I'm probably not going to actually try this but would it be possible to do this to a les paul:

I know that picture was probably photoshopped, but it has inspired me


I suppose you could use a decent les paul copy that has a bolt on neck, like a Vintage V99, remove the neck and bolt on a Strat or Tele neck?

I dunno, maybe it doesen't fit, but it looks pretty funny

Tell me your thoughts on this, whether it can be done, whether you think it's ugly, Etc...

Vintage VS6 (Wine Red)

i think its been done on here before but i cant remember who did it. personally i dont see that point but i wouldnt bother as i love the LP headstocks

the Neck wouldnt fit. Les paul has a much wider neck.
1. You're surfing the internet.
2. You're browsing through the UG forums.
3. You're reading now.
5. You didn't notice that there was no #4.
6. You just checked it.
7. Now you're having a lil smile.

It could be done if you either found a Strat style neck with the EXACT dimensions of the LP neck somewhere, or, you made either the body or the neck specifically to fit the other. Any of those are relatively doable

Warmoth is to only way your gonna find the neck pocket compatability you need. A fender neck isnt gonna drop in any epi or other brand bolt neck LP. And of course there is the scale length issue. I went the other way putting a warmoth conversion 24 3/4 neck on a strat body. I did see a set of plans once for a bolt neck LP body using a fender style neck.

Reminds me of an SG my girlfriend has. I thought it was an Epi for a long time.....Turned out it was a Squier.

My mind was blown.

It's amazing what difference a headstock can make, but that whole guitar looks really ugly. And I LOVE Les Pauls generally.

As Tackleberry mentioned, you will have scale length issues. You might also have neck angle problems. Your best bet would be to make it from scratch. You might need one of those string-retainer bars too since you won't have a tilt-back headstock.

Keep the stock neck and add a pickguard with 3 single-coils, and a top mounted jack.

The 'tarded guitar guy who owns a shop down the road from me did something similar.

EDIT: No offense to the starter of this thread, I'm not saying that doing this is 'tarded.

Hers is red like that. She got it as her first real guitar but then she stopped playing to write and draw instead, she has phases. I'm trying to get her back in to playing because turns out, that guitar is actually better than I would have imagined. Great reviews.

Never seen a Squier SG before.. thats a strange one


Maybe it's some other kind of Squier name... I doubt Fender would have its budget brand making competitor's guitars.

@Fiire: That is truly epic.

Anywho I like the concept. But, yeah, LPs have waaay different dimensions. I think it can be done. Anythings possible.

It's a Squier s-73, they did make them and it is Fender Squire they started in 2002 then discontinued them after a few years.

She also has a Spectra that was only made from 86 to 87 and she barely even plays guitar anymore!
