Arbor RR guitar

Hi, I just found a guitar just like you guys are talking about. I started cleaning it up. Going to change the junk pots
that are in it. It had a Dimarzio in the neck and I had a Gibson LP pickup for the bottom. It has the brass nut with locks &
set neck. Couple cracks in the paint both sides of the neck but its tight. I have to repair a chip in the head stock and there's
a hole drilled through the body between the pick ups ????? It also has a Kahler tremelo. I don't see a place to add a picture?
Anyone found out anything more about these guitars?
Thanks Tony

Arbor V

My dad bought one in 81 when he was 16 at a yard sale for 100 bucks witha fender amp its black with the white pinstripes
he did a little modding himself in his youth i watched him play since i was 3 and i wanted that guitar since. He handed it over to me at 18 and im now 25 i love this thing and will be buried with it he changed out the tremelo with an 82ish kahler flyer which seriously never loses tune and wails. well when he gave it to me it had some rust and such i changed out the pots got lucky and found another flyer on ebay for $75 and replaced the old with a that one which was black and replaced the knobs over explorer black speed knobs basically everything else is stock an what him/I have changed can you guys load pics or email them to me i want to see them as I havent seen any others except once on ebay when i was around 17 and it was nothing but the wood and no hardware and i missed the bid by a few dollars lol...I did email Arbor to find any info on them btw mine has a sort of lightning bolt headstock instead of the puck or traditional style....I also have a sticker on the back G502 thats about it
