Guys, I'm trying to date my Emmons Legrande D-10 SKH

The SN# is 521L

Anyone know the year on this baby?

I'll be putting her up for sale soon and I'd like to be able to list the year.

Thanks
John

My eyes aren't what they used to be. Looks like a Lashley Legrande to me. Can't see the changer well enough to make the call. Assuming it is a Lashley. It was built or finished after the Lashley Legrandes were already being offered. Which was summer of 1986. The vast majority of the 1st edition Legrande's have a serial # lower than 400. Guitars with less popular colors often set on shelf for years after the mica was applied. Then when they got a call for that color. The guitar was completed. Hope this makes sense.

Thanks Bobby. Yeah, I guess I should have posted the FRONT of the guitar LOL. She's a Lashley LeGrande. Here's the front.

Can't see the changer very well. And it may just be my poor eyesight. But from the last picture it appears to be a short keyed Lashley Legrande, (long body of course) with a Legrande(short body) style changer. These were rare custom orders. But not unheard of. I've seen several LII's with a short head stock and heard of a couple of LIII's with the short head stock. The short keyed LII's I've seen all have the late type changer.
