    I have exactly what I want right now. I have the perfect sounding and playing les pauls. Some look weird, but their sounds and playability fit my bills perfectly. I do want to build me some more, just for the 'fun' of it...

    OK. Here's what's lined up. They all feature a 17pcs neck, maple top on korina, ebony board (24.75'', 22 fret, maple binding, compound radius, jumbo jescar frets) and a Graphtech Tune O matic bridge (best one on the market right now):

    * 1959 burst style, trapezoid inlay. SD Antiquity PAFs,
    * Charcoal burst, MOP Block inlay, SD JB/Jazz Antiquity set (or something like that, concept set perhaps?)
    * Magenta/purple burst, mudflap stripper girl inlay, Lundgren The One Set
    * Transparent white, Tree of Life inlay, Lundgren PAF style pickups
    * Purple blackburst, Star Trek inlay, BKP pickups (cant remember which)
    * Lilac purpleburst, star trek inlay, BKP pickups (can't remember which)
    * Modern Stork LP: Quilt maple top, quilt maple back, black korina core, chambered, F holes, gold hardware, humbucker in the bridge, minihumbucker in middle and neck, fading Stork inlay.
    * TelePaul (roasted ash carved front, roasted maple neck, olivewood board with abalone blocks, butterscotch color, with walnut inlaid pickguard, tele pickups, tele bridge)
    * StratPaul (roasted ash carved front, roasted maple neck, olivewood board with abalone blocks, daphne blue color with maple inlaid pickguard, strat pickups, strat bridge)
    * TelePaul (roasted ash carved front, multiply roasted maple neck, olivewood board with abalone blocks, transparent pink/purple paisley finish, JB/Jazz direct mounted, Hipshot hardtail)

    These 10 will completely take over my entire LP collection and I'll sell off the whatever I don't use.

    Oh, and that StratPaul? I might just go with an HSH set after all. I'll make the inlaid PG in such a way that I can take out the SSS maple inlaid pickguard and replace it with an HSH version. will be a it more work, but I think it will be worth it regardless.

    I'll start building again in Q2 if all goes according to plan. Covid has to go, then I have to fix my own mental health and then I can work again.

      Not for those specific guitars, but for what I have for myself.

        Although, I'd probably be happy with any PGM/FRM if it were left handed.
        I know someone who can make it

          A few things left that still make me sweat when I see them

          CS 1964 Gibson SG
          R7 Goldtop
          Byrdland but more likely one of the ES-275 Thinlines with a trapeze tail (or a Bigsby)
          '59 -61 Melody Maker D (singlecut)
          Rick Nielsen sig Les Paul
          Rick Nielsen Hamer Futura or a Carlino RN Sig Explorer

            I'm weighing up the costs of a prototype using a Paul Stanley Mikro for the moment. I think anything else will be out of my price range for a while.
