MIJ-VINTAGE " run far away" run far away from what ? I think its a 1981, and if it is a 1991, its still a great guitar ! As a matter of fact, ONLY the HIGHER-END ($1000 models ) in 1991 had F-E-B.

Hi - This is my guitar, its a excellent guitar, I always thought it was a 1981, it came with the double trick pickups, and i was getting low-ball offers, so i though I would sell the double trick's seperately. Like I said it did have FRET-Edge-binding, I dont think the 1991 had F-E-B ? I give people...

bluethird " contradiction in terms" that is exactly why I asked the question? " ls80 or ls60" ----- the 3 pc back is a big contradiction. I will load up some more photos, but I am telling you, ( its got a 18deg. headstock, and had F-E-B,before the refret, is that not a ls80?) One other thing the nec...

So i guess the question is what model ? I say ls80 with a 3 piece back. I cut a piece of cardboard at 14 deg, and 18 deg, and its definitely a 18 deg. headstock.

Hi people, thanks for all the info. I will get some photos up soon, but to answer some of your questions, I am not a newbe to m-i-j guitars, I have had close to 60 m-i-j gibson les paul copies, ( burnys' tokai's, greco's, aria's, etc. ) . I am very familiar with how good tokai matches there veeners ...
