    I love this guitar. Gil Yaron must be a genius. If that's what it takes, Gibson should make them all out of reclaimed lumber.

    This beauty has been residing with me for the last 18 months and I have to say that the builder of these replica's sure knows his shit! It's become my No. 1 single cut LP during that time and has continued to be a pleasure to own and play

    Thanks guys!!! The neck is between a 59 & 60, so it is really comfortable for me to play and I recently put in a set of Vintage Wire Wizzes and it sounds great.

    Hey there, I've been lurking for a while and just found this thread. Lots of great stuff here.

    A few years ago I did a goldtop finish on a kit for a customer. It stuck in my head, so the first of the year I decided to do one for myself.




    Then I decided to try a cherry burst, completed a few weeks ago. It's already found a home.



    Thanks for looking.

    Just received this little darling. She's from Atlanta. All old woods, Braz, Wizz pickups, DJ inlays and guard, Nos black beauty caps, and not too ugly of a top.

    Here's a few more. My phone isn't a great camera and I'm no photographer!

    Not really a replica, but after several builds I wanted what I would have ordered if I could. No, it doesn't have a G name on the headstock either. Came out great...but I just like this shot.

    Heres Frances, the Frankenburst, as has been pictured in another thread. Built by Roman Rist from a stash of old growth wood, and using one of the original Max templates, from when they used to work together. I gave him a '61 SG fretboard, with frets still intact, and the truss rod and holly veneer off a broken '59 LP Special carcass, that was beyond salvaging. PAFs, every screw, piece of metal or piece of plastic is '59 correct, except for the rings, which are Bartlett. I accumulated all the parts over many years from many sources. I did the finish myself. The cherry is currently more brown / ice tea. Plays and sounds amazing. It's my weekly gig guitar.

    A 1998 Orville Les Paul Standard, does this count as a replica? i love this guitar, it's such a joy to play![IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG]
    Here's what I found inside...what a mess!
    [IMG][/IMG]
    [IMG][/IMG]
    I bought NOS CTS pots and used Sprague Orange Drops, used braided shielded cloth wire, it's all nice and clean back to specs. As far as I know Orville didn't use push/pull pots as shown in the previous pics, so whoever did this didn't even have the p/p pot hooked up correctly.

    Woah, just glancing through and saw that fretboard thinking "that doesn't look right" as in...that looks about right.


    Good job.

    Good job.
    I bought a '61 SG neck that had both the headstock and the body broken off. Feels just right, too. It has that weird thing that my '53 conversion has, where the trapezoids have become a little translucent.

    Yeah. '70s Ace. I have about 50 vintage straps, because I finally got to a place where I decided all my guitars need their own dedicated strap.

    Is that it? I never looked too close, always assumed that bit of brown was just from all the cigarettes

    Waited almost 8 years for this one, a replica of a Derrig replica - thanks to Jim at Scumback for making this finally happen!



    Joins my Bobburst (7 year wait there too) as my only two LPs these days - nothing makes that kind of wait worth it, but these come close.

    Wait, you know what happens when you make a copy of a copy, right?



    BTW, my friend owned the Derrig one serial numbers after Slash's. Really not a great guitar. I was shocked. He traded it for a conversion.

    This guitar pretty much steals this show !
    He was a sonic disaster, thinking hours of practice would make up for stock pickups, poorly carved top and The wrong glue !
