Hi Pals, long time Tokai Loverock fan, first time poster...

I`ve got a couple of pics (non-digital, obviously) of me playing my first Tokai LP.

From peering at the photo`s, I believe the LP in question has two screws on the truss rod cover, cream coloured open coil pickups (not Zebra) and was bought for ?96.00 in 1986 in Glasgow`s Sound Control store at its original site in the Saltmarket area. I eventually sold it for a profit of ?14.00 three years later.

Can anyone tell me if I owned a Jap Tokai, going by the above details?
I know I`m torturing myself but I do need to be put out of my misery so let me down gently.....

TA!

P.S., I`ll do my best to scan the photo`s in asap...

Anything from 1986 will have been Japanese, the open coil cream pickups suggest it was quite likely a LS50, so not particuarly valuable. Probaly worth around ?400 today, but in real money that's only about the ?110 you got for it in 1989 so don't lose too much sleep

Love to see the pic, hope you're sporting a proper '80's hair-do
