Awesome pics Felipe!

Now you've got to show us that flamed mahogany body you were talking about.

And if possible, some soundclips? :)

Re: 70s LP Reborns and recent Love Rocks

In that collections thread, seems a number of you guys have (or had) 70s LPRs and 90s/recent LRs. As soon as I sell a couple of other guitars, I'll be buying one or other Standard 'burst replica. Question is, do I import a new LS-65 (still Japanese made as far as I can tell, but the one with a plai...

Damn you're one lucky guy. Can you post any soundclips of your new guitar?

I see you got it from Guitar Shop universe like I did. How was the condition of the guitar? Did it have store wear like mine did :cry:

Wow, still haven't found your ideal tone yet? At least your having fun tweaking it, if it were me, I'd just give up and put up with whatever I had in there. Maybe it's not your pickups/guitar that needs tweaking..have you tried fiddling around with your amp's settings? The amp is where you get most ...

Why does my Love Rock have a flatter belly than a Gibson?

I thought that Tokai was obsessed with copying the Gibson's body shape to the point of taking them apart to make sure they were accurate. So why is it that my LS65's carved top not as prominently curved as a Gibson? I was told that 70's Gibson LP's had a flat belly like the Tokai is that true? Does ...

Anyway i have no idea why in response to your last sentence. You could always import one from Japan? or have a browse on Ebay where they usually have some. Wow, I never knew Slash was raised in England. I just thought he was born there and moved to the U.S. while he was still an infant. Well, he do...

My guess is the LS-75Q. Look at bluesman's thread, and compare his pics to your guitar. Hope that helps! :D

stokeboy where do you live? Your statement about your guitar shop getting a few LS 65 soon is like a dagger in my heart. You mean you don't have to resort to practically smuggling the Tokais into your country like us Americans? :wink: It angers me that Tokai is one of the few companies to make a tru...

John, actually I've got a Japanese Love Rock, but I'm assuming my guitar would see the same improvements that your's has. But I was told that the electronics in modern day Love Rocks are light years ahead of the ones from 20 years ago... You know what, the bridge HB on my axe is a little bright, it'...

Got any MP3's you can post of your new guitar? I want to compare your guitar to mine and see if it is worthwhile for me to make some of the improvements you made!

Hey there, Well, I have an LS-65 in a Violin Burst finish (looks like a mellowed-out cherry sunburst), and yes it is a 2 piece plaintop. The higher numbered models come with a 2 piece back. The LS-65 is a 3 piece back. Neck profile and hardware are identical. But from what I've heard from other peop...
