SO if ANYONE knows anything about this guitar and if it can be restored that would be great, i don't know the model, it just says profile on the headstock. I know they were MiJ and MiK for some aussie co in the 80s but thats all the info i could find.







I want to make it a project to work on for fun, it's in rough shape though.

From what I understand, the MiJ stuff was usually pretty decent. I'd say as long as the neck is in good nick, it'd make a pretty good project to work on.

Afraid I can't help on the "profile" name, though.

Take it from me, restoring a beat-up low-end Asian guitar is not worth the money and effort. You absolutely can find parts to fit with some trial and error. But you would be better off putting your time and money elsewhere. Especially with that guitar, which appears to be a plywood body from the photos.

+1. Modern day Asian guitars are usually good for the money. Back in the 80's/70's, this was not the case. They were usually worse than modern day MIC guitars.
