Hi,

I've two Japanese made Electric guitars from the 70's and 80's (so hard to date exactly) and both have been absolutely fantastic. I also have a number of Acoustics Guitars from a similar vintage (ibanez, Kasuga, Aria, Hayakawa and Takeharu) have to say they are great as well.
But focusing on the electrics, one is an Aria - Les Paul copy Speckled Gold Top, it has a bolt on neck with twin humbuckers. Sounds great plays great and looks great - i cant establish the year but I'm told it is mid 70's.
The other is an Aria Pro II, RS Straycat (production dates puts it between 1984-1986) this is also loaded with twin humbuckers and sounds awesome, has a coil tap, with a push pull selector.
Both are all original, except the les paul which didn't have the plastic nib on the selector switch when i got it, i got one from the music store and it fit like a glove (colour is a bit off - but works).
I have read good things about Japanese guitars but was originally concerned that they were the equivalent of todays Chinese knock offs.
I am pleased to say they are outstanding instruments.
Interested to know what others think about them and their experiences?

Any help will be apprecited.

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
