This has recently come into my small collection and despite all the great information held here ,I still fail to know what era this is from '70'80'90's .best i can tell is a 58 standard replica of a ls 100 or ls 50?????After some more research the approx purchase year was 1979 from Japan. It plays like a dream and i know that i have been very fortunate to come across such a guitar which has come to me from the musical side of the family -I don't think i got the Gene but i still try!!-. [b]I do NOT want to sell it unless i knew that it was going to a home worthy of its sound.
As the sound it sings is out of this world compared to the guitars i have and play. I would really love to know and if anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated. Cheers

I'm sure this will be good food for thought for you all

I have learnt allot from this site and to you all that have donated there knowledge here,
Many thanks and kind regards to you all. Frank Bates[/img][img][/img][img][/img][img][/img][img][/img]

I think not, sadly. Does your family have connections with Canada?

More like China... it's a sad world indeed that would permit a product like that to be built.

If it's a decent guitar that seems a terrible waste.

If everyone had that attitude, there wouldn't be any 'real' Tokais either As mike says, if it's a good guitar, just enjoy it!

Use it as a beater or modifications/DIY guinea pig?
It 'aint your fault - no harm in getting some use out it. Put a sticker over the logo if it bothers you, and hammer that shite!
