What is unusual? Isn't this a standard 2393?

The logo looks pretty much standard fare for a LS style headstock, but the Bridge, knobs, neck pickup, pickup surrounds all look like aftermarket stuff. Also, I don't think I have ever seen a dark mohagany ( neck attached to a lighter colored body like this one.

Dave,

I have a 2351dx which is the other way around, the back of the neck is mucher lighter in color as is the back of the body. I do believe mine is original, not Frankensteined.

Bill,
You seem to be right about the neck, that looks like a 2393 indeed.
The body has a mahogany top. I don't see that neither in your 1972 catalogue nor on the German 1975 poster, but it matches the back of the neck.

Dave_G is absolutely right about the aftermarket parts. The knobs are from a Fender "The Strat" etc., etc.
It's a project guitar from someone who's very fond of golden parts.

hey paul..on a scale from 1-10 how does it play?
when i was a young ladd..lol my parents bought me an LP knock -off to try and match my brother-n-law...i was just learning how to play and at the time i was playing his 1972 2392 IBANEZ and it was the best thing i'd ever played at the time ...but when i got the other guitar LP style
knock off it had a maple neck and i could never get the feel for it....i like it on tele's and strats...but not on a LP...so whats your opinion?
but that was like 1984...i was 11 or so....but i do remember....lol
ahahah ohhh by the way...the other knock-off was not an IBANEZ...it was a LOTUS...i didnt like it at all..but i was a young ladd.....Bill

Hi Bill,

I have a few of these kittens in the house and most of them play fine. Some are real dogs however that are, even after some serious tinkering, mediocre at best. Overall I do like them (why else would I post here?)and I'd rate these guitars an average of 8 for playabilitiy.

YMMV

I found the combination of mahogany top and maple fretboard in the 1977 catalogue (for DM800.-) It wouldn't surprice me if the back showed the negative of this contrast, like the one on ebay.

BTW Bill,
On the vintage market 1976 Gibson Les Paul Custom with a maple neck and ebony block inlays are the cheapest available... because they suck.

I saw one offered in Veenendaal for 1500.- (that's 680.-) in 1999. It sucked and it was hot (serial number had been removed).

On that same day the price of a 1978 The Paul with an ebony fretboard was 1800.- and a mint CA2405 2350.- (it was DM1095.- in 1977).

(all from different dealers and collectors under the same roof).

I agree with you, Bill.
The feel of a maple neck on an LP is kind of weird.

To be honest: I never tried a peanut butter & jelly sandwich, but I'm from chocolate sprinkles country. (I did try peanut butter and honey, though, and that's sweet).

In the South they eat current loaf with gammon and apple syrop. It's weird, but some get used to it, and some never will. With this guitar it's about the same, I guess.
