Beautiful - please could you PM me specs and prices?

I bought a white LC off you early 2015, which I'm very happy with and it was a great transaction/service!

That's how it is with the ES range....all my Love Rocks have the serial number on the back of the headstock but with my ES130 (2007) the serial number is on the label inside the guitar but nothing on the headstock...

I have both a premium LC in black and a vintage series LC in white. Both are fantastic guitars and both get used equally in rehearsals and live as I rotate my guitars with a new set of strings for each gig. Marcus has already given you the specs so I won't go into that. If you want a solid and relia...

Just to let you know, I recently bought a brand new LC107s with replica Lifton Case from Tokai Germany. Thanks to the favourable Sterling:Euro exchange rate I got it shipped for ?780 or there abouts...

It doesn't appear to have a serial number so I would guess it's 90s rather than 80s. It was early 90s, I believe, when Tokai stopped putting serial numbers on their F-style guitars.

Yes, I agree It is MIJ but probably built sometime from early 90s through to 2004. If I remember correctly, I thing Tokai stopped putting s/ns on their F-style guitars in the 90s and this continued through to 2004/5 when they stopped making F-style guitars for a few years due to manufacturing for F ...

My view is that it is currently very hard to find any MIJ LP under ?500 in the current market - so ?450 including the case looks a very good buy. Secondly I have 2 premium Tokais plus my LS75Q...I'm a gigging guitarist and the LS75Q is my main gigging guitar because it just feels so right in my hand...

I agree that country of manufacture shouldn't count against a guitar but if you ask people to identify a model, then the first thing to establish is whether MIJ, MIK or MIC...or Fake... As your model has an 08 serial I would say that it is MIC - production of the standard series moved from Korea to ...

I do read German and I think this guy is being straight - at least in the fact he states it is of Chinese origin but 1 of 2 made to order for a German shop with matt black and vintage style adornments...

he's not trying to pass this of as anything other than an MIC guitar...

When you buy from inside the EU there are no importation charges but if you bring goods into the EU then you have to pay import tax. In the UK, you have to pay tax on BOTH the cost of the guitar and the courier charges at 17% roughly So if you are looking to buy from Japan then add roughly 20% to th...

Marco - this was for a second hand model, high end, in reasonable but used condition. I'm sorry but I think Mark's prices are fair and reflect the current market - look at prices from Japan then add courier and import charges (circa 20% in the UK) and then you'll realise that... Mark - thanks, I'll ...

If I might chip in here.... I bought a 2006 LC195s Black Beauty 3 and a half years ago and cost to me was ?900 including taxes and importation from Japan... Given that in the last 3 years prices have gone up and the exchange rate with the Yen and USD have gone down I would expect to have to pay 25-3...
