Sell me something cool... LS-80 LS-100 LS-120 LS-150 LS-200

Looking for a nice old Tokai LP. 1978 - 81. Prefer the more faded burst look but some of the cherrybursts are ok. What do you have?

It's just a bit of solder.

I don't like this mod because the tonal changes when you lower the guitar volume knob can be very useful, especially when recording. That is part of what makes a Les Paul so versatile.

Looks like a legit 1980 TE-50 to me. Two piece body & burst finish. One of the lower end models but still nice. 7 digit serial, neck screws look correct. Would be nice to have interior photos.

$50.00 extra for Natural?? Humm ... Figured the burst Color would be more. Gibson always charged more for natural finish - it required higher grade woods free from flaws. Sunburst was standard to hide imperfections. Look at the model numbers... J-45 (sunburst) J-50 (natural, higher price) LG-2 (sun...

Ibanez Rocket Roll Flying V vs Tokai Flying V

Happened to see this Ibanez Rocket Roll on ebay now up to about $1800 http://www.ebay.com/itm/Nice-76-Ibanez-2387-Flying-V-Korina-Finish-Lawsuit-Fantastic-Condition-1976-MINT-/330849224425 I've played a few of them and also a few equivalent Tokai Flying V models, the TFV70.

I think that was a great buy, the case alone is worth a good few hundred. Plus you get an ST100 with it! It looks like a two piece body, which I would expect. I think the figure in the wood is a little more subtle than I would expect, and I'm surprised to see those knots or mineral streaks on the si...

There are some of both in 1978. First the narrow neck plate, then the standard full size after that.

The longer name plaque looks like a newer reissue case.

So they went back to the bell shape in the mid 80's? That's what I get for ignoring Tokais made after 1983 :)

Sorry, hope no harm was done to the sale... carry on!

I have an original Tokai truss rod cover if you want to put it back to stock.

That's a real nice & rare guitar, like an ES-295 meets a Les Paul.

$850 is a collector price. I think it's high for the changed parts and later logo. Let's look at some facts: -TE50 is the lowest grade Tele -mid-80's production less desirable than early 80's for TE -later logo, less desirable than Fender style spaghetti logo -replaced pickups -brass nut, who wants ...

I wont do this myself, but a pro tech will do all of this. This is no guarantee of quality work. Make sure to ask how the job will be done before leaving the guitar. Do you really need Grovers? If your Kluson style tuners have too much lash find another set that will fit without changes. There are ...
