^You've got some beautiful guitars. Especially those Gibsons. I'm not a huge fan of the way PRS guitars play...but they sure are a treat for the eyes.

A lot of people say the same thing..They don't feel right to some...and some people hate the pups...to each his own, of course. I've been crazy about them since I first played one in the 90s.

Thanks, bro.
I never gave any thought to blue guitars until I saw/played this one. It's like a Porsche, cool, powerful and fast.

You hand built the Gold Top? Impressive.

How long did it take?
Is it a set neck? Long tenon or....?

What kind of wood is the body?

What kind of pattern did you use to cut the body? The cutaway looks like an epiphone.What's the body made of?

How hard was laying out the fretboard and sawing the fret slots? That seems pretty tricky.
How did you fret it? hammer or press? You did the inlay?..Are they MOP or abalone?

How hard was it to paint?

I don't do any refinishing or painting because I don't have a booth...and honestly I've never really been interested in that. I will occasionally shoot a maple fretboard with nitro if the owner wants it after a refret. I just use aerosol, though. I don't have a compressor or airbrush.

Tell me about installing the binding on the neck and body...I've restored a number of guitars that were damaged in hurricane Katrina and I learned to really enjoy installing binding...The tricky part is heating it up in order to make the bends...I use a pot of hot water.

I have a lot of pictures of guitar repairs I've done and some pics of my shop...I'll look around and see if I can get them organized and maybe post them ....somewhere.....

Love to see your shop.Got any pictures?

okay, woah, slow down buster. im no genious, i didn't do it alone. the body was copy carved from an eppiphone plus top body, then modified to hold the neck (which is bolted on) and sanded, then the prong-thing on it was shortened because my hands arent really huge but there really wide and it gets in the way sometimes. i just prefer it short. the body is solid mahogany, neck is a bolt-on i got from a friend, who builds guitar parts all the time. it came already fretted and everything, so sorry, i dont know much about it. just it fits, and it's smooth like butta. the paint job was supposedly fairly simple, my freind and i just sprayed the damn thing =P (but he did most of the work xD) on the back was harder tho because we stained it instead of painting. the bridge pickup came off of a gibson studio flying V and the neck pickup is an up-side down eppiphone casino bridge pickup. i was a little iffy about flipping it but i was assured by many people that cassino bridge pickups go very nicely on 'pauls. the binding was a pain in the ass because i had no idea what i was doing. i almost destroyed the paint job twice before hiring a pro to do it x.x (get this: super glue doesnt work, who woulda thought?) the neck and head arent painted at all, and the inlays are only fake pearl, but what matters is what it sounds like, not how much money you spend on it. soon ill probably mount a Korg Kaoss pad on it (a real one, not the fave brightly coloured guitar versions) so i can use a built-in pre-dist. loopstaion, right beside the bridge. its gonna be epic, and its not even finished =D

edit: oh yah almost forgot, all the other hardware came off of a eppiphone les paul 100, and the tuners are custom from some custom guitar part store, my friend gave them to me for christmas ^^

Great looking guitar...Sorry for all the questions...I get excited...heh heh...
It looks like a million bucks...nice work.

On that neck pup when you say "upside down", does that mean you took the magnet off and flipped it? Do I understand right?...

EDIT..I read more carefully and see you flipped the magnet...Sorry...my mistake.
