Hi all - hoping someone can help me identify what model my Tokai Love Rock is. The serial number is 0819*** so does this mean it was manufactured in 2008. It also has made in Japan stamped on the headstock.

Here is a link to some pics:

Thank you.

Hard to tell with those pictures bud. 2008 for sure. Here's some ways to tell though, look under the pickups, sometimes the model number is stamped inside the cavity. Usually a one piece back denotes a higher model number than a 2 or 3 piece back etc.

2008 Vintage Series LS85 Cherryburst.

Or it could be a Premium Series LS135.
Check if it has Sprague Orange Drop caps.
Is the toggle a switchcraft.
Is the tailpiece aluminum or saddles brass.
