Hello all, glad to be here. Here’s the story: A friend found a L59, Korean era (1990-94), in perfect cosmetic condition, but with electronics corroded past hope, bought it and gave it to me. (Yup, that’s a friend.) Gorgeous piece, great neck, and it’s been fixed up with new HBs and sounds like a fine LP should. (Yes, I’ve owned a couple big G’s too. I’ll keep this one, thanks.)
What I need to know is the specs, and not all of them, just the body, neck and fretboard materials. I can tell it’s got a gorgeous flamed maple cap, a deep burgundy color with tiger striping. But what’s underneath the cap? A Reverb seller said the body is solid maple (!) with rosewood fretboard on a mahogany neck. I’ve never seen that combination of materials. Is it correct? Anyone know the factory in Korea? Thanks in advance for any help.
