Jim, this Focus 6000 is the equivalent to the American Pacer Custom I. A Focus 1000 would be the same as a Baretta.
Nick, most don't realize that about the only difference in the Focus model over the American models are mainly 2 things. The head stock does not have the American script on the logo. And the Focus models have cheaper pickups than the American ones.
Other than that they are almost identical neck and body wise. Depending on years of production there are slight differences in the body shape between the Focus and American models. But its very slight!
Focus models have solid wood bodies too. AND just like many of the later American models, the Focus models were made by ESP as well.
So basically just about any of the Focus models can be had for $300 or less. Spend a few bucks on pup upgrades and you have a awesome axe!
NOTE: I am talking about the 1000 series in the Focus line only.
79' Gibson Les Paul Custom SilverBurst Not to many of these around. They had a flaw that the silver greened or yellowed over time. It apparently gave the guitar amazing tone. Adam Jones of Tool owns 5 of these and says its the only good Gibsons he has played because they're flawed.
