I have been able to find very little information about my 12 string guitar.
It is made in Canada. The name of the guitar is Lys built 1980 model # L20-12 serial # 1098. I can find no other marking on the guitar. Did however find the info below.
If you have any information on this guitar please e mail. I am excited to know.
thanks melinda

Lys
Manufactured by Unisonic (operated by Claude Boucher and Robert Godin) in the 1980's. There's not too many of these guitars out there that I've seen. From what I understand, the Lys line was replaced by Seagull guitars. So the name may have died off, but the guitars live on. Unisonic also made Kamouraska guitars.

LYS guitar 1980 (12 string) model L12 ser: 1087

The pull on the 12 string was such that the delicate handmade construction on mine , couldn't take it, which lead to neck separation from body. I had it repaired professionally and months later, it started to separate again.
I simply turned it into a six string, lowered the bridge and no more problems since then. Lovely sound and resonance.
I'm holding onto mine.

I have a 6-string acoustic classical guitar made by Lys in Canada. It also has Kamarouska on a label. I bought this guitar in the early 1980s. I would like a value on it. I know I paid close to $600 for it. It is in excellent condition.

Ive once owned an lys 12 string. dont remember the serial number. I paid 20 bucks for it because some one didnt know what they had. the neck was sepperating from the body and the repair cost was more than i could afford ($1500) i gave it to a friend tovfix as long as i could see him play it.

Re: Lys 12 string acoustic guitar

I have a Lys L-10 12 string that I bought over 20 yrs ago. Excellent guitars and quite rare these days. Godin made them and the company died after the factory burned down sometime in the early 80's. They re-established in La Patrie Quebec where they make the Seagull, Art and Lutherie, Simon and Patrick and Godin electric guitars.

The Lys guitars were solid wood, finely handcrafted guitars that are (in my humble opinion) at least as good as the Martins. Hang on to yours... its a classic.
