Love rock from 79 ?

I thought Love Rocks did not start before 1980 while 79 guitars came with Reborn and early 80s Reborn Old on the headstock ?

To be honest I would expect to find ls-50 written in the cavity of this guitar but not eg-70 what more belongs to a Greco ?

was probably designated as a guitar for greco originally hence the stamp, but then decided to badge it as a tokai instead...
