This model is designed to give a vintage 1959 sound and feel at a reasonable price. All specs and construction techniques which contribute to a 1959 sound were used to build this guitar. The major differences in this model and an original 1959 model are only cosmetic. I named this guitar the 'Extreme' because it is thinner than the original 1959 model. Although initially shocking to most vintage guitar fans, most of them are more shocked at how great this guitar sounds. I have sold most of these to players who own original 1959 Les Pauls.

The body and neck are made of 100 year old Honduras mahogany. The fretboard is 100 year old Brazilian rosewood. The top is highly figured 60 year old curly maple.

Grover tuners, Sheptone/Max '59 style PAFs, lightweight Nickel Stop tailpiece, nickel ABR-1 bridge, CTS pots.

Weight is approximately 7 lbs 11 oz

This guitar is completely hand built by me. No CNC machinery.
