    Tokai ls120 headstock veneer / inlay required for restoration.

    I have a 1981 ls120 with a solid flame top and somebody had previously changed the headstock logo to gibson (I know) It has spent some time in America where I assume this was done. Somebody on here spotted it in a small vintage guitar shop in Ohio years ago. Anyway, I'd like to have it...

    Hi there. I'm Neil from South East England, UK. Have been playing around with guitars for about 15years now. First guitar was a Burny Les Paul style guitar similar to the black Joe Perry Gibbo signature. That started me on my love of MIJ twangers. I've now amassed an assorted collection of MIJ...

    Do Aria Pro II LPCs have ebony fingerboards?

    Hi there, I am relatively new to MIJ. A simple question: do Aria Pro II LPCs have ebony fingerboards? If yes, then which models? I keep browsing Aria Pro II catalogues, but there are many of them. So, decided to ask experts. Extra question: which MIJ LPCs of "that era" (70's-80's) have ebony...

    NGD - '82 Greco ECG57-60

    Happened to snag one on Reverb after longing for one for months. And interestingly enough, this one has quite the story to tell - it started its Reverb journey in (a music store in) Hawaii, got sold to someone in NC and ended up in AL. People kept listing it on Reverb, someone eventually bought...

    Greco SA-90 or Tokai ES100R

    Both have recently popped up on my local Craigslist. The main difference is a headstock break on the Tokai so I’m not quite sure if it'd be worth it or if I should rather go for the Greco. This is the Tokai

    NGD - 1982 Aria Pro II Cardinal Series CS-400

    This is a 1982 Aria Pro II Cardinal CS-400, the top of the line of the Cardinal series. I found it on sale for 400€ (about 450$ I guess) with a hard case and with a bunch of improvements/mods. I couldn't resist and I bought it, also because another Aria Pro II (a Viper VP-65) was my first guitar...

    Hi all, After a long time browsing the MIJ market and chickening out of taking the plunge with a purchase, I finally pulled the trigger on a mint collection Greco LP. I always wanted a birth year guitar and since this one was also birth MONTH then I couldn't say no! All the way from Japan to...

    So I haven't really been posting in these parts lately, as I'd gotten more or less all the MIJ LPs that I'd thought I'd wanted or needed (in addition to a couple of Gibbys, all but one of which wound up getting flipped) and been exploring the S-type side of things for a while. One of those...

    Pros and Cons of 1970s MIJ vs Epiphone Les Pauls

    Budget $300: I have the opportunity to purchase a "No Name," lawsuit era (open book headstock),1976 MIJ blonde Les Paul copy with a maple fretboard in very good condition that is within my budget. It is a "pancake" and, from what I can gather, was made to sell either as an Ibanez or Greco but...

    Help identify this Eagle

    The brand name says Eagle, but the logo looks nothing like the other Eagle guitars that I’ve been able to find in my searches. I’ve read that the Eagle brand guitars were built in Japan and marketed and sold in France. Any more information would be greatly appreciated!
