Hi togps

I have the same model mine is 84 too not in as good condition as yours but still very good considering it's age. Did they only make them in 84 and do you know how many were made?

Mine is much lighter than most LPs it feels half the weight of my Orville Sykes. Very resonant and the Tokai 57 pickups are awesome too no way I would change them as I usually do!

As another poster pointed out John Sykes has had a signature model made by all the manufacturers inc Gibson and it seems some are still available new so he must still be popular.

Regards

Simon
