Very clean and nice LS-100

How do you know it is Brazilian? I have never heard of an LS-100 with a Brazilian board.

Fella's first and foremost the Phantom thanks you for your patience.
Cliff my tech Ive had for over 30 years has worked with Brazilian for that long. He get's an allergic reaction to it. Said he did a test and was sneezing all over the place. Also said it had that sweet smell after sanding a small section. I'll take his word for it. Either way its a great guitar, you can make your own assumptions. I've never ever read anything that specified that any Tokai's had Brazilian so I'm not sure. Its not like a Greco EGF 1200 and 1800 where we know for sure. Cliff if there's something you know about Tokai's having Brazilian, would love to hear about it. broken Toes the Phantom is ecstatic to say the least!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok Jacco
1981
8 Lbs 10 oz or 3.856 kg.
The pickups that came with it are Dimarzio's with covers. Let me know if these are original or not. I've attached some pics of the pickups Jacco.

Also did a quick one take file...............hence the overload sound, went into the red cause I was having too much funs sorry. the soundfile has the LS100 with Skatterbrane Earthbrane pups I quickly installed. So that what your hearing

Great soundfile! Would have loved to hear you demo it the DiMarzios for comparison. i love those DiMarzio PAFs.
Those DiMarzios are stock, the covers are not.
