JFP Guitars

This particular instrument is the first instrument we built in 2015 when we started our "guitar building hobby".

It is a handmade Sonoran LP SB Single Cutaway made from a re-cycled Epiphone Les Paul Special body combined with our own handmade neck and using high quality hardware. Our luthier, John Purchase, knew it as "Blackie" and used it as his personal instrument until recently.

This "used" instrument does have a few small signs of wear and, therefore, is being made available at a particularly low price even though it has an excellent tone, sustain and action comparable to our regular brand new offerings.
This clone of a Les Paul Special is a great way for beginners to get started on guitar while getting the feel and tone of a more expensive models!
