    Second Build - LP1ss

    Started my second build after managing to get hold of an old LP1ss kit which had been collecting dust at the back of some ones cupboard. Plan is to tru-oil the spalted maple, and use Dingotone Nullabor Ochre on the back of the body. I will possibly upgrade the pickups at a later date.

    So far have given a few coats of TO and given a light sand. I filled a couple of holes on the maple veneer with CA glue.

    I love the spalted top. Also the headstock. LP's are my favorite kits, very sad they're not available from PB anymore. Do you intend to screw the neck or will you dowel and glue it?
    I don't know what I'm doing but I hope I will end up with a guitar

    LP's are my favorite also. I have 3 which are my main guitars. I will screw the neck on (I know it is not true LP style) as I have some experience with this - maybe at a later date I will try a glued neck

    I have been adding a few more coats of tru-oil to the maple veneer. Also added the DT Nullarbor Ochre to the back and sides. Now thinking about the shape I want for the headstock.

    Very pretty. I've built 2 LP kits in the past but sadly never built one for myself. Was one of those gonna-get-around-to-it things that kept get pushed back. Maybe I'll get some serious hardware one day and build one from a solid block of timber.

    But I digress. Looking forward to seeing how this one turns out. I'm jealous.

    I have cut and shaped the headstock. I wanted it to be different to the traditional LP open book style.

    Nice interesting shape.

    That G tuner will be quite close to the end.
