Give me your opinions

Recommended Posts

Alright, here's the deal. I'm going to attempt to make a Les Paul. Unfortuantley, I'm not able to make the beautiful carved top that is a signature look for the LP.

So, to compensate, I'm trying to decide if it would look cooler to stain a piece of flame or quilted maple to use as the front and back of the guitar.

Since this is my first from-scratch build, I'd love to hear opinions and suggestions from you guys. I'm thinking of staining it with an ebony stain and lightly sanding it afterwards to get some good defintion of color in the wood grain.

Anyway, enough from me. Let me hear your thoughts!

I like goncalo alves top and back

try a pau ferro fretboard

Really? Maybe you'd like to share with the group your experiences, good and bad, with Goncalo Alves and Pau Ferro.

Were they easy to 'work'?

Hard or easy on your tools and bits?

So how do they sound?
