I just can't work out how the grain patterns never seem to match up.


Well, I explained it. You said I was wrong but, well, I'm not so I don't know what else to tell you.

The difference in thickness is about 8-10mm from the highest point (under the bridge) to the edge. More than enough to be well into different patterns, when you think the outer edges of each half were as much as 20mm apart when they were part of the same piece.

You'll also note that book matching on flat tops tends to match very well as do drop tops and veneered tops.
I'm not drunk, you're blurry.

The title certainly implies "Les Paul", but there has been some really nice non-LP photos posted, so here's a couple more.

Both built in the Nashville Custom Shop.....
