Chief Chaos Sigma Guitars (797* d) RE: sigma guitar 25 Apr 06

I've been all over the place looking for information.
I have a Picador (Sigma) hollow body accoustic electric.
Aside from the Picador medallion (covering badly damaged gold lettering (SIGMA) and the pearloid Greek letter sigma on the headstock there are no other marks at all!

Double cutaway;
2-single coil pickups;
vibrato (not M or V);
2-black tophat knobs (1 volume the other tone) one located on the left side of the f hole the other on the right;
Garish red and yellow pick guard that is screwed directly to the body;
2 white on/off switches on the pick guard;
Body is dark brown, solid front and back and seems to be laminate;
Body is bound top, bottom and neck with what appears to be ivory but is probably plastic;
Three on a side tuners, chromed metal;
Neck seems to be bolt-on;
m.o.p. dot inlays on fingerboard (can't tell what kind of wood)

The only other information I can provide is that I purchased it at auction in Wilmington, N.C. sometime between 1994-1996. That close to Camp LeJeune I'm pretty sure it is Japanese or Korean. I don't really care how much it's worth. I'd just like to know what year, make and model. Please Help!

I'll post pictures as soon as I read the FAQ on how to do so.
