what kind of guitar is this? (sorry for the cliche)

I got this guitar at a dutch version of cash converters. It's my first electric guitar and I have never had any idea what kind of guitar it is. the knobs for volume and tone all say ibanez, but the neck says condor corp ltd. the bridge is japanese and there are no other marks on the guitar. I'm also wondering if anyone has a wire diagram for a 3 tone 1 volume 3 pickup guitar cause i can't find one. thx for looking at these pictures hope i can find out what kind of guitar it is or what it is made of.
the guitar used to be black i think
EDIT: i think something went wrong with resize. just click the thumbnails for bigger pics

The curved TOM reminds me of the one we found on not so accurate 70's Greco, Ibanez and Fernandes Gibson replicas.
And the Concord Logo looks like the old Fernandes Logo.

Could be made by Matsumoku...

Re: what kind of guitar is this? (sorry for the cliche)

Ahah! I've found more info!

Your guitar is built by a a group called the Condor Corporation Ltd. They make Strat and Les Paul copies, and sometimes make some changes. They are a very small guitar builder in Japan.

This guy has one as well:

I'm guessing they just chose Ibanez knobs while making your guitar.

So there's your answer: It was made by a small group in Japan.

Re: what kind of guitar is this? (sorry for the cliche)

yeah i found that page some time ago. i was hoping for some more info. i cant belive these are the only 2 on the internet. i guess it does make for a special guitar. but I think it could be that the neck is the only condor part in the mix. but then if its a mix it's non identifyble.
guess it will stay a semi mistery.
does anyone know a wire diagram for a guitar with this layout. the bridge pickup has a wire loose so it is not functioning.

thx for the effort pursuit

No problem. If the body wasn't made by Condor, it could've come from anywhere. Trying to find out where would be a complete waste of time (it probably couldn't be traced anyway).
