1960s Japanese Noble Thunderball
This Noble Thunderball, to my mind, has the appearance of being the archetype 1960s Japanese generic guitar. It's like someone took a random selection of vintage Japanese guitar parts and bolted them all together. I think I've seen each of these elements - the body, the neck, the pickup, the bridge, the control plate - on numerous other guitars from the same era.

The action doesn't look too good so it probably plays like a dog, but its single pickup lends it an air of Les Paul Junior menace.

Looks cool, but probably isn't!
