Hey guys, If your interested in following this build go to "My Les Paul.com.
As this is my main site for recearch and instruction from other members on these builds.
Posting on two forums is a pain in the butt so click on the link below. Crying or Very sad

nah, ..... going to two forums is also a PIA.

Sorry ...... but if we're not good enough for it I'm not interested.
Just another nail in the RP coffin.

It's a lot easire that posting picts and following up on comments on two forums. I'm a member of at least five forums. Maybe you need to get out a little more. LOL
It really has nothing to do with "you're not good enough". I dont have time to basicly run two threads on the same subject. You know.... the ''It's not you, it's me'' kinda thing. Thanks for the intrest on my first build.

Aw, what a pity. I really enjoyed watching the recent build come together. I'm not enough into making guitars to add more sites to my current trapline, but I really enjoy watching what you and Zlurgh have showed on this site. If you change your mind, I'll be here. Smile

I get out plenty and have enough sites to take up my time. And no, it's not that hard to post pics and such on multiple sites. Once you get the pics and the comments written for one site you just copy and paste but whatever makes you happy mang.

Dobro stated it exactly right. To be honest, I'm not THAT interested in anyones' builds.
What I am interested in is things fellow RP'ers do and would also follow threads about how you put up siding on your house or bought a new set of tires.

Hopefully we'll still see ya' around here occassionally.

I'd have to side with RP... I'm active on 3 forums and getting caught on one thread on another forum means less attention on the others...

as I actually try to spend more time making music than surfing all the available forums out there
my main complaint with many of the forums is unless you register, access is limited, which often times I'm simply chasing down info

just cuz I want info on a Kirby vacuum cleaner... doesn't mean I'm shopping to buy one. If there's enough interest, I'll sign up, but otherwise

I'd rather be playing

Good luck on the next LP! and ...uh... be sure an let us know how the first one finally turns out Very Happy

you can be mad at me if ya' want but I'm interested in things RP'er do ...... that's really all. Stuff that gets posted at RP I look at ... whether it's drywall or guitars.
Not posted here? I just don't have time to be interested.
I simply stated that.

The neck is roughed out and I installed the truss rod and glued in the filler strip.

People that sit around and wait for something to happen at this shithole obviously have enough time to check out other boards. I think they just hate you.
