Re: 1985 Tokai TLC 65

On a second note - I have a set of Norlin era mini humbuckers laying around - I'd love to transform whatever I buy into a Les Paul Deluxe. Is that possible with a Japanese copy? Great Idea, I've always got along well with the deluxe minis. The mounting is a little different with a bar screwed in at...

Re: 84 Ibanez RS1300

That's a beauty!
I have a 1984 RS135 and it's one of the most comfortable playing guitars I own.
I think the neck fretboard has a 12" radius?

I know the 80's Fender Contemporary Strats have the 12" radius. Love it! I could do without the System 1 trem, wish it had a standard trem. Stays in tune with dive bombs but doesn't work for subtle vibrato like a standard. https://66.media.tumblr.com/80b5499258d6401fd55df79b3715d44e/tumblr_pkrl4rwy7...

I think this is the same guitar. Somebody bought it and knew what is was and is reselling. Or this one and the first ad are some B.S. ad posted to collect whatever. Maybe I should have checked it out when I saw it listed for $600! :o https://66.media.tumblr.com/3a0deacea25be7a30b7f23731c093ace/tumbl...

2009? LS160??

For sale in my town, I know nothing about it or the seller. buyer beware. When first listed this morning at $200 less I thought about going and taking a look, but something didn't seem quite right about it. https://portland.craigslist.org/clk/msg/d/woodland-tokai-love-rock-ls160-japanese/6960506811....

I like how Cliff's site has a quantity order button so you could put 5 or 6 LS200 in your cart.
What, no price break if I buy 6? :D

minihumbuckers would fit, wouldn't they?
I got some off ebay a while back. Alnico 5, chrome covers, 4 wire but not metal braided and like $50 for the pair shipped.

I put them in a 1985 Ibanez RS135 and was very surprised how good they sounded.

I'm sure one could spend way more on a set.

Here's me playing my brothers ZZB Deluxe bass with maple board way back in the day.
Pretty decent bass as I recall. He used to get his Entwistle on with it but he really wanted an Alembic!

I've thought about going and taking a look at it several times, but you know how that is. Suddenly I'd have another Strat!

I've had 2, a matching set of strat and P-Bass. E serials, maple necks with skunk stripe. Good ones. I sold the P-bass because the neck was too big for my little chimp hands. Kept the contemporary strat with the system 1 trem. I have better pics of them somewhere. https://66.media.tumblr.com/80b5499...
