My friend many years ago had one of these, this guitar inspired him to buy the gibson les paul, a great platform to leave the basics. Sound was ok and they were not bad value for money back then, usualy sold through catalouges so product support was crap! This guitar was the way must people got into music back in the 70's.

Nice japanese copy of LP - great wood, nice tuners and bridge, great craftmanship. 

I just updated pickups in mine to real gibsons and for 350$ I'm the owner of perfectly sounding black beauty.

Just bought this guitar 3 months ago with Wilkinson humbucker pickups for £190 including hard case that's a really good fit, it's not a Gibson les paul custom but it's not to far away and I absolutely love it.

I have just aquired a different version of this guitar.

Mine does not have a 3 way switch,it has 2x2 way switches next to the controls.

This is a very cheaply made guitar made from plywood,with single coils masquerading as humbuckers.

I had to completely strip mine down to bare wood as it was terribly scratched down to the wood.

Now fitted with a 17k warman in the bridge,and a G&B rescued from a PRS S2 in the neck.

Theres no reason why this guitar wont last another 40+ years now,and it still retains that early 70s mojo.
