Thanks Hot Rod, no case. Sorry.

Yep, the time for bargains is over. I also would like to spend my holidays for some days in the French alps.

Should I trade in your dirty and awful LS120?

Alright, togps!!

I wasn't jokin, but do you resolve your collection, 'cause this lady looks like polished and shoeshined!

What happenend to that Love Rock II?

After some time playin' that LS 120 of yours I must admit that its rinkles and dings attracted me so much, I simply can't be without.....


...are you experienced?

September is the best month for vacation in the French alps ( no bloody mass tourists there)!!

Take care!

does the description say weather or not the pickups are original?? Don't look original to me at least all the '78 and 79 models I have had didn't have soldiered pickup covers and had all (ls50's-60's) Gotoh marked pickups???
Mike
Sure is sweet looking thought- I'd jump on her if she had fretedge binding and demarzios-the top is primo !!!

I don't know if there were Gotoh pickups with covers, too, but the '78 and '79 catalogs might show some on the lower end models. And togps mentions that all parts are original with a COA.

I'm interested if we can take that explanation for granted that the serial number 9000107 reveals this would be No. 107 of all Reborns built in 1979. Do you have that information directly from Tokai, togps? And is this true for all Love Rocks throughout the years, too? That would be very interesting and should be added to the main site if it isn't yet.

Oh, one last thing: I still would prefer a brand new LS320 over this one for the same price...

Very nice looking guitar (great photos) . Again I notice those pearloid looking tuner pegs,..maybe I?m seeing those on early Reborns rather than slightly later Love rocks? On the pickups I haven?t noticed the ?X? before, are they Gotoh?s? Also the switch-tip which is white (as on Gstormcrow?s recent acquisition), ?again those are almost always ?browned out? on early Tokai LS, but maybe white tips were original on earliest Reborns? Do I see a retainer wire on the bridge, & is the wire original fitting? Is that COA original 1979? Nice model stamps to id cherry burst colour & model ?LS60CS?. Just thinking out aloud on that stuff.

Hans...know what you mean, but if it were LS80 Reborn vs new 320 then I'd be more tempted by Reborn LS80 (especially at lower price). Think I could do pretty good with LS60 though,... just personal opinion I know .

Ian.

I know your personal opinion, because you've stated it quite often in similar threads. Mine is different (as I've stated in other threads), because at a comparable price I would always go for the Love Rock with the "higher" specs, no matter if it's old or new. The reason why I mentioned it in this thread is that togps wrote in his ebay auction that "the pros on Tokairegistry prefer old Reborns to new LS320". Maybe it's just that I'm not a pro...

Ha, ?OK I see, so Togs thinks smart guys like the old ones lol . Well, I just like older things in general (not just guitars). But actually I think most experienced guys would agree with YOU about the LS320. I think Loverocker ended up preferring new LS320 (though I think he may now be partially converted to 1955 Gibbo GT, yikes!) ? I think Palladin also prefers new LS200 & 320.

Ian.
Ps:- Palladin where are you, haven?t seen you around for a while. You OK mate?

Right, and if you want to be the ?ber-Pro smart guy, you only care for 1979 Reborn LS200...

Hot Rod, err, I've no vacation in September.

GStormcrow, AAAAAARGHHH!!
my parcel with your Reborn comes back. German mail seems not so safe....



Ha, ha, hey, GStormcrow, relax.. just a bad joke. Sorry.

Only a nice example about the high sophisticated tone woods of an Epiphone guitar.

hans-j?rgen, re serial no. I'll let you know asasp.

Ian, re, Is that COA original 1979?
No!
re, pearloid looking tuner pegs and switch-tip.
Making pics, it's a science for it's self. Bright items appear brighter then they are, and dark ones, even darker as they are.

The reason I ask is that I noticed on my Love Rocks (and the two from my friend) the last number on the right side looks like it has been imprinted with a different stamp than the first numbers, maybe manually like it would be part of the numbering process.

Sure, it's not even flamed, and I always want to do my personal aging to my new Tokais... Which brings me to another point: most of the forum members who praise those old Reborns these days obviously want to get rid of them for the highest possible price, so newbies beware! But I think with US $299.00 (with reserve) you chose a good starting bid, so ebayers can make up their own mind.

By the way, I might take off a mint 1979 LS200 Reborn from you in favor of a new LS320 if you sell it.
