Identify Tokai Love Rock LS-50 80‘s

Post by Abi » Fri Oct 30, 2020 7:09 am

Is this a real love rock 80‘s LS-50. Due to neck crack there is no serial number visible. How to identify if all is original ? Which year could this be? Thanks for the answers. ... 2f255e2c34

The pictures are too blurred to tell really.
There looks to be a number stamped on the fretboard 22nd fret, this will be the model number. Love rock model is mid 80's onward, neck stamp is upto mid 80's, ser# was on an oval sticker.

Wasn't "Love Rock" begins mid year 1980 and model number fretboard stamp stopped around that time?
Serial number usually impressed (or a few LS50/60 ink stamped) back of headstock, model number sometimes on an oval sticker?
Most LS50 were 3 piece tops.
I'm no expert, I just play the wonderful things. :D
I heard they threatened Tokai with a lawsuit, but they never got to Cort?
