I'll be looking to buy a new guitar in march probably , and I was thinking about a gibson Les paul for a while , but from the information I gathered and the one I played , they look very overpriced . So I'm thinking abotu getting one custom made , but if it's custom , I might as well get something unique .

I really like how heavy guitar resonnate in my hands , it's not really a thing you hear , it's more of a feel thing . So here's my project , to have a super-heavy les paul on steroids .

Classic les paul body , with maybe a more sculpted neck heel to have better acces to higher frets
Not necessarely les paul headstock , if the luthier has his own headstock that would be great .
22 or 24 frets
set neck or maybe neck through
rosewood , bubinga or walnut or somethign along the lines for the body
macassar ebony top ( one with black and red stripes)
ebony fretboard with red sharkfins
don't really know for the neck...
probably gold hardware
don't know for electronics , maybe some custom pickups with coild splitting

I know that a super heavy guitar will be heavy during shows , but I'm in great shape , and it can't be much worse than a double or triple neck guitar , or 10 string bass , right ?

In what price range aproximetaly would that guitar be ? Any comment or suggestion is greatly appreciated .

I saw your future guitar in another thread , looks real nice . Drool
Would he work with woods not on his list , or are they hard to find ? Also , is the list price firm or does he do a reduction when buying a lot of extras ?

Thanks for the answers . I'll definitely email or call him as soon as I have the money , I'd rather give my money to an honest , hardworking guy than to a big company living on its name ( either that or I'd rather get a unique , great looking , great sounding , handmade work of art for the same price Drool )
