my lefty guitar

Post  ludovico on Sun Apr 14, 2013 5:10 am

Hi all,

nice thing there is a forum for Vintage guitars.

I own one guitar which origin I am not sure about. I bought that guitar from a pawnshop in London back in 2005.

The headstock had an extra layer of black colour and a gibson logo was on it. I knew it was not a original gibson but I bought it very cheaply and it had a decent sound for the few bucks. Plus I needed a training guitar for a couple of months. That guitar remained with me until now. Smile

After removing the fake gibson sticker and the black paint, the Vintage logo came to the light. The reason why I am not sure about it being really a Vintage guitar is that the colour of the body is different from the colour of the neck plus the colour of the binding of the body is yellowish whereas the sides of the neck are still white. The body must be pretty old I assume confused . The cutaway looks Vintage style. The bridge is a Korean sung il and the pick-ups are G & B co, waxed.

And its a lefty. Have a look at it. Cool

It's a bottom of the range Vintage (V99?). No doubt about it. No one in their right mind would waste their time trying to fake a Vintage. The bolt on neck is the indicator that it is the entry level model, the dearer models are glued in. Original pickups would have been Wilkinsons. A new one would have cost about £150.
