Apart from some minor price increases,
there were no significant changes to the lineup for 1985 - except one: the
Kahler bass tremolo. More on that below.
for pricing, the base LB50 with an ebony fretboard was $439, and $419 for
the LB50CM (maple neck/gloss finish). There was a $20 upcharge for
red or white. The LB50K was $489. The LB40 base price was
$389, in black, white, red, or clear gloss finish. The Koa model was
$439. The photos in the catalog were the same as the '84 catalog.
DN640 remained the same price as '84, and the same photo as had been used
in previous years was used in the catalog.
