Guitar query

Around 1989/90, when the famous music shoppe "MANNY'S" in Manhattan was still in business, I purchased a guitar an electric guitar for about $205 including sales tax. The guitar has a Gibson Led Paul body with sunburst coloring and it has the moniker of "SESSIONS LOVE POWER" on the head that holds the tuning pegs. Can't find anything on the model,make and maker. Haven't opened it up to find serial no. Any info from anyone about this guitar would be deeply appreciated. Thanks in advance.

unknown guitar

Ive had this guitar for a few years now , i got it given to me off my exes grandad he said hes had it since he was young, anyway ive searched all over the internet for a match on this guitar but the brand is nowhere to be seen ? no model number or anything all it has is the word ACTION in slanted writing on the head. The head is just a triangle with all the tuning pegs on the same side... its a strange one , anybody know what it could be ?
thanks

Mystery Guitar. Solve the Mystery!! S310SG

so, my friend gave me a guitar he had sitting in his closet for maybe 10 years. it didn't work so i took it and decided to try to fix i up. however, when trying to find out what kind of guitar it was i couldn't. It's almost impossible. cut there is a CLUE! The guitar has a wood finish, just a light stained. the neck looks descent but i can't tell if its great or not. at the bottom of the neck on the back there's a model number 'S310SG'. of course i searched the model number and found the model is that of an epiphone/gibson but looking through every picture of this series of guitar from late 80's to 2004 i couldnt find a match. It says in various descriptions of this style that "epiphone" is on the headstock, but there is no name anywhere, aside from the model number. the only thing i could think of is that someone slapped a model sticker on a no named guitar, but the sticker doesnt look at all like it's ever been tampered with. If anyone wants to take a crack at this Mystery email me and i'll send you pics of the guitar in question. i'll probably forget about this thread and page as soon as i leave it. i look forward to getting some help,

Re: unknown guitar??

I bought an arirang classical guitar five years ago 20 Euros in a pawn shop in France. it was my first guitar. I've had many guitars, and some of them were probably better, but I know I won't ever sell this one. It sounds great for a 20 Euros guitar, I play it everyday, and it's MY guitar.

arirang is korean for "dear beautiful", guessing its a mid to late 1970's korean copy maker, all pretty cool

Re: unknown guitar??

Hello, I'm lorenz from germany! last year my uncle gave me an arirange accoustic guitar! I was very surprised when i played it for the first time! I wanted to get more information about this guitar and so i went to a guitar shop in germany! the owner told me, it's a 30 years old guitar and was made in korea! in the 70ties and 80ies it was a concurent(?) of ibanez and yamaha, but it was much more cheaper! They have done good work, i think! I played 2000 dollar guitars which don't dound so lovely like my cheap and goldy arirang!

Re: unknown guitar??(Arirang)

----------------------------------------

I can't read the link it's in a foreign language German I think. Just looked up the item on EBAY but it's gone now. I also have an Arirang guitar, and have been wondering about it. There are some unique things about this guitar. First of all, it is an acoustic, and VERY old. I bought it nearly 30 years ago and it was used then, don't know how old. It is a beautiful Sunburst, finish is holding up well - only checks are the idiot marks I put on it as a teenager. The bridge is starting to separate from the body, but the bridge is screwed it, interesting - NO PROBLEM. The bridge cannot pull loose. I had to replace the saddle recently, took me a long time to find one. The saddle ALSO screws in. Tuners suck, but haven't replaced just to keep it original. Plays well, action good, sounds good. It's the first guitar I ever owned, and I'm going to keep it. Don't see a S/N anywhere on it. But I truly belive that guitar is going to last forever. Somebody put together a 'cheapie' guitar that was better made than some Gibsons I've seen for $2000.

Re: unknown guitar??(Arirang)

hey i also have one, its an sg model very dark wine red.
my uncle has given it to me but its not new, jit has been at his parents home for 15 years,since his old group separated. he took the guitar (he didnt play the guitar, he played bass)so we add more or less 7 years(15+7=22) but the guitar wasnt newso we add 5 years that make 27 years.
