Re: Love Rock 2 - Controls / Coil Splitting Function?

Well if it's any help to anybody - I ran the diagnostic checks as described in the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zZzBPxKpvq0 and can confirm for the two sets of Tokai humbucker I have (one pair off a c. 2004 Love Rock 2 and another pair of uncertain provenance but believed to be off a ...

Re: Shiiping guitar from Australia to USA

Can you still ship guitars into the USA easily enough from overseas - or do those CITES restrictions come into play for individuals as well as companies ?

Re: can you experts tell me if this is a Tokia ??

I don't know if it helps - but there's a wiki page which certainly confirms a manufacturing link up between Tokai and Fender.. " Tokai and Dyna Gakki produced the Fender Japan solid-body models from 1997 until the end of the Fender Japan joint-venture in 2015. " https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tōkai_G...

Re: Love Rock 2 - Controls / Coil Splitting Function?

Ah - it's coming back to me now, that's actually the original specification: volume splits the neck, and the tone splits the bridge :) What added to my confusion is the the other LoveRock2 I have was retrofitted with Irongear humbucker sized p90s by the previous owner. With no coils to split, he had...

I own two of these guitars, so should know the answer.. :oops: The Love Rock 2 has two humbuckers, one master volume control and one master tone control. Each of these is a push-pull type.

Re: Wine Red / 'Merlot' Love Rocks ?

I actually did that before posting - I'm getting Korean manufactured ones and 'LC' numbered ones - custom ones I think.

I was wondering if there were regular production ones that came out of the Japanese plants ?

Wine Red / 'Merlot' Love Rocks ?

I'm wondering if Tokai Japan ever produce any dark red/ burgundy coloured (or quilted maple patterned) LoveRocks ?

If so, can anybody steer me towards some pics ?

Thanks,
Alan
