    Anybody know how large the chambers are on a late 90s Les Paul Standard DC?

    I was wondering if it's possible to add an F hole to the top half like on a Hamer Artist.

    If you hate the guitar enough to do that to it, just sell it for half its value instead of making it worth half its value.

    i would not do it. for one, it won't change the tone much, and, as has been stated, it'll wreck its value.

    just buy another Hamer! :)

    Yikes!
    I was only thinking about it on a boring Sunday morning.

    The Artist in the pic was mine but I sold it a couple of months ago.
    I currently have another Aritst.

    I currently have three Les Paul DCs and thought it would be cool to have one with an F hole.
    Not doing any cutting today and I'll probably forget I even thought about it by tomorrow.
