    So the other day I was on Kijiji and this popped up, had no idea what it was but a search of the headstock logo peaked my interest, wound up picking it up the next day! not too bad for a 38 year old guitar, had to do some work to it. The nut is cut really low and the bad ass bridge has seen better days but is useable unfortunately one of the adjustment screws has broken off inside, so I had to flip a couple of saddles to get the intonation on. I have to say I am very pleased with it as is ( other than the nut, easy fix ) sounds great, dimarzio pickups seem quite nice. Anyone come across one of these before?

    I should've bought a project Odyssey guitar that was offered on the local craigslist a few weeks ago.
    It needed to have the stripped body filled & re-finished, re-assembled & set up but all the original parts were there.

    Cool looking, but I can't tell if it's the angle of the photo or if the guitars neck and headstock are really that disproportionate to the body.
    Looks like a travelers body with a standard guitar neck.

    Maybe this is a better angle:

    My poor photography skills!! it doesnt look that way in person, anyway sometimes you just luck out on Kijiji, although more likely to be a bust lately!!
