saw the thread this morning, didn't want to be the first one to bare the bad news but there are plenty of shady sellers out there; best to search out the reputable ones before buying, good luck hearing from Joe, don't hold your breath

Re: NEW Tokai model - LS150F-CL (Classic)

Tokai have just introduced a new model, the LS150F-CL....CL stands for "Classic" because the Maple flame used looks like the flame used in 'Vintage' LPs. Premium Series specs, Solid Maple Flametop, One piece body, etc. Colours negotiable... Honeyburst (HB) http://i1240.photobucket.com/albums/gg494/...
