    hey fellas, my buddy Austin just busted out this guitar that we haven't used in the better part of 2 years, and we were wondering if anyone had any info on it. we've looked up the serial number on it and not found any trace of it existing besides 1 picture of the rear on google images. the model is I believe a Samick LS-25 DOS/TB, it's a nice looking and playing guitar, upgraded the pickups a few years back. not really looking for it to be worth anything, just found it to be odd that there's no info on it online whatsoever.
    here are some photos. any info would be appreciated!!

    I had an HSS one kind of like that, sadly I couldn't find any info on mine either.

    Does that guitar weigh a lot? Mine weighed a shit ton.

    hmmm yeah that seems right, odd that they didn't mention it in green though. seems fairly light actually, I was actually wondering if it was chambered but now I doubt that.

    I'm guessing TB stands for Trans Blue ( ? ), but it looks green on my monitor.

    Some guitars are like that, my Ibanez RG3120TW ( twilight blue) actually looks green in normal lighting but blue in bright light.

    Yellow and Blue make green...think ziplock...lol. The clear coat has probably yellowed with age, uv exposure, etc and turned the guitar from blue to green.
