NGD - Early '70s Ibanez 2350

Hi!
I've just bought a pre-lawsuit Ibanez 2350 (Les Paul shape),
The guitar need some restoring (refretting etc..) but seems to be very well-built!
Is all Original, apart the pickups (now Dimarzio PAFs) and the tuners (the previous owner did a really bad work as you can see form the headstock!).
Now some questions to the experts:
I checked the vintage catalogues and the guitar seems to be a pre-1973 model, is there any chanche to figure the precise year (obviously there's no Serial Number)?
The guitar is really light, maybe is chambered?

Now the Pics:

Re: NGD - Early '70s Ibanez 2350

I'm curious, does it have a thinner neck compared to a real Les Paul? Or is it an exact copy? That would be weird.. playing a Les Paul weighted and shaped guitar with a thin neck!

The neck is slightly thinner than a LP '60 shape neck (if I remember well), but surely not thin as a Wizard II neck (and way thicker than a Wizard ), I can make some photos to show the differences.
The Weight is really different, the Ibanez is really lighter than a LP (maybe also because the body seems thinner).

Its a 73 or 74. You can tell from the rounded end or the neck. In 75 they went to square neck ends and yes its a chambered body.

I gave a quick look on the catalogues and the guitar seems pre 1973.
From 1973 there are different inlays:

1972

1973

Sorry dude. Just an old Monty Python joke about not understanding the language. No offence intended mate.
