For Sale 2005 Tokai LS-150

Post by buckwild » Sat Jan 05, 2013 10:42 am

PM me for details. $2300 shipped.

This is a LS-150 from 2005 Made in Japan. Nitro top refin done by Ian Anderson..this really looks like an old lemonburst. Ian nailed the color. Better than any I've seen from Gibson actually and I've owned a few lemonbursts. It has a solid maple top, not a veneer. No weight relief holes whatsoever. It has a tundratone wiring harness installed along with a tundratone 3 way toggle(switchcraft). Also, has Slash Seymour Duncan pickups. Kluson tuners, Historic truss cover, Steel ABR posts that go 1.25 inches in to the body. This guitar rings like a bell. Lightweight Aluminum tailpiece. It also comes in the cool Lifton style Tokai case with pink lining.

Wow, very nice. I have never seen a Japanese-market solid flametop LS-150 from 2005 like that. Usually the top of the line models don't even have tops like that.
Was it a special order or a regular LS-150?

I'm not really sure. From what I was told it was just a LS-150. However, I agree, the flame is nuttoville!!!

I did a search and found the answer here: http://www.tokaiforum.com/viewtopic.php?t=4434

It seems they just had some great wood at the time.
