D L Povey Guitars | My Own Custom Build

This Guitar was designed for my own guitar collection, I wanted a PRS shaped guitar with a Tremolo system but wanted the Les Paul style angled neck, so i opted for the scheller Les Paul tremolo allowing me to do the angled neck join, I also dislike the large neck heel that you get on a PRS, so i designed an ultra easy access neck join.
The colour finish was done 3 times until i was happy with my chosen colour, I finaly decided on the red and black dyed finish on the Quilted Maple top and black elsewhere. As you can see from the pictures this Guitar is truely beautiful.
