sweet. i got a lfw-1 myself, which is bought by my dad around like 20~ years ago, or even more. the thing is i could not search for any evidence or information of the production proof of this guitar. Its pretty cool now since i found this thread and found that quite few of us owns a Flambeau. I personally think its a very durable guitar, i meanafter so many years, nothing has happened to it. No changing of the setup or anything, totally sweet. Also the sound is awsome, although i think its quite hard for begginers to start of with. Its a relief to see that a few owns a flambeau. hoped that more and more would show up and tell us about this guitar.
