Ha, good question!! Bruno.
Actually I had a 2006 LS85S GT and a 2006 LS145S GT with me.
I said nothing about the difference in features to the visitors.

But compared even unplugged, everybody prefered the one piece body mahogany LS145S against the multiple mahogany body of LS85S.

Ha, Bruno, no surprice for you, right? - even you own already the Gold Top pearl of Tokai ??!!
Enjoy it Bruno!!

Gottfried

Which model LSS's are the cherry red LP Specials on the top shelf ?

You must have had lots of admirers and interest at your stall, that's
one hell of a line up of quality intruments

Cheers

Chris

A LSS175 then ?

How does that compare to the LSS100 SEB version tone and sustain wise ?

Just interested as I'm loving the LSS100 SEB I have now it has a lightweight intonable aluminium bridge

Thanks

Hey Chrissy, the SEB LSS is a great guitar.
I sold mine one, so I'm not able to compare it A and B.

But this Honduras Mahogany LSS is so lightweighted, so resonant and so loud even unplugged. Incredible!!

A guitar with this features is not available by Gibby.

Anyhow, both guitars are fantastic players.

One tip more. Install an ALU STP.
On guitars with no bridge, the sound difference is huge.
Much more improved as on guitars equipped with ABR's

Enjoy your lady, Chris!

Where on earth did you find that beauty ?

Is the bridge solid brass ?

I'd already taken you advice on lightweight aluminium stop tailpieces Gottfried

I got this from www.Pigtailmusic.com



I got the idea after I saw the photo's you posted of the Jeff Beck Style Love Rock that you had specially made - Another stunning guitar.

This guy is so good, he makes stuff for NASA !!!
