Personnal «Les Paul» project

From march 2016 to june 2017, I built a Gibson «Les Paul», mainly a 59’s copy for my own use.
Folks who are following my facebook thread are maybe already aware of this project.
All of this fb thread is now available here on my website and which feature 21 posts and over two hundred eighty pictures featuring the making of that LP. A direct link to reach all of these posts is under the top «Guitars»’s menu item.
I also expect to add other details about that project, like the electronic, guitar spec, and even sound demos of the guitar.
