Re: NGD... my first Tokai. Did I do alright?

Mmmmm spectactularly well, enjoy. Thanks! Very nice.... I'm a sucker for a plaintop. Is it a satin / matte finish? I like that! That is why I was drawn to it. So many shiny flametops out there that it took a plaintop to really grab my attention. It has just a couple of little subtle hints of flame ...

NGD... my first Tokai. Did I do alright?

FedEx just dropped this gal off on my front porch. My first Tokai. I've been looking for one for quite some time and never found the right one at the right price. Found this LS196 EF-VF up for auction. Even though it was listed as new I figured it was (and expected it to be) used since it wasn't com...

Ha. Thanks for the link. =)

I wouldn't have been getting that one since it is quite a bit out of my range anyways. But good to know the back-story on it.

where are you located and 2 grand in what currency? Sorry... I didn't take into account the international audience. =) 2-grand USD (United States Dollar). I'm in the US. I know I would have a bigger pool to fish in should I expand my search internationally, but would prefer to deal locally (contine...

What is the best bang for the buck near my budget?

Been looking for my first Tokai. Stumbled upon a few here and there that have caught my eye... like this (advertised as) '02 LS-200. I won't be getting this one... bit out of my price range and the guy won't budge on price (might be why it has been listed for over a year). LINK I know worth/value is...

I appreciate all of the responses and help.

I AM looking for a Tokai. But since I'm a Tokai n00b I'll definitely be running any potential purchase through you guys here first.

Thanks again.

The search continues. =)

A little more info:
Then you are probably correct. That’s good information. It definitely does have a 2 piece back. It is finished in nitrocellulose without a doubt.
Thanks,
Based on that info... pretty sure it is a LS70F?

A little more info from the guy: It has the number 8 written in the bridge cavity and I think L1 or something like that in bridge. I bought it from a guy in the Netherlands who sold it as an LS150. Honestly, I really don’t know what denotes it as a LS150 other than I’ve heard they are finished in ni...

Are they usually labeled somewhere (control cavity... one of the pickup cavities) to make it easier to identify?

Nah... if that is the case then I DEFINITELY want to hear it because that does make a difference. =)

Any way to verify this is indeed a LS150 from '02?

Looking at a Tokai advertised as a LS-150 from 02. Since to my knowledge Tokai doesn't put model identifiers on their guitars... is there any way to verify this is indeed a LS-150 from 02? For those of you more in tune with Tokais... what would you be looking for to validate the authenticity of that...

Help identifying model and value?

Greetings. I'm new to Tokai's so I'm not really sure what I'm looking at here. Local listing. Guy says he thinks it is an LS60 or 65. Listing says: Beautiful lemon drop ala Gary Moore flametop Les Paul standard. 60’s profile neck, rosewood board, w/Seymour Duncan 59 neck and TB-16 59 hybrid open coi...
