Love Rock Truss Rod Cover Changes?

Post by Sigmania » Mon Feb 22, 2021 4:07 pm

Hi all,

I bought my 1981 LS100S used and it has a bell type TRC on it. I had assumed it was incorrect since the other LS100S's I have seen had the pointy type, but another one of me Love Rocks have this same type of TRC. Possibly also replaced with the Gibson bell type?

What models, and what period did Love Rocks have the pointy type TRC?

Here is the Gibson bell type one on my 1981 LS100S that I assumed was incorrect.

Any thoughts?

Thanks!

1981 Love Rock (and forward through the 1980s) should have the 'pointy' TRC, as original
'holier than thou cuntiness' was originally exported to the entire planet from the land of rocks and trees aka Cadada, and now the entire solar system is infected :lol:
