But, Deadstring, this thread started out regarding the LPS-QM, which is solid top. No question that there are LPS-Q with veneer tops.

I have no idea whether LPS-QM RI's exist or not. It would be great if they did. However, for now, I'll defer to Villager. If someone can provide pics and references to one, I would be quite glad to see it.

Sure I agree, never seen a solid top quilt "reissue" with fret binding etc..
