Well I got some really funny news regarding this case :lol: After I saw the cavity pics here yesterday I left the seller this message in ebay :

I wonder why you offer this guitar as a LS-320 if you should clearly know without fret edge binding and with 200 written in the cavity that it is a 200 only ? Further I wonder why you are asking the price for a 320 if you must know it is a 200 ??? Will inform ebay about that fraud...

Last night the answer came in and I am still laughing now :

Glatzkopfiger Bastard. Kummere Dich um Deine eigenen Anglegenheiten und bleib wo Du Dich auskennst. Kaufe 2 Dollar Autoteile fur Deinen scheib Porsche. Leckmich am Arsch, Glatze!
My German is a bit rough. Basically, what we say in America is go (*&) off.
Thanks, Gary

here's the translation for his not so bad german part :

Bald bastard.Take care of your own business and stay where you are at home.Buy 2 dollar parts for your bl00dy Porsche.Kiss my arse baldy.

Gary 's pissed I guess ;-)

I never expected such a reasonable price for such a handbuild guitar from a very small one man company.It is worth to ask for an offer from a local luthier.You might be surprised.

Maybe the longtime members are tired to explain the same things over and over again ? I mean the search functionn seems to be not very popular and instead of using it and the registry it seems to me that almost every newbie is asking the same questions.Might be a reason but the huge amount of inform...

If I only had the money :cry: This is an amazing guitar for a really decent price.I had a ls-100 reborn from 1979 once and miss her still today.The woody tone combined with the dimarzio Pafs was fantastic.

I should have mentioned that the seller with the 3-hole bobbin set also sold 2 more sets recently, all with non-original covers. Not conclusive evidence, but there are tons of Maxon/Fujigen pickups out there to use if a person wanted to make a few sets. All they would need is a similar "Z" and numb...

The good wood has all gone due to mass production.What you get today and even worse for a ridiculous price is fresh wood dried in a chamber in one day and still so heavy that they drill holes and chambers in it.They still live from the glory of more than 50 years ago. Recently sold one Greco EGF to ...
