58 Les Paul

Recommended Posts

The one I'm working on now, based on the plans above, is already over 6 pounds just the body and neck without fretboard, hardware, pups, etc. It has a carved curly maple top and a 1/4" curly maple back. The rest is mahogany as is the neck.

How thick is the maple?  You've saved a 1/4" of thickness, which will account for some weight, but that must have been a nice light bit of mahogany to start with.

Maple? what maple? :D I was planning on doing a solid finish from the start, and I wanted a fairly mellow town, so I went with a full mahogany body and neck, no maple whatsoever. The fretboard is ebony, but that accounts for very little of the weight. It's a pretty bluesy guitar; it's got the good 'ol Seymour Duncan Jazz/JB combo.
