Hey guys - A good friend of mine, Pavel De La Fuente is making me a guitar in exchange for a Jackson Ampworks NewCastle 2x12 Combo that I made for him. The design is loosely based on a Les Paul. http://www.pavelmi.com Here are the specs: Here is a pic of the body after having the top laminated onto the body. The basic shape has been finalized and the carving of the top has begun. You can see from the pics the location of the controls pickups etc. The quilted maple area of the carved top will be dyed Black Cherry and the center Flame Maple stripe will remain the natural color of the wood. The black pinstripes that border the Flame Maple stripe are made from Ebony. This design mirrors the design of the Jackson Ampworks Cabinets. I will post more pics as this project unfolds!
