Rare 1974 Univox Les Paul Special in Louisville for $350

this is just a very rare guitar. It is a Univox copy of a Les Paul DC Special and as yu can see it is a set neck version w P-90 type pickups making it a pretty close copy - of course I doubt it plays or sounds much like a Gibson but it is still a rare and unusual find. Very few Set neck Japanese electric solid body guitars from this period.

  1. i used to own one of these... believe it or not, these ARE actually bolt-on necks, but they're screwed onto the body fron the INSIDE, under the guard/neck pickup! still, fantastic look, feel and sound!

  2. I'm restoring my 1975 Vox LE and having a heck of a time finding a new pickguard. I'm not a tech, so cutting my own is out. Glad I held on to it. Couldn't give it away 20 years ago, now people drool over it.

    1. Hi Frank and Bella. I saw this post from last January and was wondering if you were ever able to find a pickguard for your Vox LE. I've searched high and low but no luck. Please let me know if you were able to find someone that sells them. Thanks, Jeff

  3. I am also looking for a Pickguard for my old Univox 75 DC LE 2 Pickup guitar. It plays and sounds great with the 2 P90 pups. Any one have any help? Thanks T
