The guitar i'm going to be working on is a mystery. it was found on the side of the road by a freind of a freind of a guitar player in a show I sound teched for recently. the guitar was handed over to me to repair a minor issue, then I purchased it for $20, thinking it would be a fun project once school gets out. At first glance, it looks like a Gibson Les Paul, but it is not. For one thing, there's no hole for the truss rod on the head stock. closer inspection reveals no truss rod adjustment in the neck pickup pocket either. this is a set neck, so either there is no truss rod, or it's in the neck without any way to adjust it. second of all, it has a metal nut. so having established this not to be a real LP, i feel no shame screwing up and utterly destroying this guitar shaped peice of wood. that being said, i aim to turn this into a playable guitar, so lets run over the problems binding broken off on one side of the neck pots not working metal nut that fell out when i took off the strings neck coming loose binding broken around body missing strap button broken toggle switch so, lets get to work.
