There was a lot more good and hopefully honest info than on a lot of ebay listings! In one of the published answers to questions he stated that the guitar weighed no more than 4kgs.

So what? Most super real I have played were less than 4 kg. That's normal for a 80 Mij Guitar...

That's normal for a Les Paul generally speaking. It's a surprise only for players of recent Gibson. ^^

So what? I was just answering MIJVintage earlier post as he didn't seem to have been able to find the info on the auction pages.

I take it you read Japanese?

I didn't see any English language in the listing other than a half dozen words .............

I haven't played many Super Real examples & I expect that (most) any model of solid body is likely put together with random pieces of lumber

Having said that my 1980 EGF-850 was 9 lb. 8 oz. & my 1980 EGF-1000 was over 10 lb.

9 lb. 4 oz. is pretty much my top limit for a Lester style fiddle ..........

The 8.75 lb. to 9.0 lb. range is (usually) where I find the best Lesters :)

So, there is no translation option within the listing?

"There was prompt decision hope by question 1, but does not think. I do not understand the weight in haka re-が nothing Ino, but think that there are more than 4 kilos."

Does he mean the guitar weighs >4 K, or <4K :lol:
