The
Story Behind the Guitar


This Epiphone Les Paul Standard with Heritage Cherry Sunburst
finish was brand new when it suffered a cracked neck in a shipping mishap. The
crack ran from the nut down both sides of the neck a few inches. It was a tight
crack with no wood loss. I restored the neck to like new condition by injecting
hot hide glue and clamping overnight. I filled and sanded the repaired area and
sprayed it with tinted nitrocellulose lacquer followed by a couple of coats of
clear nitrocellulose. The repaired area was sanded and polished to match the
rest of the neck. You can see the crack line, but there is no indentation in
the finish. In short, you can see it, but you can’t feel it. I opted to try to
match the original finish on the neck rather than obscure the crack lines with
a darker color.



Following the repair I performed a complete setup,
which included:


Adjusting the nut slots to achieve proper distance between string
and fretAdjusting bridge heightSetting intonation by adjusting individual string saddlesAdjusting neck relief


This is a player’s guitar. The neck is straight, the
action is low, relief is minimal, and there is no fret buzz anywhere on the
fretboard. It plays like velvet. The frets are new. The Alnico humbuckers have
a lot of output. Protective plastic is still on the pickups and the pickguard.



You can find the specs for this guitar at the Epiphone
web site.



You can spend $2,000 on a Gibson LP Standard, or you
can buy a new Epipho
