Re: Information on Lero Guitars
: Can you send me a photo of it? I used to have on, would like to see if it's the same model.
: : i have a lero guitar that my uncle gave me. he bought it in the 70's. I have no idea who it's made by. it and electric solid body and it just won't stay in tune.
I have a tele copy made by LÃ©ro (yes - with an accent over the e). My brother got it used in Nova Scotia in the 1970s, so it must be at least 30 years old. That makes two posters with a LÃ©ro connected to NS. Hmmm. Maybe they were made in Halifax or elsewhere in the Maritimes? I have used it for 20 years.
The action is great but it too won't stay in tune very well. I had to replace one of the 2 pickups years ago. It sounds decent - warm. Very solidly made and heavy. Never seen or heard of any others until today on this site! Looks like rosewood fretboard - not laquered.
