It sounds excellent in that video you posted. What pickups did you use, Massimo?

Thank you Woden I've always been in love with the Les Paul design, I believe it's the queen of guitars! :)

Pickups are Seymour Duncan Jazz at the neck and JB at the bridge. I like how they sound but one day I would like to try some handwound pickup or PAF replica...

For my personal taste the fretboard inlay is a bit too much, but I take my hat to that impressive craftsmanship. Great sound. :thumb:

 

Thanks! As I said before, this guitar was built as a sum of everything I've learnt in three years of guitar building, so I wanted to do a full inlay on the fretboard and on the headstock. I felt in love with inlays admiring Larry Robinsons' masterpieces, so this is a kind of tribute to his style

I agree that the inlay is a bit much when seen on the guitar, but man is this just soo beautiful!!

Makes me really want to try inlaying something more complex than a star (that's the most adventurous I got so far) but seriously cannot imagine the amount of precision and patience that such a design would require. Congrats!

... which seems to be a considerable amount. ;)

Thank you! If you haven't read it yet, I suggest you "The art of inlay" by Larry Robinson. It's a small book, but it covers the technique very well. He made some dvds too, but I haven't seen them.

 My favorite part is the serrated edges of the leaf inlays.  

Thank you! That part was really a PITA! :D but I think that they make the leaves more real!

Totally. The last couple of months have been some high-level competition, so I'm glad that you re-entered this month. It's a guitar that you can be extremely proud of; people who've been building for many many years would have trouble pulling off something like your Les Paul.

Congratulations!

Thank you @Prostheta, your words make me proud! And I would like to compliment @KempGuitars, @Osorio and @Andyjr1515 on their amazing buildings!
