Greetings!
Got it in an antique store for $200.
The tailpiece, the bridge, and pickup switches point to Teisco line.
There's no signs or logos outside or inside but "inspected by" with Japanese hiragana characters and LP50 sticker on the back.
The serial number at the back of the head is scratched over - perhaps the guitar was removed from supply chain before being branded in the US.
Thanks,
Alex.

perhaps it was once stolen.

either way, bolt on neck les pauls are typically the bottom of the barrel, lowest end guitars.

not worth $200 when it was new so pass on it, is my advice.
I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.

Thanks,
It came with a hard shell case in perfect condition I do need for my other guitar so I consider it being a $100+ purchase I bought it to decorate my basement - not to really include into my arsenal. I also can't find any pictures/references to this particular model and am intrigued with its origin.

make a thread over at mylespaul in the other single cuts section, they can probably tell you with a high degree of certainty. the truss rod cover, tuners and neck plate seem matsumoku built to me but i'm not the expert that guys like slapshot, udonitron, rebornold and jacco are. unfortunately they don't post here much.
