    Got this a few months back and really love it. Costs almost the same as a new LP, but is completely hand made by Brian Monty...even the neck is hand made. Monster sounding Voodoo pickups to boot and Brian is the nicest guy to deal with. If only I had an amp to play this with now (long story). This bad boy weighs no more than 7lbs I belive.

    Awesome!

    Love that color!

    My Monty '59 Les Paul replica is my one and only, I wish it was that color though..

    It actually is a touch lighter than in the pics. I guess this is a 59' style guitar. I always thought that I liked 60's slim necks, but this is a 50's neck and I will never go back to thin again.

    A nice hefty neck does that to a man!
    Congrats, it looks like a nice build.

    Thanks Brian makes a mean guitar. I am definitely thinking about one of his 335-type guitars.
