I've got a Les Paul shaped body, that i've had for about a year and half now that i've sanded down, but just never got round to buying any other parts for. But recently i've finally come up with a plan for it.


Neck: I was planning on using a Fender style strat neck, but i've got doubts about the neck size fitting in the les paul size neck pocket without too much work. If the sizes aren't right or attainable i'll drop back and use a normal les paul style.

Bridge: A Bigsby B5 Telecaster Conversion kit. I can install this bridge, and the plate can cover the existing humbucker hole, in which a single tele coil can sit because it's screwed to the plate rather than the body.

Neck Pick-Up: Simple, just a nice wide P-90 screwed directly into the body over the existing hole.

Electrics: EXP Clapton Warm Tone Push Pull, and a QDD Distortion Driver.


Can anyone see any problems with this?

If the LP body is an Arch/Carved-Top, the B5 Bigsby Tele won't fit it.

I don't think a lot of black people play guitar anymore.

Yeah, I thought abot that, but i wasn't too sure.
I've seen a few Les Paul body's that are flat, so do you think I could sand it down to flat?


You could, but why would you want to? carved tops look so much nicer.

True.

You couldn't sand it down as the neck pocket has been designed to be used at that angle that the bridge will be set at on a Arch-Top.
If you did, you'd be doing some mass amount's of work.
