I have my Black - Antique White Love Rock for sale... Serial # 5033760... In reviewing the data on the registry web site, I believe it to be an LS 80 model... I can send pictures as needed...

Probably not an LS-80. None listed in color black in 1985 catalogue. More likely an LS-50.

Some comments...

1. This guitar was purchased about 9 years ago from a seller in Japan and then shipped to Canada.
2. It was shipped minus a case and thus a hard shell, Les Paul generic case was procured....
3. No changes to the guitar on my end from when I purchased it....
4. The guitar has some wear on the back and some dents that are hard to see with this camera... more details shots with my better camera would be required...
5. Serial number is as noted... and "stamped" into back of headstock...

6. Model... I agree there is some discrepancy in this as the 1985 catalog does indicate colour for the LS-50 BUT the other data on the site indicates that LS-50 had a 14deg headstock... in measuring this guitar the headstock is 18 degrees....

7. No additional stamps for LS-50 or LS-80 can be found....

Maybe I'm not reading it correctly, but the 1985 catalogue indicates that the LS-80 (at that point, different from previous years) also had a 14 degree headstock angle.

1985 is an odd year for Tokai as discussed here recently

Mine is a 1985 LS50, 18 degree headstock, one piece back, two piece maple plain top. Bell TRC and "open book" non export headstock.

It seems that it is the Nitro finish only that would determine it as an 80. Mine is definitely poly, albeit very thin on the maple.

Of course the Phantom will strike especially since he found a marvellous flame maple under black laquer
