Seems like a fair price.... here's the scoop:

G, J & K beginning the serial numbers denote that is was made by the Terada factory: the "G" ink stamp means the guitar should have Gibson
USA pickups, and "J" for Japanese pickups. K stands for Kuramae, Yamano's wholesales division.
No letter beginning the serial number = FujiGen Factory-built.

In the early days of ObG, they used mostly Bill Lawrence or TM490 pickups. They dropped BL's soon after and started using 57 Classic's in reissues, FM and QM models, Japanese made GOTOH's in the lower end models.

" the 1962's T - BUCKER"

Not very accurate. 1962 Gibson HBs are post-PAF, pre-T-Top. These appear to be very late T-Tops, pre-Shaw.

Pardon my suspicion; maybe the seller is just poorly informed. But, lie about one thing, lie about something else.

Hi, don't think the seller is lying. At least he shows the PU's as they are mounted, he perhaps just doesnt' know the right name (and neither do I). The one thing he does do is call them Classics referring to the '57 Classisc and that, they are definitely not.

I would always go for a Fujigen guitar (no letter serial number) because IMHO those are the best guitars.

Hope this helps...
