If there's an attach photos option that's it (Not sure as I've never used mobile), but if you can't I'd recommend doing it from a computer. You can always e-mail it to your computer, save, then upload from there.

I find imgur the easiest to upload images with.

But bubbles in the finish are a defect.

Agreed: bubbles in the finish=defect.

Fake.

It doesn't appear to have wonky tuning pegs like many of the Korean-made LP's did.

But seriously that finish imperfection could've been caused by all kinds of things given the guitar's age.

yeah, i think the machineheads are some fake/knockoff klusons, they dont hold tune that well

Can you get a shot with more detail and less light reflection? I feel like I'm looking at a guitar without my glasses on.


My guess is orange peel finish. Happens when your surface isn't sanded very smooth IIRC.

So that white curved line in the middle of the picture is a scratch.


The stuff on the bottom where a bit of the light is reflecting? I think that's something people call orange peel finish (because it resembles pits in a orange I guess) and IIRC it's usually caused due to not sanding what you're painting enough and making sure the surface is completely smooth. I am an amateur though so keep that in mind.

No problem. I mean I would probably wait for a few more opinions around here in case I'm way off base but that's what I think it is.

Yeah now you mention it, it looks like orange peel.

The guitar wasn't sanded properly between finish and lacquer coats. Though the fix is pretty straightforward, if a bit time consuming.
