Love Rock 1011769 - can you please identify the model number

Post by sneakypeete » Thu Mar 30, 2006 10:05 am

Hi there Folks,

I'm the market to purchase a love rock with the serial number of 1011xxx. this means that the guitar should be a 1981 model. It sounds waaaaaaay better than any Les paul Standard or Custom that was in the store so i would like to get it.

But i would like to know the model number.

is it possible for anyone to identify the model number based on the serial number.

Or do you absolutely need photos?


Thanks in advance for your help.

unfortunately i don't have photos. But it is a Tokai Love rock from 81 and it sounds great. It's selling at a second hand shop for about $1000US.

Do you think that that is a good price.

Also do you know what models of love rock were made in 81. that way i can get some kind of idea?


Thanks,


Pierre

Hey guys,

a little tricky this one so lets see if we cant get some guidelines.
1) what is the color? Black, gold = LS50, LS70
2) is there any flame? LS120,150,200
3) sunburst type = LS50, LS60, LS80, LS100 (but not LS70)
4) pickup covers = open LS50 & LS100

these should help narrow the 1981 models down to 1 or 2 possibilities, then you look at the mahogany on the back and neck and the 'dishing' of the top. If possible , get the shop to take out a pickup and get its markings
