Here we have the last word in early Tokai les paul replicas, a 1981 Tokai LS 200. This is the only one of these for sale in the world right now being one of the rarest Tokai guitars ever made. Back in 1981 these guitars were custom order only, featuring Tokai's 'cashew laquer' finish and hand picked timbers.

This particular example features a great flametop with a slight asymmetrical '59' profile to the neck. Lightweight at almost exactly 4kg. This guitar is all original except for the following:
- OX4 Medium wind aged double white PAFs
- TVT CTS pots with original 60s 'black beauty' caps
- A previous owner installed 2 mini switched between the tone controls which have been plugged with some brass studs (I have photos showing these studs being in the guitar since the early 90s).

Comes in the original Tokai case
Feel free to ask any questions.
Shipping at buyers expense.

SOLD

I believe that one was on villager's web site some time ago & you are correct, they don't show up often

what is the fingerboard material, regular rosewood, jacaranda, Braz?

$6250? yawsa

EDIT: I see that is Jacco's old 200 BS, I knew I had seen that somewhere around here before. Jacco's thread didn't mention fingerboard lumber type & neither did villager's 200 OS thread. villagers 200 OS fingerboard looks like regular rosewood in his photos.
