Do you see any seems in the back? Here is a seem below. You need to look on the top and bottom of the guitar to see a seem. Looking at the back is hard sometimes. They do a very good job of blending the seem sometimes.

Picture of the back is tiny. If you look at the butt end strap peg you should be able to see a join line, if there is one at all. One piece body =higher model. Control cavity pics ??

You really need to look at the top of bottom of the guitar to see if there are any seems. That is where you would easily see them. What about the knobs cavity? What does it look like in there? Does it has orange drop caps?

Can you see if the 3 way switch says switchcraft? It is really hard to see. No orange drop caps.


2007-2009 Catalog Volume 23. (I think this is 2007-2009 that is what the internet says)
http://s183.photobucket.com/user/stratman323/library/Tokai%20catalogue%20Vol%2023?sort=3&page=1

Checkout LS135 I would say it is this one but no orange drop caps. Could be ls92 but since that one does not say one piece back. It is probably multi piece.

Some of the pages on v23 are not opening so I cannot view them all. Page 8 (second row all the way to the right) has a GT but that one is not opening for me.

If anyone has a fully working v23 post a link to it here.

No CTS pots or switch craft switch either. I don't think it can be a 135, the electronics are standard for a vintage series, not premium.

The UK model specs don't always follow the non export ones but Paladin2019 would know the best, I'm guessing its just a well joined back. Looks like there's some Bareknuckle pups modded into her.

Have had a good look a the base again and the grain is continuous all the way round with no joints and yes it has bare knuckle pickups.

I'm not so sure about that.
