Onyx jazzmaster copy

Post by kimey » Tue Jun 30, 2020 2:14 am

Hi.
New username, used to frequent this forum regularly.


Recently picked up an Onyx jazzmaster copy with what look like p90s in it

Anyone else have anything similar?

Where are you picking it up from? I couldn't find any guitar resembling a JM with the Onyx brand on US ebay.

Some quick research reveals that Onyx was an Australian rebadge for Korean made guitars in the 80s which has recently been revived (only this time the badge is going on Chinese made guitars). Are you an Ocker by any chance? Because I don't think that brand exists beyond your shores (except maybe New Zealand or some of the Pacific island nations and territories?)

Google is surprisingly quiet on the subject. This is the closest thing I could find, and I'm kind of glad I looked lol! How crazy is this???
