The name 'rosewood' was coined in reference to Brazilian rosewood, because of the rose smell. True rosewoods are not in the rose family. EIR smells like cow manure to me. The pores...

Dowel tenon on 1980-81 Tokai LS50 & 60?!

Hi, I'm new here. Has anyone noticed that the LS50 & 60 from 1980-81 with ink stamped serial numbers all have dowel tenons? At least all 5 I have seen so far. It's a shame I don't have pics of all of them but one is on Ebay right now: http://imageevent.com/chingo123/february2010/tokailoverocksbls604...
