  1. Yes, I agree. But its good to have this info come from an "unbiased" source rather than me. My freind will see all these other LG's on ebay and think his guitar is worth thousands of $'s not understanding what the condition does to the value. So all this input is very helpful and I've already copied it and forwarded it to him; including the offer for $100 so that he could see what the real value is. Best regards, Tom
  2. Yes it is. I didn't notice it until I took the photos. I'll have to ask my friend Mike if it it means any thing to him; but I do like the Johnny Cash idea !! Regards, Tom
  3. That one picture showing the action is not a proper angle/view as the action isn't that bad on this guitar. That being said, I think most of the rest of your assessmnts are pretty dead on. I think the duct tape , bondo and other mis-treatments have made this guitar sound small and dull in my opinion; not like other LG-1s that I've now heard recordings of on youTube . Thank you to every one who helped me identify this guitar; it would have taken me considerable time and effort. Regards, Tom
  4. +1 Ouch. Those are some really rough repairs. An LG-1 would have ladder bracing (if you looked into the sound hole on the underside of the top and the braces go horizontally across) but an LG-2 would have x bracing (looking on the inside of the top the braces would be in an x pattern). The LG-2 is more valuable but in that condition, I don't know. Using a dentist's type mirror it doesn't have any cross bracing/only straight so I'm guessing it must be an LG-1 then ? As far as sound goes; its OK but it doesn't really compare well to any of my acoustics.

  5. My friend has had this guitar since he was a teenager(now in his 50s). He has abused it in many ways. There are non-original tuners and hole in the back of the head stock where the originals were. There are numerous small cracks in the body and yes, that is duct tape holding a large crack together on the back. There is another large crack in the back of the guitar. There is a hole in the side of the guitar where the neck joins the body. There is some kind of bondo material on the bottom of the guitar that was used to patch some cracks I'm assuming. The finish is checked all over the body I can't find a model number or a serial number anywhere on the guitar. My friend thinks this guitar is worth a lot of money. I told him that even if this is a model and year that has some value , that in this condition it probably isn't worth much. So can you help me ID and put even a ballpark value on it? Thank you. Regards, Tom
  6. Thank you to every one for the tips on locating the Dusk Tigers. Regards, Tom
  7. I don't see any dealers that have them. Thanks . Tom

  9. I agree on the "One sick pup " comment ! My only defense is that I my equip my entire band. We practice at my house and no one has to bring anything to practice. So I also have keyboards, 3 drum kits, PA , etc, etc. We only play out about 5-10/yr Primarily benefits, private parties,banquets. I haven't tried the Moolon or Z.Vex pedals but as you can see, I'm always willing !! Regards, Tom
  10. There is no doubt that the Dove is very special; it's quest is what brought me to this site! I must say you folks did not steer me wrong, I am absolutely loving it! Regards, Tom
  11. retrosurfer1959, Well the only reason I did it with the pictures of the acoustics is because I don't think the rest of the stuff will fit on the deck !!
