the Stellar LP I posted above is solid mahogany.
the pickups will be changed to (probably) EMG 85/60 :D

Stellars and Orvilles or Tokai's are not in the same league anyway, it's just day and night. Orvilles, Tokai's and Greco's are usually in the $500/$1000 price range...

I like the new G&L Tribute too those are very close to the 2000$ ones you have to order . and they are only 399.99 to start. alot of gyes bye those from me who have the high end G&L's and need a back up to tour with and they all say the same thing that they both play and fell great even though one is US made and the other is KOREAN I was shocked when I frist pluged one in .

I don't know, seems really cheapish and seller's feedback's not that good. Just my opinion.
