"I have the LH-700 - no electronics. It's truly a beautiful guitar. That said, the workmanship details with The Loar are hit and miss. New, I had to replace the nut as the string slots were cut too deep, and the neck had excessive relief to…"

"I would recommend against using graphite. Graphite is an abrasive (don't take my word for it - google it). If you want a powdered lube, use molybdenum... (equally messy)."

Ralph W McMullin replied to Fern's discussion Question about vintage FG-160 in the group Small Body Guitars
"Tan labels are also referred to as "green labels," although they look tan. Yes, the model number would read FG-160-1. Some green's were made in Japan and others in Taiwan. "

Ralph W McMullin replied to Fern's discussion Question about vintage FG-160 in the group Small Body Guitars
"The "-1" models were the version "2's" which are not as popular but sound every bit as good. Your model would have a red or tan label and the "-1's" would have a black label."
