Cool! Les Pauls that haven’t been babied
I always thought these were neck through, this one doesn’t appear to be
I traded a guy a Kahler and a couple of pickups for this. It was an Xaviere which he stripped with the notion of refinishing but never did. I intended to make it my first attempt at burst but decided it had such a vibe as-is that I would leave it.
BTW if you are going to use a heat gun to strip a finish, don't linger too long in one spot
It's a neck through, two pieces of wood total. The bottom piece; the body and neck are a single piece of wood, and top piece, an added wing. Most of these guitars are three pieces, Center piece, with the body and neck, and two wings.
Hey, no better time to do a neck reset than now!
I've got a couple of those.
My LPs probably take the worst beatings out of all of my guitars.
1976 American Tele, lot of miles, lot of music had come from this axe. Still plays and, sounds awesome!
I played the **** out of this LP, I bought it new in 1994 or 95 for my dad for Christmas. When he passed away I got it back, that was in 1999.
I’ve dropped it several times, I put the pickup covers from another Classic on it but could never get them to properly fit. 3 of the 4 knobs were busted so I bought new ones but ordered the wrong color, they’re really dark amber, I’m going to replace them soon. It’s got a big dent in the bottom from falling over onto something.
it has a tiny bit of paint missing from where my arm rubs. I mean, 15 years of playing an hour or two daily and that’s all it did to the finish. That’s why I just laugh when I see “reliced” guitars with big areas of paint missing.
Anyway my Classic has dents and dings and scratches all over it and it’s cool knowing they were all put there by my dad or I.
when I die hopefully there will be a kid in the family who is into guitars and it will become a family heirloom.
very cool looking guitar man.
Here's my parts bucket that's treated with little respect... but still keeps coming up with the goods!
Are those schallers on there? Did you put them on?
Was there anything wrong with the original tuners or was it just the thing to do, seems a lot of these are replaced for no reason other than they were looked down upon
My son just turned 40 and I think I've had this K.Larsen hard tail Strat since about the time he was born.

*Di Marzio neck

It has a sticker, the limit of my abuse!
Here’s my mash up of fender parts. A 80’s fender 57 reissue body only with everything else from my AV 54 Strat that was intentionally fake aged. The body to me is 100% legit wear. The body is recently acquired as is so I don’t know the history on it but you can’t fake that wear.
My two faves, some people have probably seen these before.
"Smokie", the hardtail strat, rebuilt after a house fire,
and "Carlita", my favorite Cabronita, lots of gigs, and a crapping factory nitro finish.
My early 90s squier II Strat. This thing came to me covered in some pretty sweet 90s stickers. What I love about it is that the pickup covers and knobs were once perfectly white which was proven when I took it apart and saw the perfect line between old and new on the pu covers and underneath the knobs. The finish is scratched and dinged throughout but in certain light you can see that a deftones sticker was added before years of playing because there are no pick scratches where that was. Also the neck is not tinted (also evidenced in disassembly), but is genuine aging of the maple. The body is made of plywood, and don’t knock it till you’ve tried it. I got this thing for 50 bucks in Facebook marketplace and put another 150 or so in upgrades and it’s one of my absolute favorite guitars I’ve ever owned.
So I'm not the only guy on TDPRI with a guitar that was in a house fire! Cool.
70s copy... but it sounded great!
