Blank canvas awaiting your creative touches :)
Great mod platform.

Luthier- built Les Paul Junior.
Ultralight weight "Indonesian Mahogany" weighing in at 5.5 pounds.
Custom wound J.S. Moore unorganized AlNiCo 5 P-90.
It's acoustic sound is incredibly loud and resonant.
The neck is about the most perfect shape, slightly more meat than a Gibson 30/60 but thinner than a fat neck.

It's in need of final finish work and I have valued it accordingly.
If it was 100% finished I'd be pricing it closer to $800.

It could use a final setup but is totally playable now could be left as-is in a natrual *raw* form.

If you wanted to get it to showroom status:

It's sealed. Needs some leveling/ sanding. Then all topcoat/ finishing.

There's a ding in the edge that could use to be filled.

There's a normal work gap on a seam between the body and neck heel that could use to be filled prior to finishing.

The intonation could use some final setup. Right now it intonates a bit flat as you move up the neck. An adjustable tailpiece would help. (Or, if you felt strongly about a fixed tailpiece you could slightly file back the tailpiece or at-most reset the bridge position).

The studs for the tailpiece should be glued/ secured into the body.

Could use a headstock laminate or paint to cover the face. It's raw right now waiting for your creative input ;)

Ask any further questions.
I'm not desperate to sell, and if I don't get any bites I'll probably finish it myself when I find the time ;)
