Hi Mike, in the earlier catalogues i have all the Korean models {LP} were either plywood or Alder, the Korean SG's were Nato, no mention of Agathis at all...

Seconded.

Rob, save your money mate. Scrape together a bit more dosh and buy a Made In Japan. You won't regret it I swear.

I bought my 2004 LS75F (Now an LS90F I think?) for ?330 including case, and it's mint. It's a wonderful guitar to play and I never get tired of picking it up. I'd never sell it.

There are bargains to be had, if you're patient, careful, and you ask questions before bidding.

Good Luck!

Graham.



Just got back in from a business trip, sorry for the late reply guys! Many thanks for everyone's inputs. Looks like I'll be on the look out on ebay for a better deal. As everyone has said, you guys are right it will be much more worth it. I'm really glad getting some advice from this forum. For now, I'll be keeping my fingers crossed and hopefully when I find the "right" goldtop, I will definitely update you guys on it.

Many thanks again and best regards to all =)

Rob

Hey Rob, you may want to check out guitar forums too along with eBay. Lots of guitars for sale cuz posting is free. I found a really nice OBG Goldtop at The Gear Page through referral from a poster here. Be careful though and get references, and pay by credit card so you can do a chargeback if the guitar doesn't arrive. Fortunately, most folks I've dealt with have been very good people.

How many private individuals selling guitars on here have the facility to accept credit card payments? I don't.

Yes I did, the frets are a little worn (dimples) on the B and G from 1st to 7th fret, but it plays beautifully. Took some getting used to the tone though. I love the sound of my LS100, and used to wish every guitar sounded like it, but that would be boring. Tweaked some knobs and found some great tones with it. The back of the neck is silky smooth, overall; very impressed with OBG.

If you have a Paypal account, you have the option to pay by credit card, as long as the seller has a Paypal account too. I probably wouldn't buy if the seller doesn't have a Paypal account. Thanks Mike, I should have mentioned that .

It's usually accompanied with a shoulder shrug...maybe "Bah" in non-gamer lingo?

I though the French had copyright on The Shoulder Shrug? Nobody does it quite like they do.

Speaking of Korean, know what the Fakai's LP's and PRS's (Dillion) are made from? If we're going to dismiss these as inferior, it would still be interesting to know what they're specs are, whether we want one or not, for guys on a budget. Might even take some inflation from the real deal...
