I am looking for any help in identifying a guitar I have or being pointed in the direction of somewhere which could help me. The only info I have is from the last buyer who said the previous seller told him it was late 70's mij les paul copy. There is no company name that I can see. The back plate has a serial number.
Is there anyway to figure out who made this and if it is actually from Japan in the late 70s early 80s? Any help is appreciated Thanks
finding another guitar with the same headstock would most likely to be the key to figuring this out. it kinda looks like an Aria but not even close to sure on that. (at work so none of my reference stuff available.)

nice looking guitar though and it does look like that could be a late 70s LP copy.
