Feast Your Eyes On The Lego Les Paul
We’d Buy It… Probably
We thought we’ve seen it all when we featured a guy who made a working electric guitar using 36 packs of ramen noodles. So imagine our surprise when we came across builder morimorilego‘s wicked creation – a 1:1 scale build Lego Les Paul. Its body features red, orange and yellow tile and brick, with the pickguard in white.
It’s not just highly detailed, its construction is pretty complex too. And it made us wonder just how long this took to complete from the planning to the finishing touches.
The Brothers Brick took a closer look at this masterpiece and wrote, “The headstock has just the right shaping thanks to a variety of cheese slopes. The tuning keys make use of Technic pins and 2×2 round plate, but I’m not sure those strings are LEGO elements. 1×1 upright clip plates keep them aligned nicely, and 1×6 tiles for the frets are just the right choice.”
They added, “Looking at the back of the headstock, you can see more Technic construction to mimic the real-world shaping. The tuning keys might not adjust the string tension in reality, but they sure look like they would really like to. The use of curved slopes makes the back of the neck look solid and functional, too.”
If somehow LEGO and Gibson Guitars decide to team up and make something like this, it’s definitely gonna be a hit.
