Hi all, first post here. I'm starting to try to get back into playing more often, after about a five year hiatus preceded by a decade of playing mostly Strats. I have fond memories of the second guitar I ever owned (either a 78 or 87) Les Paul Custom. I've tried to catch that magic before a couple times before with a late 90s LP Classic and Vintage V. I've also just recently purchased a mid 80s tokai-built Grandy Les Paul Custom. It's nice but still feels like its missing something, as with the other Gibsons I've owned since the LP Custom. I believe that missing ingredient is an ebony fretboard with fret edge binding. What all vintage MIJ LP copies came with a real ebony fretboard, fred-edge binding, and at least a mahogany neck and back? I've spent a couple days searching all over; this site, ebay, google, etc, but have not been able to find much of any definitive specs of the vintage tokai, Greco, Burny, Orville models. The one model I think I may have found is an early 90s Orville Custom reissue, but the ones I've seen for sale are around $1400-1500. I'd like to stay under $1000 for a MIJ guitar, as I'm also keeping my eye out for the uglier/cheaper Gibson Customs as well in the $1500 range. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
