Friends don't let friends bore holes through the middle of Les Pauls. Not for smoke bombs, not for laser guns and not for FR's.
And I say that as a fan of Mr Lifeson, probably the largest proponent for FR LPs. They just look wrong to me. But I know some have issues with Bigsbys on LP's, which I think are mahhhhvelous. At least you don't have to bore a hole for one of those.
So I guess that's the long way of saying get one that mounts on existing hardware (no woodworking) or buy an Access, IMO.
