Great skills. Most Gibson fans watching this will have died at the 5:13 mark when they realise this "59" has a scarf joint.

What I learned from that video is that it takes 25 minutes to build a guitar! :D

Great skills! Awesome looking guitar! Anyone know what he used on the body to make it pop like that?

I learned a lot about painting guitars from this guy. He has a great Strat build series.

great programming and a very well equipped workshop.

Great finishing skills too.

I wouldn't mind a CNC for bodies...but I really enjoy neck carving!

I doubt if Gibson had any of this amount of machining available to build their 59 LPs...

Despite the obvious workmanship and CNC skills, where is the nostalgia in this build? :shock:

Give me a real 59 anytime :wink:
When faced with quality, I recognise it every time.

The irony is he could have done WAYYYYY more with the CNC on this build...

lets not forget that if you want absolute accuracy to a design then CNC is the best solution.
If I was interested in a commercial building operation I would absolutely be wanting to do as much a possible on CNC in order to get consistence and repeatability - not to mention speed.

I don't criticise any commercial builder for using the tools that make the most business sense.
