I got interested in playing the guitar back in high school around 79-80. I bought myself a used Ibanez Les Paul copy in the same time frame.

The salesman told me that Ibanez almost got sued for making these so good. I remember that one of my guitar playing friends loved the action on it.

Needless to say my interest for playing the guitar waned and after a few years it wound up spending a lot of time in the closet. Through the years, I would occasionally bring it out, but for the last 5 years it just sat in it's case.

Within the last few months I've decided to start playing again (it's cheaper than golf) and I found that a few of the parts were corroded, etc. I gave the guitar to another friend of mine who said he would try to clean it up for me.

He did a pretty good job, but when he went to work on the bridge screws that adjusts the string height, he snapped one of them. WE are looking for a replacement.

Since I'm looking to get this operational again, I'm wondering what type of LP copy is this?

I'm not too good with guitarspeak but here goes...It has a purple woodgrain finish with a mahogany fretboard and bolt on neck. It has two Super 80 pick-ups and four volume knobs. It has a CUSTOM tag on it and a little sticker on the back that says Super 80's (because of the pick-ups?) The serial # is J770503.

It is still taken apart and I have no pictures of it yet. Can anybody give me an idea of what I have?
