Herman's Les Paul
This was the first electric experiment. Lovers of acoustic guitars say it is on the dark side of building. But hey, I love acoustics and Les Pauls (also PRS and Fenders). A Les Paul is more difficult to make then other electrics, so why not start there. Into the deep. I followed the original design and has a 1959 shape. The sound is warm and deep with lots of sustain.
