FOR SALE: 1980 LS-200 LOVE ROCK

Post by kerosene_strat » Sun Jul 31, 2011 4:25 pm

Would rather not sell but needs must. Guitar is 100% original and the only damage is shown in the pictures. The frets are not even very worn, no buzzing.

Any questions please email guyboughton@yahoo.co.uk.

Make me an offer.

If only there was an English Tokai player/collector who would want such an outrageously flamed guitar...

Thanks for the compliments.

I doubt if I wanted to replace it one day if I could ever find one to match it for colour, tone, figuring, balance, electronics.

I've played a real burst but I've not had the chance to play one of the very best historics. Can't imagine any R9 could be better though.

:D

Yep, bloody marvellous! :o

I think I've only seen a couple on here, none in the flesh.
Yes it would be extremely difficult to replace, if not impossible as they hardly ever seem to come up for sale.

Still, for all intents and purposes you could possibly get the same playability and tone from a cheaper LS. :)
Totally biased towards Japanese made guitars.

Ey! A LoveRock with double ring tuners? :D
Absolutely stunning, looks like the one Svedje sold early last year & one of Marks former LPs?

Would this be a cashew finish? The Tokai logo looks very golden.

I know this question would be met with laughter and derision on a couple of other forums but how do you feel It compares lwith an original Burst in sound etc.?

Fantastic guitar - a real stunner!!

Well i love vintage TOKAIS,I am looking for a higher ls model REBORN,REBORN OLD ,LOVE ROCK!

I have only ever seen two ls-200 for sale on yahoo.japan in the last 3 years ,That ls-200 is my dream guitar ,my holy grail of MIJ les pauls ,I want it badly ,,it is everything i want ,i love in a vintage tokai ...really !

It is so freaking rare and stunning i am getting all kinds of stupid thoughts as to how i could afford it :x :D
I do not have an extra ?3k-?4K in pocket money laying around, I would jump on it other wise.
( I believe the asking price for it was ? 4 k last year!)

Jacco ! I realised it was the same the guitar as well ?


Good luck with the sale !
