UK - 1979 Reborn LS120

In as good condition as you will ever find, practically mint! Old Sunburst, not the usual Cherry, upgraded pots & pickups (Peter Florance Voodoo's) original circuit board but no original pickips. Original Brown Tokai hard case.

Will post pics later tonight looking for ?2500

I've had quite a few Les Pauls, some heavy and some light and they all sound 'different', but IMO there are too many other factors to consider (hardware, pickups, construction), and the way a guitar sounds is a sum of all of these so it's really difficult to say what effect weight alone has.

And now that I've played it for a while, the frets are also a lot lower than I normally like.
I needs to be played :) A re-fret and one of these

Well, I think of SDs as solid, affordable, pickups - without being super special. And I've had many SD pickups that I've liked, and I've just sent a pair of Antiquities taken out of a Johan Gustavsson to be put into another guitar (that had cheap humbuckers in it). I prefer Florance Voodoos to SDs,...

I still have my One Night at the Budokan CD, so maybe I should try to pose outside the Budokan with it for a nostalgia photo?

In full Schenker pose I hope, would like to see a pic of that :)

See you still have the guarentee card, you could send it back ;)

Agree with Villager, unless your luthier is confident, don't mess with it

There are huge differences in the Japanese squier models, some of the cheaper/later ones have plywood bodies and rubbish pickups, so ?160 may not be the bargain it seems. Try and do some research first

That seems like a decent deal, never played a Swart, but they get really good write-ups, and it'll certainly take up less space :)
