    Help, looking for wine red MIJ LP custom. FGN? Suggestions??

    Hey guys, I’m jonesing for a wine red custom with an ebony board. Will most likely be buying used. I’m leaning towards a newer model like FGN, of which I really like the look of.

    Korea/Japan Hybrid Custom

    I just got this Les Paul and looking at things like the headstock shape and truss rod cover suggests it's made in Samick Korea between 1989-1991 but also looking at the features make me question if it's not. The wiring looks like it was done professionally not in a production line so it may...

    Burny's - Made in Japan?

    Who can tell me which of the new Burny RLC models are made in Japan? So far I thought if they have a three-screw TRC, they're made in China, but doesn't seem to be the case. Any infos on that? Thanks, much appreciated!

    Finally found a Les Paul and it's a beauty! Exactly what I'd been looking for without the custom shop price tag. It's a 2015 limited edition Japan Les Paul traditional heritage cherryburst.
