Hi everyone,

Just registrered on this forum and hopefully within a week a proud owner of a Tokai LS122 Goldtop

I really wanted a Les Paul model and have always been a big fan of the Goldtop LP. A real Gibson is way to expensive for me and so I began my search for a quality Les Paul copy. First of all I discoverd the Vintage models, but the shape of the horn of the body is different. Vintage was of my list. Then Epiphone: not a fan of the headstock so Epiphone was also of my list. Then I discovered the Tokai models. A real authentic copy of the original Gibson. Even the headstock.

I first thought of buying a MIC Tokai but read a lot of good things about the MIJ Tokai. Some consider them even better then Gibson.

Read some negative stories about bad quality issues Tokai had a couple of years so I searched for more information about these Tokai MIJ LP models.

In my country there aren't many Tokai dealers and so I discovered one in Germany. Gottfried Schmid of Faber guitars. Ordered a Tokai MIJ LS122 GT this weekend with a nice Lifton case and hopefully I will receive my first Tokai next week!

A bit scary to order one without feeling, hearing and seeing one closeby but hopefully these Tokai MIJ LP are as good as they say. Gottfried send me some archive pictures of a LS122 and I must say, that guitar looks awesome!

When I receive the guitar I will post some pictures of my new guitar!

To be continued.......

Hi all,

My guitar is on it's way! I am really curious about my first Tokai guitar! I really do hope these Tokai guitars are as good as they say. I am a perfectionist and hope the finish of this guitar exceeds my expectations.

I will post some pictures of it when I have received the guitar.

I am very pleased with this guitar! Sounds great (even unplugged) and plays great!

On top of the headstock Tokai glued a thin layer of extra wood. With the cheaper Chinese guitars like for example Epiphone, the top of the headstock is made of one piece and painted black.

Also the nut is made of bone material.

Love the gold finish!!

I own a couple of electric guitars, but this one is now my absolute favorite!

Can't compare the finish with a Gibson (never owned one) but the finish must be on par with Gibson or maybe better?
