Couple of details really stood out for me.  The bolt and bearing to make the selector switch was inspired, especially since the bearing conveys the round trim plate.  The other was the way you positioned the bolts on the head stock to mimic the tuning machine posts.  A lot of people might have overlooked that many/most electric guitars have tuning pegs at a right angle to the tuning machine post.  I also love how you used heat coloring on the sprockets.  

Beyond that, I think it's funny that your total weight is remarkably close to the high end of a real Les Paul!  They're famously heavy.

Should you decide to re-visit a guitar sculpture, you could add fretboard inlays which typically mark frets 3, 5, 7, 9, 12, 15, 17, and 19.  The head stock is cocked back 17 degrees on a Les Paul.  That's a subtle detail that a guitarist would appreciate.

this still for sale?

It was sold. The guitars don't last too long in my posession after I make them lol. 

Thanks Rockstar.esq.

I had thought about the fret inlays but they didnt happen. Perhaps on the next. Also the cocked headstock. 

I do actually plan to make more guitars as soon as my shop time frees up. I really enjoy bringing scrap pieces together to sculpt them. I'd like to do other styles of guitar as well.
