Re: Bacchus Live Road Handmade Series - Price redux

Beautiful guitars. Just wanted to add that this reminds me of Martin guitars, and the belief that over many years the template that they used to cut the necks became worn from use and over time the corners on the headstock became more and more rounded without them apparently realizing it. Whether t...

Re: "Reborn Old" Reborn

Interesting to note that on a couple of these Guitar Planet Reborn Old guitars that they seemed to hold them for a year or two before they sold with the sale date on the warranty card. So the orders were placed before they had buyers it seems. I have a 2000 LS Love Rock that has the date of sale at...

Re: Bacchus Live Road Handmade Series - Price redux

OP's Bacchus, my BLS-DX, and many other Live Road Model examples from the 101*** serial range have the 'incomplete' dimple at the top of the open book head stock. I saw a comment on another forum that touched on the subject and when I read the comment I didn't know if I should cringe or LOL. Here i...

Re: Bacchus Live Road Handmade Series - Price redux

I have an example that is very close to the serial number range and my example is obviously a transition era for the BLS Live Road examples. It has attributes of the (earlier) BLS-120 examples that were most typically inked with the 100*** serial # range and and it also has attributes of the (later)...

Possibly a solid flame top?

from what little I can see from the two top photos that looks more like a solid top than veneer; at least to my eyes and from my experience.

Re: Momose Gold Top P90s

that's a fairly early MLS; too bad it is 9 2/3 lb. or it might sell much quicker

I have an earlier MLS that weighs 8 1/3 lb.; it's a real peach :D

Re: 1982 LS80 BB

Re: LS200 Gallery

one thing I find very interesting about the 200s posted here, and I have seen this in other examples, is that about half of the examples show a maple top that does not look book matched but seems to have more of a flitch matched character, which I really like much more than a true book matched look.
