I have boought a second hand Gibson Astoria and the guy in the local music shop says its a fake. It is a special Sg custom and all the bits seem legit.

Re: Has anyone ever heard of Astoria guitars??? I Have!!!

Hello Folks,

The Astoria guitars are well known to me in case
they are Japanese made instruments between 1970
and 1980.
In fact they're coming from the TAMA factory,
in any case the acoustic guitars. These guitars
are really finely built with a lot of craftsmanship. They sound great! When the Tama
luthiers stopt in about 1980 they started making
the first Ibanez Artwood series, they're great too. Check the Tama unofficial website:

Best wishes to all, Noud
