A Les Paul without inlays?

There aren't standard built ones to my knowledge. Look ito signature models and such.

I think ESP/LTD is your best bet. They don't really use passive or have string-thru's.

[EDIT] ESP Custom Shop you can do all that.

I calculated it for you...at least $5000.

Most of that sounds like a PRS singlecut.

Well, ESP could make you one for $5000, but me or any of the other experinced guitar makers in the Gear Building and Customizing forum can get it done for under $1500,

probably less than $1000.

Drop us a line, we're always open haha.

Carvin CS3 CS4 or CS6 can all be built to meet all of your exact specs plus you get an array of colors to chose from for between $1100-$2000.

That's very true. A bridge alone on my guitar I built cost $100, so having someone who enjoys it can definitely do it.

Materials may be up to $1000 probably, and then they'd probably charge a tad, not too much though.

PRS Singlecuts aren't string-through.. they have a wrap-around tailpiece.. anyway, it's also a good option..*cheers*

yamaha(?) Iwould not have ever thought of them.........

I had a EC-2005, but we couldn't get the intonation perfect on it

and I didn't care for the cross bones graphic on the headstock

http://www.espguitars.com/esp2005/guitars_anniversary.htm

pups were kinda bitey

and the controls were set up perfect,

just like the several Vipers I have (had) just a little to far to reach when sitting

I'll find something sooner or later

thanks again

The AES920 is a good guitar - definitely better than any Ltd I have encountered. The strings don't go through the body though if I remember correctly. In fact, I can't think of any LP that would have a string-through-body construction, so I'd just forget about that if I was you...
It doesn't have an ebony board either.

Where do you live? If you're in Europe, a Framus Panthera Custom might be an option. It does not have a set neck, but it has the ebony board and is LP-ish.

When I read the specs PRS also sprung into my mind.

Wraparound bridges are better for sustain and dynamic reaction than tune-o-matic and string-through anyway. The only advantage a string-through and tune-o-matic combination has is it'll be easier to get to intonate properly, but some wraparound bridges are taking steps to fix that anyway.


But yeah, PRS Singlecut seems to be what you want, OP.

Alternatively, you could consider a custom build from a local luthier or you could place an order with Warmoth if you're comfortable with basic electronics and guitar maintenance yourself. Then you can have exactly what you want except for the setneck, but frankly a good bolt-on join is better than a setneck anyway.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.

yeah, although PRS also sells wrap-around tailpieces where you can intonate the strings individually.. and i think schaller also has bridges like that..

anyway, after much research, here's another guitar i found.. it's Cort.. i think they're made in korea..

Cort EVL- Z6
