Does this seem real or fake?

Post by timbo475 » Sun Jul 22, 2018 1:41 am

Hi,

I'm looking for LP-type guitar and I've been researching Love Rocks a bit I found one that seems good but I'm not really sure if it's real or not. Everything looks OK from pics but the TRC is bell-shaped (whereas most info I've found suggests it should be arch-shaped).

This is a LS 125 (Vintage Style)

It's probably difficult to tell unless you see it in person but does everything seem to be right in the pics?

Cheers,

Timbo

No worries, very legit!
Dimensions of the holes of the TRC are the same as Gibson and some people prefer the bell shaped one. (As did I )

Agreed, I've got a Gibson Historic style bell on mine.

Thanks guys.

It came with the original arch/bullet shaped TRC so that certainly put my mind at ease well. I pulled the trigger on that baby - seems to be a really well-made guitar.

Going to take a bit of adjustment from my G&L Legacy but I'm willing to give it a shot :D
