    18k les paul standard copy from peter pereira

    yayyyyyyyyy!!!! i finally got my les paul standard copy [actually slash signature les paul] from peter pereira - the total cost was believe it or not abt Rs 18000

    basically i got the original gibson LP parts & gave it to john pereira & he put it all together - the result is just freakin awsome!!!!! see the pics - will try to post some sound clips in couple o days

    for those who r interested this is the cost breakup + where i got the material:

    gibson les paul tune-o-matic bridge - 2325 [furtados]
    nickel plated brass stopbar tailpiece - 800 [albertos]
    gibson les paul gold top hat knobs - 675 [furtados]
    3 way switch - 300 - [albertos]
    gotoh keys - 3000 [peter pereira]
    gibson les paul 500k pots - 1000 [imported]
    luthiers making charges incl padded case - 10000 - [peter pereira]

    these r the specs:

    body - mahogany back with maple top
    neck - mahogany
    fingerboard - rosewood
    inlays - silver acrylic rectangle [i didnt want trapezoid]
    alnico humbuckers [peter pereira] - he can give u seymour duncan for abt 5k
    d'addario ultra slinky strings
    color - desert burst
    + of course std lp specs
    - 22 frets - he can give u 24 frets if u want
    - carved body
    - 24 3/4 scale length
    - angled head
    - bonded neck

    contact nos for those who r interested:

    peter pereira 91 22 25453403 [ask for john]
    alberto 91 22 2888 1523
    furtados 91 22 2201 3105
    bhargavas 91 22 2201 2626

    the only catch is he has got a long waiting list - so if u can afford to wait about a year - u can get a freakin awsome gat for like an unbelievable price - if u want it faster the price goes up

    trust me this gat beats the crap out of any yamaha/epiphone/ibanez that will cost u 40k or more - the fretboard is like silk and the finish is just perfect

    i will post sound clips soon
