Hello everybody, Im new at this forum and i thought i would share my first LP build with you, I bought a Gibson black back beauty blueprint that is my main influense on this build but with some modifications. This will probably look more like an Esp eclipse when it's done, anyway som specs, the guitarbody is made from mahogny and the top is flamed maple. The neck is going to be maple as well. tremolo will be original floyd rose and seymour duncan black winter set for pickups. Also made my own inlays for this project, turned out quite nice. well what would a build thread be without some pictures?
I have always wanted a LP just never wanted to shell out the kind of cash to get a nice one. So why not do a kit build? Enter Fast Guitars. Kevin at Fast Guitars builds very high quality kits for a very reasonable price. You can check out his website here http://www.fastguitars.com I was ecstatic when I was given the chance to review a Standard Kit Carved Top SC from Fast Guitars. Kevin and I shot some emails back and forth then decided on the final specs. Here are some shots as it was being built at the Fast shop.
Well, as some of you may have noticed is that I took quiet the internet break, and in the 2 weeks I've pumped up almsot two guitars, this is one of them. The other (superstrat) just needs the bridge posts and tuners drilled, which I'll do eventually. The camera was gone for most of the time, so I was only able to snap these pics now, and one with an iphone a bit back.
