Hello fellow guitar enthusiasts! My name is Roy and I'm very excited because I just bought my very first Tokai and am eagerly awaiting it's delivery. Nothing special,but...
http://cgi.ebay.com/Vintage-MIJ-Tokai-Love-Rock-Goldtop_W0QQitemZ180316398231QQcmdZViewItemQQptZGuitar?hash=item180316398231&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=66%3A2%7C65%3A13%7C39%3A1%7C240%3A1318 ...the first thing I wanted when I decided to go the route of a non-Gibson Les Paul was a Tokai Gold Top

My interest in owning a Les Paul began not long ago,but I've fallen in love with the style and quickly deterred myself from overpriced,poorly made Gibsons in favor of a Burny Super Grade. I've had that guitar for 3 months now and it was one of the best things I've ever done for my rig. The thing that freaks me out is I think it's a Korean model,which makes me really excited to see how this Love Rock stands up to it.

I could go on for days about Tokais and Burnys,as I'm sure you all could. I just wanted to get a first post out there and introduce myself,sure I'll be chatting with you all soon!

Welcome on bored! You'll love the Tokai.

You did well to avoid buying one of the American "Fakes" with Gibson written on the headstock. Not in the same league as a genuine Love Rock.

Did I say "Bored"? I meant "Board" D'Oh!

That was comes of typing before you've had your morning coffee and cigarette, isn't it?

the location for the '84 LS-50 gold top is listed as Lino Lakes, MN; just a few mile north of me

tell the guy you really don't want it & I'll go & grab it

I do pretty much everything as a byproduct of boredom...
