    Thank you, and I am sure Gil says thanks too.

    Yes, just one press for top/back since it is symmetrical. And the 330 is identical. Interestingly the 330 is the first designed double cut Gibson made. If you notice it looks more "perfect". Look where the bridge lines up. Notice on the 330 that the bridge lines up with the "knicks" just like a stadivari violin.

    Nice! Congrats Gill.
    White strap buttons too. And a nice low neck angle... somebody is lucky.

    Great thread. Stumbled upon the 59 Les Paul build thread 3 weeks ago, still not finished with it yet, and came across this one as well. What an incredible journey - thanks so kuch for sharing, gentlemen.

    You are very welcome.

    I am trying to talk Gil into making a Crest.

    Can you see the picture Gil? It's a 335 shape made with Brazilian Rosewood veneers. It would probably sound better if it was built like a 335 because I believe the crest is hollow.
