    1976 or 1979 Starfield (Ibanez) Les Paul Custom Copy

    $100 at Music Go Round

    Love it. Shallow but wide neck, light (8.5 lbs), bolt-on neck (preferred by me for ease of adjustment/tilt).

    Appears completely stock, solder joints, etc.

    Pickups ? Have yet to remove them to see what's on the back but they are overly/ridiculously hot - 10k/11k.

    Going to put Parson's St humbuckers in it from StewMac.

    $130 worth of pickups in a $100 guitar ! :lol::lol:

    Heck , more than that as I'll get the new pots/cap/wiring too...

    I think it's a rule that on an inexpensive guitar, the mods must cost more than what the guitar cost you. My $215 Jazzmaster has at least $300 worth of changes on it. :rolleyes:

    Having just browsed the "Butchered" thread, I think you might want to consider some extra pots and switches, too!

    Ha ! I know - this won't be the first money hole I've had...:lol:

    But it scratches an itch I've had for a while and it stops me from buying a Japanese Orville I know about that's about $550-$600.
