I have recently purchased a used Love Rock.
It's 8 digit serial number is 09100129 in 2mm tall gold script top of rear head, not the usual Romanesque Chinese script.
Apparently it once had a sticker at the base of the rear head which read Made In Korea and was an oblong black and gold design.
The pickups are brass backed with RoHS stickers.
The wiring route from selector switch through pickup route to control cavity is diagonal.
Bridge is standard MIK B2 unit.
Please help me date or identify Country of origin.
Many thanks in anticipation.

Don't know if this will work but thanks for the advice.
I'm a pretty good guitar player but an appallingly bad trainee computer geek !
The guitar has now had it's original bridge and tailpiece swapped for Gotoh items in nickel and the Mk IV Pickups swapped for Irongear Rolling Mills (overwound bridge).
It now produces an excellent sound, sustains for ages and cost less than 200 including mods.
I prefer it to both my Gibson SG Standard and my Jackson Japan SL4 Soloist too believe it or not !
