Where did that come from ? That seems to be pure speculation at the moment based on the OP comment that he thought it MIGHT be.
That is my only issue with saying the guitar is part of the "Premium Series" and that I can not understand how Tokai can make a solid flame top LS premium series guitar for 150k Yen when the first level of the premium series is a plain top at a higher price than that. Well, unless they are making savings elsewhere such as a two piece back.
The question, should a premium series LS have a two piece back? That's all. I just want to know.
I think there is a maybe point of confusion here.
This guitar headstock has the dimple so it is a ULS model
Tokai themselves confirmed it is a Tokai ULS150
The ULS150 is a premium series made for sale in the UK and it is definitely a solid flame maple top one piece back just check a UK dealer spec
ULS150 is actually priced 266k yen
Regarding the back I'm not saying you are wrong but it is speculation
I don't think the pics prove anything one way or the other with regards to establishing if it's one piece or two piece back as the pic is so poor.
What the pics do prove however is that it is definitely a solid flametop not a veneer and I don't see Tokai currently making any solid flame top with a two piece back.. So a solid flame top would be a ULS150
But hey who knows they could of maybe it's a model not listed in their current catalogue. I've not seen another one though.
I think the clear evidence of a solid flame top should at least suggest just based on common sense and their current catalogue specs that it would be a ULS150 a one piece back...
Plus the guitar pictured in this thread perfectly matches the current spec offered by Tokai and I have the same guitar at home a ULS150 same spec ,solid flame top ,one piece back, no fret edge binding.
