For ages Ive been wondering why my goldstar has this pattern engraving on it. Recently I spotted a similar engraving on a 2006 Gibson Granada. Do you think someone was trying to copy the gibson style on this goldstar flange?

That's a Mastertone, it must be a Goldtone lol sorry could not resist that one.
Yes indeed I think someone wanted a Gibson. Engraved parts are expensive.

The Granada engraving is not typically seen on a Granada. I imagine it's custom or aftermarket

That looks vaguely like one of the "standard" engraving patterns in the old First Quality parts catalog. Not a Gibson pattern. Granada flanges were not engraved anyway.
