A while ago I posted some pictures of my LS-200 and was asked to post a few more taken in better light/daylight. So here they are, I haven?t taken pics of the cavities yet but will open it up once I have the time to let my guitarhealer do a setup, but I have no rush ..she plays just beautiful as she is.

These pre -83 LS-200 guitars seem to be rare as a hens tooth, so if there are any other LS-200?s out there I would appreciate pictures of them, that is i?m aware of Marks -79, Gottfrieds -81, and I recall having seen a quilted one here on the forum as well? And there is this guy in Japan in the LS-200 link on Classifieds that has one or two...wonder how many there are out there?

Best Regards

Thank you for all the nice comments!
Maybe It?s time for the Tokais to get their own burst names...since Gibson have the Brock-Da Pra Burst and others ...So with Marks permission(hope it?s OK Mark?) I therefore name it the Fletcher-Karlsson Burst

Hello Volker!

I actually opened up the front cavity a few minutes ago and the pickups are Dimarzios
"Dimarzio pickups MADE IN USA" on the back and they seem to have the original soldering...also Mark once sold it to me as 100% original so I
haven?t even checked until just now when my curiosity took over

Best Regards
Mikael

PS I could also see that tenon is the "short version" just as expected DS

Hello togps!

Hope i?m replying to the right thing now, so that your question was not for how Volker came to that term regarding the pickups?

If you wear referring to the short tenon....then I obviously could see, when opening it up, that it was like every other pre -82 Tokai LS I have seen, in other words short tenon

Best Regards
Mikael

Spot on Mark, the short tenon belongs to the Gibson standards and they hide it with a piece of wood.....

OK, thanks for the explanation

It?s good to use the same terms so there is no confusion....As for Gibbies I had only heard the vocabulary long and short....you live you learn
