 Just made a deal for my Buddies 1984,Lancaster; White,Hardtail,original single coil now sporting a Humbucker in the bridge. Steal of a price...insufferably pleased with myself!! Lol.
 So, who can educate me on these guitars??
Thanks.

Well I can add a little:  I would suggest the best value in the Vintage Guitar market today, playability is superb along with the Craftmanship we expect from Larrivee and the Hardware is topshelf. It doesn't have Gibson or Made in USA Fender on the headstock soooo they are a steal for anyone who wants a suberbly kickass electric guitar.

As for the guitar I assume its a bolt on neck thus would have been marketed as an LS-1 following the nomenclature:

Neck Configuration:   R = Neck thru and L = Bolt on
Body Style:  S = Strat and T = Tele
Pickup Configuration:  A number was used such as 1, 2, 3, or 4 depending on the PUP set up

Single humbucker in bridge position
All bolt-on necks were made of a single piece of eastern maple
All fingerboards were ebony
Bodies for bolt-on necks were alder

And here's mine  whistling
