WTB: Edwards Les Paul Custom Ace Frehley (or other Japanese brand)

Hello! I am currently looking for an Edwards Les Paul Custom Ace Frehley model. I prefer this one due to the spec correct ebony fretboard. However, I will consider other Japanese brands, as long as it is a 3 pickup Cherry burst custom Les Paul. Shipping only within EU, please. No need to pay customs...

Ciao, Johnnyl

That looks like a generic Chinese Les Paul copy with a very bad attempt to make the headstock look like a Gibson.
I wouldn't waste any time on that one.

NGD: Burny LC 75RR - Help with year, please

Hi there, Got this beauty yesterday and was wondering if it is a 1995 (serial in bridge cavity starts with 5). Also wondering if the model name with marker may have been done outside the factory. Alledgedly a Randy Rhoads model. Pickguard seems to have been lost ages ago. This one has a nice thick n...

FWIW, I own a 1989 3PU Custom Burny weighing around 6 KG (all mahogany). Needless to say I only play it at home and sitting down. I would trade it for a lighther one but I never actually go ahead and place the ad because it has the sweetest and fatest tone (as well as the longest sustain) of all my ...

I agree with Lucke. Just for the principle and to avoid additional hidden flaws, don't buy it. I have a Gib SG 61 reissue which I bought with a neck repair, but the seller told me about it and I even knew the luthier who did the job. No problem to date and I got it for a fair price. My point is- the...

Is this an LS-100F?

Hello! I am considering getting this Tokai. We are still emailing pics back and forth. Seller claims it is a Tokai LS 100F. However, I am puzzled by the lack of pickguard and factory holes for it. Does anyone have a clue? I would be receiving it (plus some cash) in exchange for my Gibson Classic Cus...

Yup, the sticker is quite obvious,but since the guy insists and seems to be convinced that it is a Japanese guitar, I needed to check it with the experts. I found it very strange as well.
Thank you for the confirmation.

I have these terrible pics for now. Owner will be sending me something better today. I know there is a "Made in Korea" sticker above the serial, but the owner claims the GP is for Terada. Supposedly, Terada made a small batch of Lucilles when production was transferred from Korea to China. Of course...

Any such thing as a Japanese Epiphone Lucille?

Hi there, experts! I am being offered a "Japanese Epiphone Lucille" allegedly from the Terada factory as a part trade for a Gibson. I cannot find any info on any Lucilles being made by Epiphone in Japan. Any clues? The seller says that very few were made there (if any, might I add). Still no pics, b...
