I call upon ye lurkers of /mu/
Can anyone help me identify this particular models name and worth (and anything else honestly)
Someone proposed a trade for it for a Les paul studio I have
Can't find a damn thing on the web so I turn to you all
Most likely one of many budget guitars of the 60's and 70's manufactured in Japan. I had a Gibson 335 clone Univox myself. They're neat and I actually really like them, but they're worth almost nothing. Get cash on top of it if you really want it.

The electronics WILL be shit. There's no way around that. Dime sized pots and shoddy wiring and all that. They're really fun guitars to fix up and upgrade however.
its a national, its not japanese
well nationals are known for their resonator guitars, which are fairly pricey. that looks 60s to me. probably not worth a ton but probably more than most of the super cheap jap guitars of the era
I'm completely guessing but I think it could be a budget version of the Supro Lexington by National/Valco or a rebuilt Supro Lexington. The reasons for this being:
1. It has 1 pickup and it doesn't look like the typical pickup that National would use anyway
2. It has a different shaped head than the standard Supro.
Unless its some super-rare National with a tiny production run you SHOULD NOT TRADE. The guitar is very basic looking and probably only worth like 125 bucks.
