But it's not a real Gibson. I bet the finish never falls off that headstock.

No need to remind him every 6 months.

Yeah, I suspect for anyone able to produce 'craftsman-like' things there's so much more to it than the finished item.

The Workmanship here is absolutely phenomenal Grant. The finish is such high quality, it's mind blowing.

Been after a Lp Jnr for a while and been thinking about doing a build. No where near as technical as this... et hem... bolt on neck. But this is really inspiring to see.

Congrats!
The best things in life are actually really expensive!
