I'm going to be building a few LP's and LP Specials (hobby), and a friend was saying that he wished that there was a LP with a Fender (long) scale. I'm thinking of doing a LP Special with an Alnico pup in the neck, and possibly a coil tap or out of phase switch for a thinner sound, but besides that i've always considered the LP Special to be about perfect. I do like the feel of ebony boards, also, like on LP Customs. Other than that, i like both models as is . Perhaps some other wood combinations would dleiver some tonal magic (i.e. Walnut top or back)? Any ideas? i would be very interested in any new ideas, or a combination of old ideas not tried before.
