    Guitar came today and after picking it up I realized I had been a little mentally slow with the Terada connection. What I really bought is an Ibanez AS100 with a nice quilt top. So far, I really like it!

    Yes, at least the ad said so. Jugding by the pics I'm pretty sure that's correct.

    I don't know much about the ObG brand, beside that they did models with and without FEB and tha the models with FEB are regarded as a little better than the non-FEB models...., but I don't know if this is a 57c model. Ad said "Les Paul Standard".

    I suspect that a lot of you guys are capable of telling me exactly what I've bought.

    The price was OK, a little less of half of what a used LP Traditional fetch these days here in Norway. Got another guitar waiting to be shipped from Japan (the Crews LS-01 mentioned earlier in the thread), so I though "why not?".

    OK, so nibs is exclusive to the RI's?

    Excited to see how the top looks IRL, if it's accetable or a candidate for a refin (like that's gonna happen, huh).

    It was your wine red RI that caught my interest. Luckily I was the only bidder. Pretty sure it would've gone higher if it had the original finish.

    Neck shape should be on the rounder/boulder/bigger side?

    Yes the NIBs are exclusive for RI:s :)seems to be same year also and I also wonder if its realy an refin, but it looks rather minty and in good shape.
    The neck on my is like an regular 50:s neck of an Gibson standard, more like an 59 than an 57.

    I dont know, but suspect, that they did all necks the same and just named the guitars 59 for the tops with flame and 57c for the rest ;)

    Also, only the RI:s where named this way, the rest of their guitars had names corresponding their price.

    another nice thing about them is that they only where in production between 92-94, so you will have an rather unique guitar, ans also lucky to have bought one before the new regulations according rosewood are going into effect.

    The whole CITES thing was helping a lot. I sure hope it's the date of purchase and not shipping date that counts...

    I bought this Edwards tele, E-TE-128M / RE. It's a weird one with a 2 piece neck but that round string tree and a black guard. Is this just a weird mish-mash of parts Edwards put together or is it suppose to be a tribute / replica of some rock star's guitar?

    Their Jeff Beck humbucker tele has a 2 piece neck, so maybe they just took the JB stuff and stuck it on a single coil body.

    Edit - no, I mean 2 piece, no skunk stripe.
