I bought a love rock last year with a S/N beginning with 30..... Is it right that it is from 1983 ? To what i found out it must be a LS 50. If anybody has an idea, please let me know.

Thanks Wolfram

Sounds like a 1983 model.

Yes, it?s 1983 :) .

Take a look in the Registry (on this Forum;- go to ?Announcements? & click ?Sticky Links of Interest?, then click the link to ?Tokai Information & Dating?, then select ?Gibson Copies?);- as you?ll see:- from 1980 to 89, the first digit gives the year & the second digit is always zero. Or put it another way:- if you have a Love Rock with serial number Y0xxxxx then it was made in year ?Y?, ie year ?198Y?.

If it?s an LS50 it should have a solid maple top with plain grain in three unmatched sections (LS60 & upwards got a 2-piece top) :-? .
