    Nice. I’ve been wanting to get a Les Paul Jr. and wire it like an Esquire. Hows that pick dispenser work?

    So you mean it's a pick disposal ... not a dispenser?

    "So you mean it's a pick disposal ... not a dispenser?"

    That is very true, but for a backward guy like me :)

    But, that gives me a great idea.
    If I can install a spring loaded tray of picks to where one pops out when I press down on the tone knob!
    Of course I will call that a pick disposal.;)

    Looks killer!

    The pick slot reminds me of the slot for used razor blades that used to be common in hotel/motel bathrooms.

    Install a pop-open battery door on the rear of the body behind the control cavity. That would make retrieving the picks a cinch.

    That would add a sort of tambourine thing to the guitar!



    Fiesta red looks great on a guitar. I refin'd a Gibson Flying V in fiesta red and people ask me where I got it because it's not a standard color.

    It looked good with the rosewood fretboard, but the maple really pulled it all together. Nice work!
