Standard Les Pauls are thicker—yours is more like a LP Jr. which would have a different pickup arrangement/type. The body also looks a little more elongated than it should be and the curved areas have a blockiness to them. Knobs aren't correct, String action is way too high, etc. I would hunt down close-up pics of a LPS from all angles so you can get the details.
Cheers for the crits.
I used my Les Paul copy as reference, which the model essentially fits, when I come to making a demo reel I might have a look at the proportions, as I said a while ago this project is essentially finished (was about 6 months ago).
The knobs are a copy of the ones that Ive got on my guitar, and the string height was just that, thats how it came out whan I added them, I could get rid of the blockeyness by adding a secomd smooth poly to the body
Like I said I'll have a look closer to putting a demo reel together.
