Don't have it back yet. I'm hoping it'll be ready today or tomorrow.

A bit old for lawsuit, but a '76 Antoria branded Ibanez. Recently replaced the chrome bridge pickup with a very early DiMarzio SD as I wanted something hotter, & changed the tuners for Grovers. The rest is original. The thinnest neck ever. It's started to take over from my short scales..

So this thread rules, for sure. Lately I've been kind of wanting to begin saving up for a nice Greco Les Paul, but I know pretty much nothing about Gibson, let alone what to look for in a solid Greco or whatever. I've heard the myth about the 70s MIJ guitars being better than the ones they were based on at the period, and I know that Norlin Gibsons are aside from the current Gibson output viewed as the worst in company history. I know these things - I want it to be white and I want it to not be a bolt on neck. There's one on reverb right now that's perfect but it's like AVRI money and I'd like to spend like $400-$600. Is that unreasonable?

At that price point you'd be hard pressed to buy a better (copy of a) Les Paul than a Yamaha Studio Lord.

Bought this 1970's Artist Tele from a charity shop a few weeks back for £10. Had to give it a clean, replace the strings and two knobs so another £8. Plays great and the neck is nice too.
