    All in well-used but good condition. $450 +Shipping each, OBO


    Indonesian L-2000:
    L2000Indo. L2000IndoSerial.
    Some belt-buckle scuffing on the back. Great condition otherwise. Beautiful grain.


    Korean L-2000:
    L2000Kor. L2000KorSerial.
    Light swirling all over, only visible up close, and I was unable to photograph it. Looks like the previous owner tried to clean it with something coarser than they should have. The pots are a little scratchy too. Sounds great nonetheless, and has a shallower neck than the others, and therefore plays the best out of all of them, for me at least.


    Indonesian L-2500:
    L2500. L2500Serial.
    Rust on top pickup screws, and a bit on the toggle rings. The white residue in the crevices is just carnuba wax I haven't removed yet from being recently polished. Scuffed on the side of the headstock, from where the previous owner had it on an unpadded hanger. No other issues. Plays like a dream.
    L2500Pickups. L2500Toggles. L2500Nick.

    What is the difference between Korean and Indonesian?

    Any trades considered?

    Different neck profile is the only difference I've noticed, other than the word 'Tribute' stamped on the bridge and headstock. Many claim that quality control was better overall on Korean models.

    Items in my GAS List are the only things I'd be looking for in trade.

    How is this neck profile different?

    The radius and width at the nut are the same, but the Korean is not as deep; less distance between the back of the neck to the fretboard.

    It's hard for me to get an accurate reading with the scales I have, but near as I can tell, they're both just under nine pounds. Judging by feel only, it seem the blonde is just a tad lighter.

    I didn't include shipping in any of the prices, so I'd be asking the same for pick-up.

    Any intrest in swapping for an LTD B206SM? Ding in the headstock but otherwise in pristine shape.

    My first choice would be the 2500, but I also do like the Honey colored 2000.

    Sorry, not really looking for much in the way of trade right now. Things are a bit tight at the moment. I could be swayed by items in my G.A.S. list, but that's about it.

    Price drop to $450 shipped! The Korean is sold. Does anyone know why I can no longer edit the OP to reflect this?

    When I do my best to weigh it on a bathroom scale, it comes to around just under 12 lbs. but official specifications put it at 10 lbs. It feels closer to 10.

    Thanks for the assist Coronado!
