D L Povey Guitars | Les Paul style custom guitar

This Guitar was designed for a customer who was a big Rush fan and wanted a Les Paul Styled guitar similair to that of Alex Lifesons Gibson. This build needed to have a tremolo and an easy access neck join.
He also asked me to include a copy of Alex Lifesons Signature on the machine head and Rush written on the rear. After reaching to an agreed constrution of method of the guitar I began the build. The customer was invited to view his guitar at completion of each stage to see if he was happy with the progress and to discuss the next stage.

As you can see from the photos the guitar turned out really well and the customer stated that it was much better than he had imagined it.
