Area for Tokai's older than 1985
Always a pleasure to read your posts ! Your knowledge about those guitars is awesome Peter !Peter Mac wrote:Hi Ron,
This is indeed an LS-70-GT from very late 1981. The Model Year 1982 began production usually around October 1981. The serial number is from very late 1981 ( 1014000) as they finished around 1016000.
This was the only LS model to have an 18deg headstock pitch but poly lacquer instead of N/C. Interestingly this model was sold with a OHSC as part of it's retail price 84,000yen, the same as LS-80 and above Models. LS-60 and LS-50 were not.
