    Oh, and don't forget to burn it and install the tuners upside down.

    I really admire the work and the craftsmanship.
    That's a really bad-ass guitar, in the end.


    From a purely salesmanship standpoint though, I tend to believe that tuning the guitar up before the final playing demo would have helped just a bit.

    :(

    hmm - I think my Norlin LPC may still have the weight advantage

    And, bonus, my strings are in tune:cool:

    That was not meant to be a set neck. It has no tenon.

    The drip pan is a nice and imaginative touch.

    With a shop full of tools like that, you can probably build anything your mind dreams up, it somethings are not meant to be built.

    I guess I don't have to say who this is.

    But if you're familiar with Norlin-era Les Pauls, you KNOW they're absolute BEASTS! And here's that very same guitar at Ace is playing here, showing that in order to make that smoke bomb work and not destroy the guitar, it needed some serious mods which in current day terms would be considered weight relieve.
