Doesn't the 'OS' in the pickup cavity mean 'Old Sunburst'?

I had 2 ULS150s made in 2005. Definitely no fret edge binding (has anyone ever seen a non-vintage LS150 with FEB?). and both 1 piece backs. This guitar looks like a 1 piece back to me.

Well Sat seems to want to bring attention to this mess again.

If it was me I definitely wouldn't want that.

You know, the term anorak had me puzzled for awhile because I know it as a winter coat... so I was mildly amused by his hopeful insult: Yes Marcus. But as an insult it refers to the type of person who wears an anorak. Train and plane spotters fort example. Anoraks usually have lots of pockets to ke...

While I agree that it looks like veneer I see nothing clear enough in these
photos to prove this conclusively. The sections that we need to see are out
of focus. However the opinions given above are from people with far greater
experience and knowledge than I have.

koiz is not the one that started talking about samurai honor, he just responded to it. Buyer hurt the authority of the samurai is my roots. Sato responded to this by stating that 'authority of the samurai is my roots'. I interpret this to mean he has samurai honor (Bushido) himself. In that case co...

I have experience of these Tokais:

1999 LS-320 - Similar neck to my LP Custom Lite and LP Supreme - I believe that is 60's slim taper.

1985 LS-60 - Neck similar to my LP custom - Slightly chunkier than 60's neck

2005 LS150 - Much chunkier than 60's neck although not a baseball bat.
