I just bought a used Tokai LP, and am not sure how I can tell which model it is.

It is made in Japan in 2000, based on the serial no. 0004144.

It has a flame top, that may be sycamore but looks like maple to me, as the cap visable under the binding in the cutaway seems to match. Is the model number stamped somewhere?

p.s. A real LP truss cover fits, if you heat it just a minute under a hair dryer. Completes the look too.

I can email photo, if that helps.

Based on the picture I just added to the Registry I would say is a LS70F in violin finish. Sycamore flamed maple top.

If you bought it in Canada it's most likely the LS70 (you can also tell by the price), but I don't thing many LS200's were imported into Canada. If you paid about $800 Canadian then its probably a LS70.

Thanks for the feedback Ned. Actually, I passed on the ones for about $800.00 and went for the better sounding playing one for $1100. Better detail on the fit and finish.

Oh well, I may have overpaid, but I like it.

Thats all that matters.

A LS200 would have been around $2400 Canadian.
