Hi everyone,
my name is Matthieu, I'm new on this forum I'm 21, I study Industrial Engeneering in Brussels, and the rest of the time I live in Luxembourg at my parents' place. Sorry for my english, it's not perfect but i'm sure that I'll increase my level here
Now, let me introduce my new baby : a Tokai LS-120 from january 82, all original, awesome sound!

here's a sample I did with my Fender Blues Junior tweed amp, recorded with a crappy PC-mic :

let's the pics do the talking...

















see you

Hello, Matthieu. Lovely graining and finish on that LS-120.

And, your English is fine. Welcome to the forum.

Hi Marcus and Mick
thanks for your kind remarks

by the way, I would like to try the Peter Green mod on the neck pickup. But I'm afraid of 2 things :
*break something
*the guitar would become "not 100% original"

What do you think about it?

thanks

Hey wmatthieu, welcome to the forum. Nice to see, my ex lady is obviously in good hands again.

Mind your baby and enjoy...

My name is not Justus - my name is Gottfried. I was the pre-pre owner of that beauty.
I sold the guitar once to Justus..

BTW, may I ask to post your pix a bit smaller (max. 100kb)
Thanks

The pics are about 150Kb, is it to heavy to download or to large for the screen?
I won't change theses pics (it took me a "long" time to upload them and I'm too lazy too do it again), but no problem for next time

Looking at that LP, I feel like selling my Gibson R8 and getting one of those! Tokai even managed to do some nice white tuner buttons on it, instead of snot green!

Really nice mate
