Very nice photography. Just lovely to look at. Does it come with pickguard and case? It looks a bit like one Villager had at one point.

Hello,

Yes it comes with the original pickguard. No original hard case.

I'm sorry I do not know who is Villager.

Thank you.

Sorry mate but that is no long tenon. That is only a route, the tenon stops at the start of the pickup cavity. This is a long tenon, same cavity but the neck fills it up.

I didn't take off all the glue and varnish, it is quiet a bit thick... But it's larger...

Looks about the same as the Goldtop. But I wouldn't call either a long tenon. This is my idea of what a long one is:

woah, interesting stuff..!

it'd be nice to see the neck/body seam inside the cavity on flares gtr, that's where it's easier to tell if it's a route or if the neck extends in?


what were the other 2 gtrs you guys posted pics of?


cheers

Medium or long , the point was that the LS 120 does not have a long tenon. Actually the "120" has what i would describe as a "medium" tenon because if you look at the gibson standards, their tenon doesn't even reach the pickup cavity and has a little piece of wood in front ofit so you can't see how poorly done it is. As far as i'm concerned if the tenon protudes into the pickup cavity then it is a long tenon and that is how these guitars are sold. And Flare, it is common knowledge these earlier Tokai's had the "medium" tenon.

Hi Marcus, just love those "Edwards" tenons....they are very well done.

here's a detail shot of a 1981 LS-120 Love Rock tenon.
Notice the glue residue at the base of the tenon, which indicates that the tenon is only slightly longer than the fingerboard.
In other words, the tenon goes no further than the neck side of the pickup route.
The very bottom surface of the tenon route in the body, is below the pickup route surface, with no tenon material filling this void whatsoever.
It is as if Tokai made this huge route for basically nothing, which is pretty much the case.
The neck tenon extends no more than 1/8 inch past the neck binding.
I would call this a 'neck length tenon', the same as on all of my Burny RLGs.


Glue bubbles/residue at the base of the tenon; tenon ends right there
