The headstock of an MG-154 will always look like this:




The fingerboard of an MG-154 will always be EBONY....not Rosewood.....not Maple:



When the body of the guitar is viewed from any side, a 3/8 inch maple cap will be obvious through the clear coat finish:

Wow! What a killer fat maple cap you got on that. Jealous. Does it have a fatty neck profile? When Grover Jackson took over the custom shop (circa 1994) he had most all USA guitars made with baseball bats for necks. A couple years later they slimmed them down a bit. I believe this guitar with the pointy-ish head stock is pre-Grover though. He brought in the sock stock - which is one of my favorite head stock designs.

This one, and I believe most, of the MG-154s and MG-142s have a standard slim " D " style neck profile. ( commonly called  slim "D")

As you suggested, these two models are pre-Grover Jackson builds....

Always nice to see an actual cap rather than the usual "pretty pretty!" veneer.  ::)

I've been a fan of the "D" shape since '74 when I got my Univox High Flyer (still have it, too). It got pushed aside for years because of the "thinner is faster" nonsense.
