    For sale near me. Trying to get the seller to send me better and detailed pics, but he knows nothign about guitars and isn't very helpful.

    The seller inherited the guitar and doesn't play and knows nothing. He says there is no logo, but it does say MIK. The diamond logo on the head stock is consistent with Hohner LP copies. I'm now trying to find out if set neck or not. If not, bye bye!

    probably Cort or Samik made, those two factories made lots of guitars as OEM

    the top of headstock.. ?

    Look like a late 70's / early 80's HondoII. the pickups are the only decent thing on them.

    Perhaps, but that does look to be a decent case and worth a few shekels. If I was looking for a LP (and in the area) I'd be willing to go to his local McDonald's and check it out.
