If you have a Japanese made Ibanez Les Paul copy or Artist Hallow body and would like to sale please post picture and price.!!!!!

I don't know why Gibson sued them.

ebay    would be  one of your  best     bets  for the rocker switches  ,,  but  a  good   cleaning  ,, and  maybe  bending the thin  metal  strip  contacts  back into shape  usually    does  the job  . most  you  will  find  on   ebay  are either the  same condition  ,,  or   just   cleaned and   readjusted anyway . 

those  tuners doooo  look  like a close match . ;-)

Gitty's new Vintage Style tuners:

Comment by Maddog on March 27, 2014 at 12:11am

I think the new Vintage Style tuners that Gitty has will work for the replacement tuners, funny thing is I will have to order 2 sets as there are 4 tuners on top and 2 on bottom. :-/

I knew I came to the right place for answers :-) 

Thanks everyone and in particular you Pick, you da man!!!

I took it out to the cabin earlier tonight and plugged it in and it sounds amazing, even with the crap strings on it and a broken tuner.

The pots were not scratchy and all were in working order which was surprising, about the only thing I need to do right away is replace the 2 toggle switches for the pickups. Is there somewhere I can find those???

that too  .  belltone , i  believe,   is  the  name for the     Canadian  sears  import  teiscos    ..  and a tiesco  Canadian  amp   import name also. 

"checkmate"  guitars    are also  the canadian  import  name ..

taht is a tiesco belltone

Comment by the anonymous pick on March 26, 2014 at 6:20pm

the 1432  was  an  in store  sears  branded    "silvertone  "  by  teisco .  not available  in  catalogs   . sears  version  of  the  mj-2l    teisco  .

the  striped      guard   dates  it  after  65  .

 the  knobs   and bridge  on  yours  are not  original  .  

it's a teisco  ,   

it's a   silvertone  ,

  it's a sears  . 

and  its  cool  .  should  have  a  perfect   blusey   slide   tone  .  = yum yum .

hope that  helps  ;-)
