In addition to the Standard Burst type build, I also did one with different tone woods. I used Redwood for the Top, Spanish Cedar for the Body and Neck and Honduran Rosewood for the fingerboard.

Also this particular guitar is currently for sale. Check out my thread in the Emporium section for more info. :thumb:

Here are a few pics of this unique guitar.

Beautiful work, but aside from a slightly different headstock and cutaway shape, this is replica (copy, what have you) of a 1959 Les Paul.
I see nothing else than Gibson appointments and thinking.
Execution, look, and vibe are spot-on, but it's a Les Paul.

That's a cool piece of rosewood on the redwood model. Normally people try to get the darkest rosewood they can, but I dig that light marbled color.

Yes, that is the point of this guitar. To be a replica without being a true replica, if you can dig what I mean.

My other models are much more outside of the box, semi hollow, non traditional tonewoods etc, but this build is exactly what you said it is. Its true to a '59 Burst in construction and tone and I would stack it up against the best.

Thank you. The redwood topped guitar was kind of an experiment. It turned out amazingly well. At first I couldn't describe the tone of the Redwood topped guitar, but after thinking about it, the tone is right in line with a late 50's LP all mahogany Custom. Just Huge Fat tone for days!!!

Thanks. That is Honduran Rosewood. Its a killer rosewood for fingerboards and under used because of the color in my opinion. I happen to think it fits in well with this guitar.

I think this is fantastic -- pretty much spot-on what I'd want this style of guitar to sound like.
