Univox Les Paul Style Electric Guitar

Hey all, one of my bandmantes from school brought this guitar to my house, I'm wondering exactly what model this could be, it had the pickguard removed as I can see the mounting screw holes on the body, and the knobs are gone and the input jack is gone, so it'll be quite a fixxer upper.

My ideas are that it's pre 1968 era because from what I had researched so far Gibson filed a lawsuit against Univox for copying their headstock, and the headstock on this guitar is exactly the same as the gibson style one.

Pictures:








I know the second picture came out a little blurry, but please if you know the model, please tell me!

Re: Univox Les Paul Style Electric Guitar

That's an early-mid 70's guitar, definitely not a pre '68. I had one back when they were new They weren't too bad, but they were a great big step below a Gibson. I'm not sure what model it is, but it will likely take a standard LP style pickguard if you want to get one for it. I suppose it might be worth getting new pots for and possibly new pickups as well, but I don't know. Maybe GFS pickups....

I would doubt there is a collectors market for these instruments. I would try removing the enck and seeing if there is anything stamped int he cavity that might give you an idea of the model number.
