Steampunk Les Paul Guitar by JohnMon Steampunk Les Paul Guitar by JohnMon
I'm a fan of steampunk guitars and have already made one out of my Dean ML. However, in this case I think have created the world's first Steampunk Gibson Les Paul which I'm quite excited about!

This guitar is now being used in my steampunk band "The Cog is Dead"

How do you get past the 17th with that meter there?

Really? I think if I was playing with any sort of speed that would piss me off lol.

I guess it all depends on playing style. I'm sure it would get in the way at times, but I play more rhythm than lead so it hasn't been much of a problem for me. :)

The dial must get in the way.

Actually it's not too bad. I suppose it only gets in the way slightly if I'm playing really high notes, but I can still maneuver my hand around it.

Woooow.. dude you have to see my steampunk strat. I think you'll like it :D I bet that baby plays like a charm though, aside from weighing fifteen tons....haha, the reason I chose a strat body for my guitar was because they dont already weigh a ton and a little more weight doesnt seem to be a big deal, however this is amazing!! you did a damn good job man. Keep it up :D shred on!

JohnMon Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2011
Thanks! Your strat looks fantastic! I love the clocks and the nozzles for knobs. The gears and rivets are very nice and the patina looks great. Yeah, Les Pauls are pretty heavy, but I didn't add much to this one other than paint, some tacks and a pressure gauge. And yeah, it plays beautifully. :)

The simplicity and sleakness of a les Paul is sometimes rather difficult to transfer into a steampunk style...you did an amazing job though. I tried to place objects in places where they wouldnt effect the playability and I can definitely see you did the same :) it absolutely screams steampunk and will definitely turn alot of heads...I know alot of designers whom would be very afraid to even scratch a les Paul..but I can honestly say that you did an amazing job making yours steampunk..keep up the good work and rock on!
