why are you doing it anyway?

Bear in mind, I'm sure Les Pauls are set necks, so if you make a hash of it, you're stuck.

Somewhere in a concert hall in Sweden, you have just caused Yngwie Malmsteen physical pain. You also caused him to catch on fire.

1958 and 1960 era Les Pauls had that thinner neck. Jimmy Page shimmed down his 59's neck but I wouldn't recommend it.. learn to love your guitar for what it is and if you can't, sell for something that does the job for you.

maybe you can get a luthier to do it? if you want it shaved that bad

Dude, I wouldn't touch that les paul. If you ever want anything other than that paul, youre not selling it for too much more than an epiphone.

^Look in his sig... It IS an Epiphone.

Just do it man. I'm in the process of shaving down my Cort's neck and blending the heel into the body, and it's wonderful. I love the feel of it, and the stability hasn't suffered one iota.

I sanded the paint off the back of my LP's neck and believe it or not just taking off the thick coating I noticed a difference. Not only in the lack of stickiness, but in the width also. As for the heel, no matter what you do frat access will be hindered near the 17th fret. If your looking for easy fret access you shouldn't have gotten a Les Paul.

That completely depends on his playing style. If he wraps his whole hand around the neck, then yeah, he won't ever get to the high frets, but with a less ogre-like grip you'll notice a world of difference if you blend the heel into the cutaway. Why else would Gibson have made the Axcess?
