Guitar build – part 1
Over the last few months I’ve been gathering bits and pieces (mostly on eBay) for a guitar.
Firstly I picked up a Les Paul Special II body and then a neck to match, plus some zebra humbucker pick-ups. The body was black and somewhat scratched (I forgot to take a ‘before’ shot), so I decided to respray it. After seeing the PRS Starla which Jack from The Digital Age I opted for a retro sea-foam green with cream accessories.
The neck I picked up seems to be new, and was unfinished, but the headstock was just slightly asymmetric (though unintentionally!), so I decided to make it properly asymmetrical, and give it the usual LP black face:
The next step is the fine wet-sanding and polish to get a shinier finish, and then bolt the neck on, solder the electrics and install them.
