Hey all, does anybody recognize this brand/model of guitar? I feel like I'm so close to reading that headstock, but so far. I'm thinking the rounded bout may have been chopped down to that, regardless I still can't I.D. what this started as.





For anyone curious who that is, it's Tim Armstrong (Operation Ivy, Rancid, etc...) in 1992 at the beginning of Rancid as a band.

I think that's highly probable. Would love to figure out at least the brand though so I can come up with some options.

Hacked up Explorer type guitars have always been kind of cool.

Looks similar to the Aria Pro II ZZ as well, but the one in question is probably a Takamine because it looks like that on the headstock.

Probably both brands of that model came out of the same factory.

I thought it looked Aria Proish and maybe Matsumoku too, but the sort of knobbly knuckle part on the headstock I think gives it away as a Takemine.
