Have any of you guys ever come across one of these before?

Both very nice, if you're into a LPC with P-90's. Maple cap, or mahogany over mahogany? Pretty good price step between them.

Yeah, agreed... Koiz is always pretty high on his BIN price. He is somwhat reasonable though with considering best offers. I got my Burny RLG-65 from him for a decent offered price.

Just wondering if tonewise they are basically same as a 54-56 goldtop... but were the ebony ones maple capped like the GT or all mahogany like the early Customs?

Not bad looking. Could be a refinished OBG LP goldtop (P90's/tail-wrap bridge):



.....or a one-off/special run.


Hey, I was hoping you would drop in. I actually took a look another peek at your collection earlier to see if you had one of these squirreled away in there somewheres... They had to have been something of an actual limited run as there is also the one on that Japanese webpage. I've always liked the ebony with cream P-90's (maybe not quite as much as the goldtop)
