Please help me Identify this guitar

I am thinking of buying this guitar, It is only 100$.

It looks like it has a Lo Pro on it... but the seller says it was made in korea.
I thought only Japanese RG's had the Lo Pro on them... this doesnt look like a TRS at all!

I am thinking of refinishing it and giving it a Flame Top.

Re: Please help me Identify this guitar

yeah look at my guitar i just posted. my bridge is a lo pro edge. so i am certain thats one too. for $100 the bridge its self is worth it. the rest of the guitar is probably nice if it plays if those are nice after market pickups its amazing steal. i cant tell though that neck looks like it might be from a different guitar but i could be wrong. serial makes no sense to me. but for $100 thats incredible. serial says its korean. it looks beat up a little with dings on the headstock every where. the bridge on its own is pretty crazy. pickups look like they might be good if they work. for 100 its good for me even if the pickups did not work. but i aint looking to buy a guitar right now. so i would say if its got something you want or to fix up great deal. if it all comes working even more incredible.

Re: Please help me Identify this guitar

Could be possible that the neck is from another guitar. I'll pick this up later this week.

The seller told me those pickups are old DiMarzios (the humbuckers) That he took off another guitar and that the Single Coil is from a Mexican Strat.

It has the AANJ so I could easily find a Replacement neck for it...
or could I just sand it down or something to make it look better/new

yeah sounds like a great deal then. the fret board probably will be playable still. if the pickups work it will be sick. and i think they will as i see recent pic's of him playing it. even though the neck might be from some where else and it might be a korean build for that price who cares. necks are replaceable and fixable. all that sounds great.

As said before definitely looks like a Lo Pro. The serial number dates it to the Korean Samick plant 1994.
