Forget it... It really has become my main guitar during the last weeks while testing pickups etc.

What did you have to do, neck adjustment, string height etc. or something else like new frets? By the way, welcome to the forum and congratulations again for your steal!

Hello, thanks !
nice to meet maniacs like me talkin away on old guitars!!

I had to do a big TLC Job, and in the end this little beast has turned into a beautiful swan. Came with original hard case (the brown one with pink interieur) and original warranty card.

Plugged in this baby screams and easily blew away my 76' Ibanez Les Paul Custom ( Mod 2650 set neck with Rio Grande Pafs) and even my friend's 2002 LS80 Goldtop!

What Kind of PUs are normally built into a 82' LS 120 ?? They sound fantastic...!!!

Further questions ....!!

The registry says 100's had Dimarzio PAF's and the 150 had a Dimarzio PAF and a Super D. Doesn't mention the 120??

I'm absolutely no help

Yes, I know what you mean...

On yours and togps' pictures both have covers, so it's probably not DiMarzio, but either Seymour Duncan '59 or Tokai (= Gotoh) PAFs. Though QuattroSte is right, because this is the info you can also draw from the "Early Tokai models" catalogue in English on the main site which seems to have been printed in 1986. There is a Japanese catalogue version from 1981, too, where the LS 120 is listed, but I can't figure out what pickups they mention there. My LS 120 from 1981 didn't have the original pickups either, because the first owner had put them into his Gibson Heritage and swapped them with its Shaw PAFs which sound very good, too. Do you have an ohm meter to measure their impedance perhaps? Or did you take them out yet and look at the bottom base plate?

Interesting, so they came with covers? Usually old DiMarzio pickups don't have covers, so I thought they may be Seymour Duncans. Did you take them out at same time? Anyhow, since they both have normal pole pieces, these should be both PAFs then (great pickup in my opinion), not Super Distortions with hex pole pieces.
