I was looking over used guitars on the Guitar Center website and saw a Japanese Les Paul copy talked about in here once in a while. I remember seeing one in a local pawn shop here in Maine when I was a young 16 yr old in the mid 80s. I saw it selling for $199 with hard case, don’t know if original case or not, so I said what the heck. If you don’t know me I do some luthier work so this may be a fun resto. Someone already replaced the pickups and tuners ... to what, who the heck knows. The guitar ad only had 2 pictures, these are they. I searched Reverb and saw three listed for $400 and up and surprised because usually a bolt on goes for cheaps. Looks like a piece of binding missing on the back side at the neck joint plus plenty of dings and chips. I’m hoping for a neat fun guitar with 40 yrs of relic. The headstock has chips and dents, doesn’t look like any cracks etc. Questions I have are easy ones like .... is the truss rod still trussin’ and do I need to do a refret etc. Anyway, when it arrives I’ll post up the photos and what needs to be done.
