The seller says it was bought from zellers along time ago and they think it's from either the 70's or 80's.
Does anyone know what brand, pickup and scale the guitar is?

Looks Japanese, possibly Zen-On. Also seems expensive for what it is.

These are always shit, but if the neck is straight and you're just looking for a guitar shaped object to bolt some good parts onto as a project it may be cool.

Yes do it, you won't.
Would look so gnarly and probably sound vicious.

Back in the day, Zellers was never known for their quality...... low prices on cheap stuff, yes...... but not quality.

I'll second that. It's a decent collectible. And could be a player. Important: Find out if it has a working truss rod.

I can tell you that it's fucking ugly and probably won't stay in tune as the tuners will be shite.
