So, I bought a crappy Epiphone Les Paul Jr. this weekend for $15 Canadian. It's in pretty rough shape, but my girlfriend has been talking about getting into guitar and has a pretty specific taste (simple shape, ridiculous colour), so this seems like a fun project to get her invested. I also have a Gibson P90 that a guy gave me a while ago and I haven't put to use yet... so electronics upgrade! The plan is: - Tear it down (done) - Strip the body and neck - Refinish the neck white - Refinish the body and front of the headstock with gold leaf and black decals (it will blind everyone) - New tuning machines (have some gotohs kicking around) - Bone nut - Fret cleanup - New bridge (have one of those hipshot baby grands in the box o' stuff) - Small amount of routing in the pickup cavity - P90 - Tort pickguard - Concentric tone pot for treble and bass control Wish me luck. Here's the ugly little guy now.
