Thanks fuzz...turns out I purchased a brand spanking new MIJ LS150 instead - what a beauty! Congrats, that's a fantastic looking Love Rock. Is the neck size similar to the specs I posted? Seems Tokai keeps the neck size closer to real vintage burst specs rather than the oversized (i.e. .920 and up)...

I just recently bought a new Love Rock in a quilt top, I'll post picture when it arrives. Like you pimphat, I also paid about the same amount of money. Don't think it is an unreasonable amount when the hit rate on scoring a good <$1K Gibson brand new is not a favorable bet. TBD how the Tokai purchas...
