I'm very eager to watch that thread; I hope you post many details and pics... I can not wait to attempt that style of build; I have a mustang/les Paul hybrid in my head that needs to come out...

I hope you mean 13° headstock angle, because a 13° neck angle would be disastrous. :o Most carved top LP-style guitars, or similar, are right around 4° neck angle.

I'm just waiting for some cooler weather to put the last few coats of clear on my TeleMaster project.

Here is the mock-up, and original 52 neck and bridge with a USA Custom ash body. It's received it's butterscotch blonde
finish, but is awaiting clear coats...

I was lead astray to another forum where doods were building Les Pauls, and I saw a few router/planer tricks that are making me want to glue some maple on top of some mahogany... I'm just not too sure about a set neck joint, or the technique and tools to carve the top...

But in a few days when I meet up with Paul, I hope to inspect that Les Paul Jr's neck joint and become inspired...
