    How to tell the difference?

    Hi There, So how does one tell the difference between the "Premium LS256" and "Vintage LS136" that are current models. I am looking at a Vintage LS230 (which I assume is the very same as the 256 but 2020 model) to buy and don't want to be caught unaware! Asking for a friend! TY!!

    Not much love for Talbo?

    Well, it's easier to imitate and very hard to innovate. Tokai builds great guitars, but perhaps their strong suit is in copies. I personally do not see anything wrong with that. They would have to make a great guitar that resonated with the public, but most of the public does not get to see...

    CBS has not owned fender in a long time FMIC tried going public in 2012, couldnt. The difference is in quarterly reports, public companies need to publish not so private ones

    Neck profile on Les Paul Special type guitars

    Chuck, I am on the look out as well and there is one sorta local to me. If the neck is skinny, I'll let ya know. I won't play it in that case but my pal will and he will give an honest review to me. Hope you find one!

    Anyone played aN LSS230 special

    What I am really hoping for is that it works in a way I am used to with a special. Essentially this will replace my Hamer P90 Artist, which has a great build and a beautiful fretboard. Hamer was over the top on construction but the guitar rarely gets played. Maybe not enough personality? I...

    Anyone played aN LSS230 special

    I like hefty necks, my dc Jr Shishkov is 59 big neck, my semi hollow is even bigger but is symmetrical. Just don't wanna have a Freddie Blasey Pencil Neck Geek one hour away
