A place to post mystery Les Paul copy guitars of unknown origin, for reference purposes. There are isolated threads like this almost every day. I thought if most were grouped together, it might serve users down the road with similar questions without having to search in vain. Most mystery examples will probably date from the late 60's to mid 70's when blank headstock examples were most common. There were so many obscure 70's guitar badge names, that establishing a manufacturer is going to be the best you can hope for, in some cases. Bolt on neck examples will almost always have "made in Japan" engraved on the neck plate, if produced there. Here are a few reported badge names from more prolific manufacturers: Matsumoku reportedly produced Arai, Aria, Aria Pro II, Aria Diamond, Apollo, Arita, Barclay, Burny, Capri, Columbus, Conrad, Cortez, Country, Cutler, Dia, Domino, Electra, Epiphone, Granada, Greco, Hi Lo, Howard, Ibanez, Lindberg, Lyle, Luxor, Maxitone, Mayfair, Memphis, Montclair, Pan, Pearl, Raven, Stewart, Tempo, Univox ,Vantage, Ventura, Vision, Volhox, Washburn, Westbury, Westminster, Westone and later Fernandes-Burny (1984 ~ 1987) LP examples. Guyatone badges include Barclay, Broadway, Coronado, Crestwood, Futurama, Howard, Hi-Lo, Ibanez, Ideal, Imperial, Johnny Guitar, Kent, Kingston, Lafayette, Marco Polo, Montclair, Omega, Orpheus, Prestige, Royalist, Saturn, Silhouette, Silvertone, Suzuki, Vernon, Winston and Zenta Dyna Gakki badges include JooDee, some Ibanez, Yamaha, Yamaki and later Fernandes-Burny (1987 ~ 1998) LP examples. If you don't find your guitar already posted in this thread, a pic of the headstock front and back (unless it bears the name of a major US manufacturer), body front and back and most important ... a control cavity pic with the rear cover removed, are required in order to help identify a mystery Les Paul copy brand. Please do not ask members to guess what your guitar is without posting pics first ! You need 10 MLP posts in order to post pics using the MLP server, IIRC but you can always post pics using a 3rd party photo hosting site like photobucket or Flick'r. Some tips on how to do this are posted here: http://www.mylespaul.com/forums/other-single-cuts/167868-_mij__faq_-_links-4.html#post6069278 (please note FLick'r has changed, so some steps will have changed from those listed in the FAQ.) I've posted a few 70's no name headstock inlays below as examples.
