Hi Ron,

This is indeed an LS-70-GT from very late 1981. The Model Year 1982 began production usually around October 1981. The serial number is from very late 1981 ( 1014000) as they finished aroun ...

Hi guys,

This is a pretty nice guitar but some of the details are incorrect . .
The model is a TST-55 SO (Sonic Blue) not Daphne Blue. The wiring, pickups and scratchplate are all 100% ; the nec ...

By jove, Luis, they look exactly the same . . exacto.
Muchas gracias, mi amigo.

This Explorer needs some electrical work as it's all been messed with.
For pickups I'm thinking Tim Shaw PAF and B ...

PostForum: Vintage (Older than 1985)   Posted: Tue Aug 01, 2017 8:12 pm   Subject: Is It a ST60 or a ST80?
OK cool,
It should have either 'E' or 'V' stamped grey bobbin pickups - most likely 'E'.
Check the body and neck stamps are the same and the neck should have a Rosewood fingerboard to match the L13 ...

Hi guys,

I took the liberty of downloading the body and enlarging it several times and I noticed a few things more about the grain that leads me to the conclusion it is Alder and not Sen Ash as I ...

Hi guys,
good discussion here . . .

The Sunburst TST-50 YSO is possibly from 1984 as most 1983 models still had 'U' pickups left. The neck however is a post-1985 that has been swapped for the or ...

Woah guitar hiro, TE-75NR would be extremely rare - even rarer than the ES-200 considering it was never made . . .
As this ash body has no body binding as per TE-70 and the fact that Natural was not ...

Hi guys,

This appears to be a 1980 SS-48 OW made in Japan.
Body will be Alder, pickups are genuine, transition single coils (before they put 'S' and 'H' stamps on them), routing is original. The c ...

Hi guys,

This is not a TE-85 or at least the body isn't.
Do you have a pic of the neck heel showing the stamp?
And a close up of the bridge too please. What is the serial number as this will hel ...

Hi everyone,

I pulled these pickups out of a 1983 Gibson Korina Explorer and must admit I've never seen them before.
The wiring is Japanese and they both have a solitary stamp inside a circle on ...

Hi guys,

this is NOT an LS-80 from any Year. It is most likely a TLS-50 from 88 or later. LS-60 and LS-80 from 1985 both have flame veneer tops - this one does not and only TLS-50 had a plain top. ...
