Looked all over the interwebs, can't find anything close to it except the above mentioned "Melody" models. The pickguard and truss cover throws me off, as does the quality and the obviously old roller bridge and pickups. This thing sounds AMAZING and you can see the wood grain through the finish and it's REALLY heavy, so i'm fairly confident the body is solid wood. The whammy bar I'm pretty sure isn't original. There's no markings on it anywhere, not on the head, the neck, under the pick guard, on the caps, under the neckplate, nothing. Some things I've seen in other knockoffs like the line just below the head I've heard is a giveaway, but you'd think that if this was a knockoff, it'd have SOME kind of logo on it. It was purchased in a lot sale with a bunch of instruments in Vegas at auction, that's all I know about where the previous owner got it. I've had it for over 15 years, and love love love playing it. It sounds amazing! I had to adjust the pickups because they were hot as hell though. They'd pick up someone talking across the room, and I couldn't be within 5 feet of my amp without feedback. Any help would be appreciated!
