I received an email from a friend that has an opportunity to buy an El Degas-branded 2372. I don't remember personally ever seeing an Ibanez version of this guitar other that the cat scans on Harry's site. I imagine its a pretty rare bird, and I have no idea what the relationship was, if any, that existed between Ibanez and El Degas.

Any help from you lawsuit gurus (Harry?) would really be appreciated.

Hi Jeff

I have received the same email as you did from this guy.
I informed him about the 2372 (Les Paul Professional copy). I asked him to send me a picture, since he is going to buy it (the asking price was $175 and he thought that he could get it for even less. That's a steal anyway for such a guitar, no matter what brand).
I can't quite remember the relationship between El Degas brand and Hoshino/Ibanez, but I guess I'll be able to find out once I see the pictures.

Kind greetz,

Harry, I referred him to your website.

I figured you would be the person to ask.

El Degas were a Canadian market label owned by a company called B&J. Given the El Degas instruments I've seen over the years I suspect they may have been made by more than one company. It wouldn't surprise me if Fujigen made some. Production switched to Korea at some point in the mid '80s.
