she came today and i have to say wow!
got her realy cheap, i mean i couldn't have a epiphone for that price.

Neck:
Slim/taper, seems like pretty much the same as my 86' Rickenbacker 360. Feels perfect and isn't too narrow. I always thought about that 50's Gibson necks would feel like that. The neck is worn though the lacquer on the back, just right for the overall wear on the guitar, maybe a little bit helped because on the body the lacquer seems a little thickish. No neck dive !

Pickups:
Both sound right, maybe a little bit weak for humbuckers, but good if you are accustomed to single coils. Both pickups sound like they should. Clean and distorted not too muddy and still very resonant. Neck + bigmuff = black keys and bridge + treble boost = allah-las, pretty much all i want!

Wear:
He stated that it has wear and thats right. She has been played realy hard, but thats good because i always thought that guitars that has been played a lot sound the same and thats the matter here. It has even played though 1ply of the neck binding (3 ply).

Im feeling like i got the real tour guitar, that needs to be played. Maybe someone could help me to find where it has been made and find some background information.

Super cool! Also love the body top contours. :-*

This reminds me I have a very similar SG shaped guitar under a bed in pieces. I really need to get that thing together. :unsure:

Looks like the same exact neck as yours. Mine is branded "Buddy"! Lol :D

Neat guitar, but in no way a "Lawsuit" guitar!

it is cool.
a lot of those chrome pickups are actually singles, disguised as HB's. that could explain your impression of them.

aria's and conrads and a bunch of others used them.
