kitsch Posted November 21, 2006 Report Share Posted November 21, 2006 Hello people, newbie here, my name is Edo, nice to meet you all. I'm about to order my first custom built guitar: it's going to be a sort of les paul copy, but I was thinking about a bolt on maple neck with ebony fingerboard, just because it's easier to set up/adjust on my own. Do you think is that going to affect the sound in a bad way? The body is going to be in Khoya moghany, and the guitar will have a humbucker on the bridge and a p90 on the neck. Also, I'd rather have the 6 tuning machines on one side, rather than 3+3. How would that work? And finally, as far as the scale, I know les pauls are 24 3/4" and strats are 25,5". I'd like to go somewhere in between, to get a midway string tension. Thoughts? The thing is that I'm a big les paul fan (I have a few great lp's), but I'd like to have a versatile guitar with the look and feel of a les paul, but not necessarily with its fat tone..something between a les paul and a strat with humbuckers. What would you suggest? Peace Edo www.myspace.com/kitschmania www.kitsch-music.com Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
