Hi guys.
It's my first post here with my LS200. Pictures are taken in different conditions so color looks different but she is in good condition including cashew lacquer.

Nice meeting you all.

Wow! Great first post.
I'm terribly jealous. I'll just have to be content with my LS150.

Welcome!

LS150 is more rare than LS200 in a way!
What year is it?

That thing is a beauty! I'm not exactly loving the "clown" sunburst, but then I'm sure real bursts looked equally as tacky when they were brand new - which is exactly what this one appears to be. Nice score, Super jealous!

Hi. I've posted more pictures on the same site.

https://box.yahoo.co.jp/guest/viewer?sid=box-l-jl4dkite534np2oq54vykh7xoa-1001&uniqid=abfa9ff1-bbc8-401e-a880-556a0f3fb5db

It is cashew lacquer. I have owned another LS200 and it was the same. I have no doubt about that.

She weights about 4.4KG so she is a bit heavy but sounds wonderful. I have owned LS150(3.9kg) and LS200 (4.2kg) but this one is best sounding. I am not sure if it has to do with the weight.

As for the 200 sticker on the back of the head, it is long gone and can't even see the left over. However, I have the original warranty card stating the serial number and grade (LS200 VCS) so this is LS200 made in 1981.

Thanks!
