Yeah, there's a few at the moment - one of the lemon drop ones looks in really nice condition, and only 40k. A good deal I think, sadly I'd have to sell something to buy another guitar at the moment, and I don't want to sell any of my current guitars. :)
Where? I did a search and only got back MIV

One of the BLS-95 lemon drops is back (although I don't consider it to be lemon drop), nice deal at 38k:

Doesn't it say the frets are slightly worn but no problem to play in the listing?

From the picture the frets have a small amount of wear (easily levelled as there's plenty of fret left) and only on the G and B strings mainly. I think it's in good condition for the age and price of it.

Come on man, the purchase price is only AUD $500! Compare that to what Koiz or someone in Europe asks for these guitars.

Besides it only needs a fret dress or level not a fret job (or as Mike would say "a light stone"). That isn't expensive, maybe about $75 rather than the $400 for a whole fret job.

Yes, like any older used guitar would need a fret job! :lol:
Honestly though, I think there's plenty of playing left in that one.

I have a lemon drop BLS-95 and i bought it early last year for US $295 with a hard case..... :P It is a beautiful, well made guitar and an absolute bargain, the only things i don,t like and will change are the bridge and the pickups.

Well that's what I did in the end... #101289 to be precise. :lol:

All original (except for the knobs) and in great condition too. I just closed the deal last night and it'll be about a week before she gets here so don't have better pics yet...

Very nice Hansi. I have a BLS-95S that I bought from Rich (MIJvintage) and love it.
