Hello Everyone,

    I have a L-6S that was passed down to me from my grandfather. After several years of playing it I would like to restore and replace some of the parts. Mostly replace the pickups, pots, and wiring. Everything on this is still the original equipment and other than what I just mentioned all is in great shape. I'm wanting more specifics on this brand if possible. I'm unsure of the exact year but I have the serial number. Also, one if the pickups has November 197X on it. So I'm almost there! Any suggestions on replacement parts would also help me out. I've attached some pictures as well, however having to resize them didn't improve the clarity. Thank you all.1874949624_20191217_1950304.thumb.jpg.b1aab462d583b1f6ce968a113151342c.jpg

It’s your guitar and you can do what you want, but I try to keep guitars as original as possible. 
 

Yours was made in Nashville and was serialized (early in the build process) on February 15, 1980.

Wow talk about quickness. Thank you for that info. The pickups were shorting out. I'm guessing it was soldering issue. The volume and tone pots were becoming scratchy. Any suggestions on what to do or where to find the original parts? The searches I've done have yielded little results.
