My good buddy Max sent down for me to put through her paces, a new guitar he is building under his name. It's kind of a cross between a Les Paul Special and a Les Paul Standard. It's got a carved maple top, but no binding. It's got dot markers instead of the usual trapezoids, and its slightly thinner than a Les Paul Standard. He used 80 year old mahogany on this beauty, and the sound is unbelievable.
