Hi there.

I was searching for a tokai les paul when I saw a beautifull FABER in an e-bay add:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/131589981886?_trksid=p2055359.m1431.l2648&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

Its a Faber Relic Series LSC-HBR, Tokai Pup's.
I've never heard of Faber. Are these good guitars? What price should a guitar like this seel for?
Thanks!

I believe they're build in the same factory as where the Korean Tokais were made.

It's hard to tell from the pictures. The pickup rings look MIK, but the bridge looks MIJ.

I own(ed) and played lots of Faber - from cheap to more expensive range. Great guitars at very affordable price. I played one similar on Musikmesse this year and I want to buy it because it was really a fantasti piece - but unfortunatelly sold

Yep, looks like the typical sycamore veneer to me too. Nothing wrong with that of course.
