Quick guide to early '80's Japanese Les Pauls

Tokai - All great guitars bottom of the range LS50 to top of the range LS200

Greco - beware pre 1980 guitars, post 1980 range from OK to excellent depending on model

Burny - as Greco

Navigator - all top quality

Orville/Orville by Gibson - very good to great depending on model

Tiesco, Pearl - take your chances, a lot of not so great guitars out there

Use the search function there's a load of info on the forum, but it will take a long time to get through it all. Good luck

Edwards & Bacchus both make excellent guitars, but are newer brands than those mentioned above

Grandy - Tokai made
Fresher - don't have any idea about
