NGD - 1980 Reborn Old LS-80

Post by mattbarlow » Sat Aug 19, 2017 1:22 am

2 days ago I got my hands on my first LS80.
It is Old Sunburst in very good/near mint condition...frets have plenty of meat... just very few marks, last fret marked "80" ...nibs... etc ...all well!

It feels very nice to play (haven't had the time to change strings plus I' ve cut my left index finger so I haven't played it as much as I d like to)

It's a plain top for sure!!

PS: in some of the photos my 81 LS60 might appear ;)

Both are lovely, really liking the look of that tobacco burst on the right though. Very Kosoff!

Congrats for the guitar matt!

I own a Reborn LS80 from '79 since 10 years ago very similar to yours, mine has a 3'85 kg. which is perfect. These are very rare and collectable. How does it sound?
