Can you say ooooops? This fellow lost his brakes and came strolling into our lot looking for a "soft landing" It was funny as hell. Even after scrubbing off some speed (by hitting the goose neck trailer) he managed to slide that box truck a good 3 feet.

Either way, rubbish...

Zee Les Paul is all but done! Just need to make sure of the string spacing before I file the grooves in the nut, but I'll be playing it tonight!

Now it's done. Thought I think I wired it slightly wrong - again. I thought I took better pix on the final wiring. Not! Minor detail for the moment. I was pretty sure I had volume control for both pickups in the middle position a couple of months ago.

It's tuned and plays! I have a little work in setting up the action again and a little clean up on the nut.
