Could you please post you Serial-Number?

Then i can be 100% sure my guitar is a LS150 too.

:)
From the description I don't think there is any doubt that it is a LS150 but for what its worth mine is a 2005 LS150 VF serial number 0509449.

This guitar looks identical to my 2005 LS150, slightly thicker than usual binding, colour or the inlays etc and the serial number is only 14 out from mine. Could you please post some photos? and does it have nitro? Try this : http://www.tokaiforum.com/viewtopic.php?t=5210&postdays=0&postorder=asc&s...

Don't take this the wrong way, but if the top was a laminate I'd expect a little more flame. This guitar looks identical to my 2005 LS150, slightly thicker than usual binding, colour or the inlays etc and the serial number is only 14 out from mine. Hard to see from the photos but the wire may be mis...

Don't be too concerned that your Love Rock isn't considered to be the same quality as the Japanese models. The latter are very high quality indeed and your LS50 should be more than good enough to keep you entertained during your first few years of learning the instrument. Beginners/Far East manufact...

Bridge height/neck angle

Hi All Just out of curiousity .. When I received my 2005 LS150 I noticed that the guitar seemed to 'wrap around' my body more than my LS65 as if the neck angle was greater. Recently I've been setting them up using the very useful capo on the 7th fret method (with capo on the seventh fret adjust the ...

Peter's old Les Paul is now owned by Gary Moore another great guitarist from England. And I'd also like to challenge the claim that Moore is a "great" guitarist. Loud, yes, great, no.... :evil: Mike I'm not gonna challenge the claim of his "greatness", just the claim that he's from England. :lol: H...

Just to add to the previous post, the neck shapes on my Love Rocks (LS65 and LS150) feel completely different. The 65 always felt like a slim 60s style to me and the 150's is a thick 50's baseball bat. Just out of curiosity I recently measured them and they are identical (within fractions of a mm) i...

Hi there. I have two Love Rocks - a LS65 with Gotoh MkIIs and a 2005 LS150 which the UK distributor lists as having 'custom PAFs or Wilkinson' pups. I don't have the equipment to measure the pickups but levels through a VU meter show the LS150s pups as having a little more output than the MKIIs. Sub...

OK smurf you have a predicament. In your original post you suggested (a) putting humbuckers in your strat (b) paying ?1300 for a LP. There's an awful lot of middle ground in between. Does it have to be a Les Paul or LP replica or is it just the mahogany/humbucker sound you are after? If the latter t...
