There is something special about the late 1950's Les Paul guitars built with curly maple tops and a classic cherry sunburst. It was something worth aspiring to for quite some time and eventually, a particular piece of maple caught my eye. I didn't want to copy each and every detail of a Gibson but instead used those amazing guitars as inspiration for something to call my own. I went through all my fingerboard blanks, neck blanks and mahogany body blanks to combine with that particular maple top and just seemed to cry out for P-90's instead of humbuckers and as usual I chose Lollar pickups. Instead of a shorter 24.625" scale length, this was built with 25.5" scale reminiscent of the body style which guided much of the BB-2 design.
