LS180 Limited Edition in 1984 catalog?

Post by jacco » Fri Jun 10, 2011 6:29 am

This is supposed to be a part of the 1984 catalog. A LS180, is this right?

It's a part of this ebay auction:

Very interesting - never seen that page from the 1984 catalog before.

Here's a shameless pic of my '84 LS150 (I guess it's a 150, no markings).

Yeah, according to that part of the catalog that could also be a 200.. It says Limited Edition btw in this catalog.
Mark has his 1984 quilt top designated as a 150 but it has the same factory installed Grovers as the one in the Ebay auction and also no sticker. Maybe he knows..

Thanks for the compliments fellas! Mine has Grovers too (pat. pend.), but it had Klusons originally. I'm biased, but I like my top better than Gottfried's LS200...

Have you ever heard of Limited Editions or a LS180 from the mid 80s Mark?

I've never come accross an 84 LS180. There was a newer special order LS180 which Mick "leadguitar_323" has shown before on the forum. Howver, I'm sure Gottfried knows his stuff.

The blister top reminds me of this LS200 from 81 which should also have the cashew finish.

Which period for that LS180 are you talking about?
