    Default Need help with a Gibson guitar

    Back in the early 80's I bought a Gibson Les ( not a custom or standard- I had a standard for awhile as well) and this guitar was a dark wood grain finished guitar. I cannot remember the model name though.

    I've searched for it but cant find it anywhere. I am almost certain its was a Les Paul ( at least in shape) and it was a cheaper model than the Custom or Standard.

    Anyone remember this guitar?

    Does It have a Bolt on Neck? If so, It's probly a Gibson Invader. Have one and they are sweet- Underrated!

    Maybe it was a Hondo Les Paul copy?

    Hmm. I used to have a Gibson Sonex in the 80's. It was shaped a lot like a Les Paul. It came in deluxe, standard, custom and artist models...
