Found an Avenger in a single cutaway style. Sunburst finish. Four knobs and one toggle switch laid out like a Les Paul.

Have never heard of or seen a single cut before. Any help?

I'm gonna say it's not a Mosrite despite what it says on the headstock.

Certainly not an official Mosrite; Reason 1: "Avenger" is a name some Japanese companies used for their unofficial Mosrite copies or clones; Reason 2: Mosrite never made any exact Les Paul copies; they did, however, make some Les Paul inspired guitars (which are the Blues Bender, Brass Rail and S.M. models.) This guitar may just be a case where someone stuck a Mosrite copy's neck on a Les Paul copy because they preferred the Mosrite neck.

Also, Welcome to the forum.
