I'm not that well educated on tokai guitar models, and I'm wondering if you guys can help me choose my next guitar.

I'm after a les paul. My main squeeze is a 1990 gibson les paul custom. I like its slim fast neck and aggressive sound.

I've owned 2 tokai guitars. An MIJ es135, which I thought was an amazing guitar.
I also had a modern love rock, it was an MIJ lp custom style one. I didnlt like this one so much. It was a great quality guitar, but I didn;t get on with the fatter style neck and the warmer, more polite PAF style humbuckers.

Do you guys have any recomendations for the types of love rock guitars I should be keeping my eye out for??


Cheers!!

Pickups can be changed easily enough but you're going to have a hard time if you didn't get on with the fat neck because as far as I'm aware *all* of the MIJ love rocks have always had a fat 50s style neck profile.

Ive been offered a few locally .

A 2001 wine red with flame top , dont know the model number , all original , no scratch plate . Open book headstock .no case.

A 2009 Ls135 in a sort of 58 style violin burst.its seen some action and someone has sanded the finish off the neck and rubbed out the love rock logo.with case . Seymour Duncan aph pickups .open book headstock .


A 2010 tobacco sunburst , possible ls85 or 95. Non open book headstock and has tuners replaced , not sympathetically! Bridge pickup ha sheen replaced, but Original is included in sale . With or without case.

A 2004 ls65 Cherry sunburst . Tuners replaced, pickups replaced with Duncan 59s. With a case . Open book headstock .

All of these guitars are available with an hours drive from home . But I could do with a few pointers about specs of models and your opinions on which of these youd recommend Id go for .
