From what I've been able to gather, "Guitar Research" is a Sam Ash house brand (like Carlo Robelli) that is actually made by Peerless in Korea.

The pickguard shapes look like Peerless, so I'm inclined to believe it.

What Parabar said. I played that exact model when they had one at the Sam Ash in Hollywood, and it was pretty nice, though a little pricey at the time (I think they wanted about $800 for it without a case), and it wasn't a real guitar (because it didn't have a Bigsby).

Thanks, I gave 200.00 for this one w/ a nice case, but as you said no bigsby :(

I'd have dropped two bills on it quickly, too. And another buck and a half for a Bigsby, then that'd be a real nice guitar. But for that dough, without a Bigsby it's still a darn nice.

$200 w/ a case. You got a deal. Slap a Bigsby on that bad boy!
