p.s. I just took a better look and it's not 50's style wiring. I was looking at the picture upside-down, assuming that the neck would be on the left.

My apologies, I should've been more clear with the pics I've posted (I didn't know it made a difference what was up or down, it's all very new to me).

But you're right, the neck was to the right in those pics. Maybe I should look into the differences in the wiring, for now it's all Chinese to me (as a matter of speaking).

Thanks for the tip on the thinner strings, also logical if you think about it (but still, I didn't).

Anyone knows something about background of those guitars? A MIJ copy of Gibson Recording.
Made in 1972/73, they have maxon pickups, mahogany body, and this is more or less all i know.

I just picked this up last week. Its well made, has binding and I'm a sucker for a bookmatched figured maple top. No other info, previous owner bought it like this, was going to do something with it but had too many projects on the go. So I opted to give it a whirl. Definitely NOT a Gibson but I don't think it is "home made". Notice the curve around the neck joint area, was a bolt on neck. Anybody ever seen this style on any factory built guitar? I'm looking forward to getting this project going.
