HELP ME!! Identify My Guitar

I bought this guitar a while ago at a garage sale for $5. It needs some wiring and a few other parts.

The only thing I did to it so far was sand and paint it.

It has a black 2 part pick gaurd and a single pickup

On the back metal plate it says "Made in Japan"

The metal plate on the head stock says "Adjustable Rod"

As you can see, I need some tuning pegs.

Does anyone know what it is?

If I had to guess, it's probably a cheap japanese knock-off starter guitar, but it looks pretty cool.[img][/img]

looks like a 60's japanese import, possibly a Matsumoku guitar. these were really cheap back in he day for a few reasons, one was the build quality was not Fender/Gibson level, and hey used cheap tuners, etc.. Also, the bridge was often not placed right. Do not put a straight bridge on it - I suggest a tune-o-matic type, and make sure you get the intonation correct before you set the bridge with glue or whatever.

That guitar needs a lot of work - I hope you like doing projects, because the market value will be marginal unless you become a star, in which case it could be worth thou$and$...

Have fun!

Whatever it is, it's Burns inspired.
