    Hi all, another newbie here...
    (and couldn't be 'newbier', posted it originally in the wrong forum :rolleyes:) IMG_20180804_220336396.jpg IMG_20180807_175153348.jpg IMG_20180807_175211413.jpg IMG_20180807_175223778.jpg IMG_20180807_175235487.jpg IMG_20180807_175255257.jpg IMG_20180807_175321092.jpg


    Got this SG knockoff but can't find the logo - or any markings on the guitar itself - that could help me identify it...

    What I know:
    - no MIJ marks anywhere - hence the Korean theory
    - pots have plastic posts
    - 'misplaced' output jack
    - unusual bridge and trem
    - zero fret
    - 2-piece mahogany body
    - single coil pickups

    Any help is enourmously appreciated!

    No clue but I'd suspect Japanese. They didn't always put "Made in Japan" on them and this is more advanced than what Koreans were making around the time I suspect it was made. It seems to be loosely based on a '71-'72 SG Deluxe. I would assume the roller bridge is not stock.
