Well, first off, sorry I don't have images I took before it was done, I'm just using the stock images from when I bought it.






I had a host of problems once the floyd was on and trying to keep the action as low as possible & being able to have enough pull on it so I could get a good pitch up so I left the floyd slightly off-level and the action is perfect.


Locking nut is one of the Wonderbar locking nuts from Washburn I think, I had to get this seperate as I already had a floyd unit before I thought of putting it on an LP and you need the R4 nut I believe, I had an R2 and it didn't fit.




Routing is a little sloppy and I had to make the spring cavity angled so the springs wouldn't catch on the wood.
So instead of a flat cavity of ----- I had to angle it with a slight dip as it go to the trem block.

People complain about the sustain being lost, I haven't lost any at all really.
The bridge & neck pups are being replaced anyways, some of Cord's pups I reckon.

I just wanted something different to what all these people are getting around me.
Also Neil Schon is one of my guitar idols & I've got a Fernandes sustainer unit to fit to another Les Paul when I get it & another FR Unit.

yeh but the LTD series are flattops not carved as in the Les Paul.

Good job though looks nice and it seems you could clean it up at a later date if needed.

1, It's ****ing hideous cause it's a flat top, this isn't a fully arch top but it's get more arch than that of a Junior or Special, but not at much as a standard ect. which is why i'm not to happy with this, I'll get a few arch top ones and do the work to them.
2, It's Kirk's, bad enough.
3, Wtf, skeleton inlats :/
4, I don't like ESP/LTD really.
I'm not as such a beginner, but to the whole idea of custom work other than refinishing, I am really, I've only really repaired or done set-ups for people, truss rod work, headstock repairs ect.

Yeah I will be tidying it up to, especially where the old stop tail piece went, I've filled the holes with Dowl ect and painted it and the trem cavity.

I think you did a good job, but I would highly advise putting a back plate on as you're routing job looks rough.
#16
How did you do the route job on a carved top? and does it hurt that the floyd is flat? I mean i figure if the action is high enough it wont bother but im still a little messed up on all the specifics

Neal Schon is the shiznit...have you heard I on U?

Now you need to put a FR on the acoustic in the background

I could do it actually, now I know the specifics and sizes ect.
I'd need a solid block of wood going through the centre top to bottom & side to side though, which really, would give no acoustic properties in the end.

I'm planning on fitting one to a semi-acoustic/Electric Spanish style guitar soon too.

Nice... I think. Actually I often want a trem on my acoustic and I was thinking of getting a bigsby. I want to see if an FR is possible.

Nice job!

You could probably sand around the cavity to smooth the sides out. make it look a bit prettier.

Didnt Epiphone make a LP with a locking trem on it? or what?

Good, so im not mad.

It would be a good muck about guitar I guess, the matt black is easy enough to change.

Congrats TS again. Good job!
