Xaviere XV-560 Les Paul Thinline

Xaviere Les Paul thinline

In guitar making, you can endlessly take the same old models and trends and recombine them to do something new. The Xaviere XV-560 is one of these guitars, just a Les Paul-like guitar (with a florentine cutaway), but with a chambered body (mahogany with maple top) and F-holes. The XV-560 is the version with P90s, there is one with humbuckers.

It's not exactly cool - the F-holes don't really fit and Rickenbacker style holes would be probably better, but still it's an interesting guitar, and I'm curious about how it sounds. Xaviere is the guitar brand of, who produce and sell nice gears and electronics; I bought some stuff there - mostly lipstick pickups that fit in a Tele bridge for my last projects - and I'm not unhappy with them.

It's good to show a guitar here that is not over 40 years old, no?
