Hi Ron,

This is indeed an LS-70-GT from very late 1981. The Model Year 1982 began production usually around October 1981. The serial number is from very late 1981 ( 1014000) as they finished around 1016000.
This was the only LS model to have an 18deg headstock pitch but poly lacquer instead of N/C. Interestingly this model was sold with a OHSC as part of it's retail price 84,000yen, the same as LS-80 and above Models. LS-60 and LS-50 were not.

Congrats

Peter


Always a pleasure to read your posts ! Your knowledge about those guitars is awesome Peter !

Thanks for that info Peter Mac

Appreciate the knowledge!

I'm really enjoying the guitar, I changed out the Gibson pups that someone had replaced and put in some Bare Knuckles. Sounds better than any Gibson I've played!
