Anybody have any thoughts on what this is? Made in Japan & likely 80's or earlier IMO. Pickups may and trapeze tailpiece not be original.

Looks like a Conrad to me - Similar to some Univox as well. Lots of guitars shared the same look in the late 60's early 70's. That could even be a Kent. I'd be shocked if it was an 80's guitar.

Hey Jead, I mean't 80's or earlier. I saw features like this on guitars in the early to mid 70's. My buddy was cleaning his basement and gave it to me. Looks like an easy project!

A copy of a Barney Kessel signature guitar? I am guessing -
