Has anybody else ever seen or heard of a mid-1960s Crownn guitar? i have one, it says Crown on the headstock where "gibson" would be, and was painted and outfitted like a Les Paul Gold-top. Gold hardware, black-pick-guard. My cousin gave it to me when i was 15 and he says he got it in 1966 new. it's in pretty good shape, and i' have been trying to find one like it with no success. does this guitar exist?

This is a little off the IQ troubleshooting topic, but in the 1970s, there was a line of guitars from Japan labeled "Crown" that were more notably known for inexpensive  classical guitars. They may be from the same company.
