Newby question out of curiosity,

is the older model numbering different from current?

For example, is LS80, similar to what goes for LS80 nowadays?

Beautiful top, love it

hiya

not too sure about new tokai model denomination

LS80 in 1979 was approaching the higher end of the spectrum with vintage-correct headstock angle and laquer (not poly) finish, 1pc mahogany back and usually plain 2pc maple top but a few had flame and figure in the top

hope that goes some way to answering your question
i have a feeling that this would be equivalent to LS-150 or thereabouts in todays production as the number usually indicates price in yen and inflation etc etc

waver away my good man - where are you in the UK? try before you buy might sway you
this is a seriously sweet Les Paul that needs a good home as it isn't getting played much around these parts!

It's a killer guitar - I used to own it. At gigs I was always turning down offers for this guitar - sometimes for more than the asking price here.
