I found one of these at a pawnshop it was dusty and with rusty strings but look promising , Up close the thing had a schaller Floyd Rose just that alone was way worth the asking price i don't think they knew what they had , Long story short this guitar is amazing ebony fretboard , ash body a thin finish , Grover tuners and nice pickups don't know the brand i'd imagine Gibson and It sounds and feels great not letting it go anytime soon
