I bought this online from guitar Center Today for $139. I think it is pretty much the same guitar as the one I bought in 1978 at Crazy Eddies Record Store for $99.



This is the one I bought at Crazy Eddies. The headstock shape is the same as the Magnum but it has an "A" instead of the "Butterfly"



I bought the one in 1978 because it looked like the black Les Paul Mick Jones had.

This is the control cavity



Some Cimar Les Pauls had the same shape headstock.

cheap, japanese LP copies rule..I had several, a nice one was a Hondo II with stock DiMarzios..like most of them chambered with a bolt-on neck..
chambered means a funny, thin layer of veneer on top (instead of a solid maple cap)
I also had a japanese one with singlecoils in humbucker case..sounded great!
