Catalog has the L-15A as a two piece back.
Did that change as well?
The L15 stayed 3 piece. The L15A had a 2 piece back. So it's not a change in 1980 to the L15.

In a way the L15A shows the most similarities with the L10 from after 1980.

Nowadays a L10 would cost you twice the money a L15A would cost. Ans as sid before: the quality of the L15A is fantastic. I never played a L10 but I think much of that difference has to do with the MIJ and MIT thing. I can't believe the L10 is so much better.

Well I found an L20A,which after looking at the prices for the Japanese made versions seemed an outright bargain. I have many electric guitars, but will be my first acoustic in over thirty years so very much looking forward to it.

I've been curious about these models for some time, thank you for sharing all the info.

Cool, let us know what's she's like :)

BTW: as we said, the L15A seems the Taiwan sister of the L10, but the L20A looks very much like L15's sister. I took a look at recent L10 and L15 prices....... some are ridiculous :?

Will do.

Prices in Japan seemed to be about 2.5X the price of this L20A for an L15.
