Where is the problem?
Ask the seller for a pic. Otherwise forget it.

Then I guess you can reasonably think there's something up.

Mark,

I agree ... it's not expensive - but something must be fishy ... perhaps he's playing with the fact that nobody can know exactly what it is actually ... 8) 8) 8) 8)

A Reborn / Old would be cheap ... a Love Rock in not original condition not so much ... :-? :-? :-?

So - if someone did remove the model name he usually wants to hide something ... and as it is not original I would suggest ... beware !!

the last battered reborn sold last week in Japan for just under 200000 yen...

http://page11.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/n54229584

so thats ?884 plus ?60 shipping plus 23% =?1160...without any intermediaries fees....

so in my opinion, that makes that one cheap whether its a reborn / old / or a love rock.....

prices are continuing to rise in japan for the top end rareities, and will continue to do so...

I still think there is a logo on the headstock ..if you have seen as many as I have then you wouldn't believe how faded some are....

it would be great if a german speaking member (roger?) could ask him for a clear pic, and explain that no one will bid without knowing what the headstock says....

Mark,

an all original LS120Reborn was offered to me for 1145 GBP from Japan ... local German taxes and fees additional ... on 2006 already ...

So you can't say that the prices are equal whether it's a Reborn/Old or Love Rock ... they did check our hunting after specialties already and raise up the prices merciless ... 8) 8) 8) 8)

Doesn't it look like somebody did some "refreshing" with PaintshopPro??? The middle of the headstock looks too black to me.

Well, the answer of the seller was: he is sure that it is an old Tokai.. :o
Didn't answer questions about the cavity or fret binding, but wanted to show some more pictures in a few days......
