On the subject of tuners, you could buy another set of Gotohs - they make many different types, they are relatively inexpensive and are superb quality. If you have a bit more cash, you could get a set of Grovers - as used on Gibsons, and many would say they are the best. But Gotoh are a better value...

Yes, guitar shop universe - got a reply from a very helpful chap named Yoshi who said the shipping would be ?115 or ?219 depending on which service was used (EMS or UPS).

Darn, I had my heart set on a flametop... now I'll have to go and try out a 65!

Cheers.

LS series

Hi I've been considering buying a Tokai Love Rock recently, and I've narrowed it down to the LS65 or the LS70. There are 3 things I'd like to clear up though: 1. My local guitar shop say that the 2 are almost identical, but the LS70 is better put together (is this true???) and has a flame top - are ...
