time you started counting the number of pieces that make up the mahogany back on that LS60 :-?

agreed on the LS120 - looks like an LS70F from 2001 to me ... odd

I would go for curved.

My LR has split the neck pickup ring in the centre because of stress caused by the ring not following the contour well enough.

flat will break after a time.

Yeah but I think we'd all agree that a '78 LS60 reborn is a very different beast to an 80's onward love rock LS60 which is what I was talking about. From somewhere in the eighties the LS60 was specced with 3 peice backs whereas the LS70's have two. Capacitors!!!!! don't even go there :evil: :wink: GB

Also worth pointing out that the LS60 (plain maple cap) guitars have 3 peice mahogany body whereas the LS70 (veneer types) have a two peice mahogany body. So does the extra glue in the mahogany back have as big an effect as the extra glue for the veneer ??? Given that the mahogany is the major contr...

To a point, but we are also entertainers who play music for people to enjoy. The people that come to gigs only know two names and they love to see a 'real' strat or LP reproducing the songs they love. I have both Tokai and Gibson - the Tokai is much sweeter and is used for everything but for the peo...

This is just the LR Relic done for the uk market - Ned has the details on the registry pages.

They cost about ?1000 brand new so you'd have to be a bit dull to buy at this price.

Hi Ned, Interesting then that the LR II is the same in the states - I was told by the UK distributor that they were specced by them for the Uk market. Maybe some porky pies on the part of the UK guys then? :-? Still I don't blame Tokai for shipping them world wide coz they are rather nice looking gu...

Not sure but I think we might have some crossed wires here. The Love Rock II uk version is a new guitar for 2004 and looks like this: http://www.tokai-guitars.co.uk as opposed to the US Love Rock II which is kinda Les paul-ish but with bits shaved off as it were. Which version did you get spaniard??...
