Love Rock Goldtop - 2008 ?

Post by -Alan- » Thu Jan 23, 2020 3:45 am

This gold top is for sale near me:

Some debate as to whether it's an LS75 or an LS110.

Anybody able to advise which is most likely ?

Thanks,
Alan

impossible to tell from such poor pics but the difference was only minimal anyway, I would put my money on LS75 by the pickups, so if it's what you want and the price is right 8)

At the risk of spamming the forum with yet more Love Rock Goldtops...

P90s, one piece back, but a much lighter finish on the neck and back than I've seen before. Might make a good base for a mini-humbucker Tokai Goldtop LP Deluxe conversion (but not at the price). The 'Made in Japan' sticker looks a bit odd though.

Any views on whether it's legit, or a bit suspect ?

P90 Goldtop looks like 2 piece back to me.

Which one do you reckon is bang on the money - the humbuckered one at €650 euro ($720USD) or the p90 bearing one at £895UK ($1175USD) ?
