OBG for ID

Post by jericojuliolab » Fri May 13, 2011 1:25 am

Good day to everyone.

Would like to request identifying what model is this OBG. SN is G2plus five digit numbers. Said to be in flamed aged cherry burst

Said to be
1. in 1 piece mahogany body non-weight relieved back.
2. in 2 piece flamed maple carved top
3. Long tenon neck joint

Is this a 59ri or a standard.

Am thinking of getting this at an offer price of USD1,250

Pics below link for your ref

Many thanks in advance

I would guess a Standard from 1992 with a veneer top that is not a reissue. If I were you I'd request better full-size pictures before deciding. Here a guitar like that would go for between $800 to $1000 US at typical prices so I'd say you are not too far off depending on where you live.

Thanks that was fast.

If that is the case do have to wait for more time, a 59ri is what I want.

Your for your early reply. I needed that.

Made by Terada factory in 92.I would guess a veneer as well.

Definitely not a RI : pickups aren't C57 (missing PAF sticker), and from the first photo, I'm pretty sure it doesn't have FEB

I don't think there were many RIs in 1992, except for the few preruns to 1993. So the chance of a 1992 being a RI is slim.
Because of the mirror flame this is most likely a veneer top, so a LPS-T.
