I have heard of him. he's very good. Can you check with him if he can make an Ibanez JEM replacement neck (no inlays at all) with a maple top as well. I need a backup for my guitar incase my neck breaks....its developed some cracks already. Also ask him how much it would cost and the time it would take to make it.
Good luck on the LP. Post pics when you get it. I had an Epiphone Les Paul Custom for sale...for 25k but then again....your's are with EMG 81/85 Actives!! I have those on my Gibson Les Paul Standard.
