    Finally arrived from the garage. After all the messing with the bridge placement and two fret levels, not to forget all your helpful input, it's strung up and very playable.
    Thanks guys,

    Very nice. Build pics? On my bucket list to build. A co-worker has his Dad's 1959, so I am going to make my templates from it.

    Great looking axe. Les Paul jr/ or special? Is it a short scale? I love the vintage vibe.

    Junior, 24 3/4 scale. I was going for vintage vibe and through the process learnt nearly all bridges cannot be angled so had to redo the bridge placement trying to keep little bit of an angle on it for looks. I see why fender type/bolt on necks are a good idea now as well. Great learning process though. Keeps me out of trouble.

    Beautifully detailed; I like how the abalone on the control knobs is repeated in the fretboard markers - and that multi-piece neck is stunning!
    What's the hardware?
