Design

I wanted to build a les paul-like guitar, with mahogany and 2 humbuckers. At the time I was very impressed by PRS guitars too. To create more brightness in the sound I used a maple fretboard. I hope that the longer string length (in comparison with Gibson) helps too.

Impressions

This guitar has a very thick and full sound. Very suitable for a rock kind of sound. The bridge pickup really rocks your head off! The bridge pickup is a lot darker but it is still very usable for a solo sound. The combination with my SEL amp is great! For very clean purposes however, I prefer a stratocaster.
