Looks like it was refinished at some point, no? It's from 1980 so it's been around but the top looks a little cloudy in spots.

Did LS120s have veneer tops?

My 1981 was a veneer top but should be highly flamed and lacquer finish. That looks too shiny IMHO.

Not sure what the seller is asking for but that refinish cut the value of the guitar in half IMHO.
