Back and top is either acrylic or nitro. reacts to acetone. I just wonder why a one piece body on a goldtop.....Never seen it before. No indications ...

Could be.
But, that would be known to the staff before they glue the top onto the body.

I can't recall I have ever seen a onepiece body and nitro finish on a goldtop.

But weird.

FEB, nitro, one pice back, no heel cap neck and the maple top has a well centered seem. Doesn't make sense at all.

Why is it gold? Never heard about Japanese manufacturers doing factory refins like Fender and Gibson did back in the days.

A weird gold top

One piece back, one piece neck (no heel cap) and nitro finish. However, goldtop. Seems to be a solid flame top under the gold as well. Weird it is. Does anyone know if the workers occasionally did LSD or somehting? http://i1302.photobucket.com/albums/ag132/Hepphepphepp/2016-01-07%2018.51.37_zpsx8g7s...

That is an 83ish Jazz Sound.
The tuners tells that it is a lower model.

Had a bunch of those matching headstock Jazzes.
Usually JB48.

Here is one I had

I have had a bunch of both MCs and SRs. They are alright but I'd go an extra kilometers to grab a vintage Gibson. I have had no Japanese even close to my old vintage SG Specials. When it comes to SGs, just go vintage cause they are so much better. The price is obviously higher but get a player with ...

Looking for one of those Italian beasts.

Its a longshot but since here are some Italians on the forum I might get lucky.

It has to be the model with 4 pickups and tremolo in red.
Fully original and mint condition.
