of the UK,and yesterday visited a guitar show,where somebody had for sale a very unusual single pickup 58 style flametop LP. It had obviously been set up well and played beautifully,but unfortunately,I didnt have enough cash with me. The seller (dealer selling on behalf of a customer for the show)explained it wasnt an american guitar,but a chinese copy. lol. I was amazed. I own a couple of genuine USA Lp's (std and 3 pickup custom)and would have happily placed the chinese guitar along side them for playability/sound. Plus the chinese one looked better than my guitars! It took me a while to search the net to find any sellers,but now Im here! Having seen some of the guitars people have bought,Im now torn between a gold top LP,a EVH type guitar or a nice flame top LP. Ive enjoyed reading other peoples post's,but Im still nervous to jump in with my plastic bank card. Once I take the plunge,I'll report back with what Im ordering and we can see how it goes? Any advice greatfully received!! Thank you,Brett.

Just ask her nicely for some photos of the progress when she gets a chance. Normally after I do that I get some within a day or two.

I think my latest ones I got about seven days after she started working on it, though I've had some that took much longer (depending on build time of the body of course).

Well,after a very bad day,with being sent the wrong pics,we are back on track again. The headstock logo is being changed to les Paul model,but otherwise it looks pretty good to me.

The colour is different to the original sale pic,but I like it as is. I just hope the night shift dont change it. lol.

I had a message from Cathy to say the guitar is going for paint this week coming,and pics will follow. Hmm....I thought it was going for paint last week. Never mind. The anticipation is killing me.

Looks like water based stains they are using on those tops, thats probably why they have problems matching a finish.
It's great your getting pics as it gets built and you can change bit's you dont like, thats a much better way of quality control.

I think before it was going to the paint shop,I would seriously look at the routing at the tremolo cavity,because unless my eyes are deceiving me,that is way off being straight to the neck or the body.
Just a observation.

A relic, with f holes and a Floyd? That's just rude :)

yep, I've been sketching guitars like that just for the hell of it... my other plan is to make an SG so ugly it looks good.
