I'd like to encounter one of these LS320's and the like. I'm sure they are amazing. It would take a lot to seperate me from my '79 LS80 though - she has plenty flame too if that rings your bell. That one looks v. tasty Och baby - I do like the feel and vibe of old guitars I guess - broken in well. New guitars just feel too 'new' to me.
For Gods sake Storm - where is this wretched thing. You must be tearing your hair out by now! I am. See - thats me now thanks to you. I bet you've got it really and cant put it down long enough to post. Get a grip. Whats the first riff youre gonna play on it?Mine has the white type switch tip also by the way.
Hey - I'm a guitar God now! Better practice more from now on.

I know i know. I cut my holidays short and came home friday morning at the crack of dawn in case it arrived. No sign. No weekend deliveries. Set my alarm for 8am this morning. Waited, waited, waited.... etc. Gonna have another early night and see what happens tomorrow. I was too afraid to even go to the shops to get bread an milk in case it arrived so I was really hungry all day too. lol. Its horrible waiting

First riff. Havent thought about it but maybe some Thin Lizzy. Possibly Emerald (love the solos in it) then jailbreak, dont believe a word, waiting for an alibi and the classic whisky in the jar.

Then maybe some Queen. Then onto the usual ac/dc, led. Wanna try out van halens Aint talkin bout love ooh and deffinitely The Trooper by Iron Maiden. Awww look what you did now. I want it even more now thinking how much better these are all gonna sound on my LS80 through my Peavey Classic 50 compared to my old Ibanez sa160 through a crappy fender frontman 25r. Let the good times roll

Hans , I have never seen over a LS100 from 1979-that would be a RARE bird!!!

They exist, look into the 1979 catalog - but wear cheap sunglasses... In 1978 the highest listed model was a LS100 though, but I've seen a LS200 Reborn from 1979 sold by a Japanese dealer recently (wasn't Ishibashi), so I thought you bought it...

Looks like I'm getting old, it was a 1980 Love Rock LS200V sold by Guitar Shop Universe, but it looks very similar to the picture of that LS200 Reborn in the 1979 catalog, that's why I probably mixed it up:

http://www.cyborg.ne.jp/~universe/used0101/80tls200.html

And I think it wasn't an auction, but rather a direct online selling.

Thanks. I used to like the flame finish but since I saw the finish on the LS80 reborn I'm getting I think I prefer the plain finish. Especially in a darker colour. Gonna have a look through that 79 catalog now

I'm interested if we can take that explanation for granted that the serial number 9000107 reveals this would be No. 107 of all Reborns built in 1979. Do you have that information directly from Tokai, togps? And is this true for all Love Rocks throughout the years, too? That would be very interesting and should be added to the main site if it isn't yet.


I've to correct it. Tokai do not start with "0". So I am not sure it is No. 107 in 1979 at that time. But maybe No. 107, 57 or 7, I think.
It is not recorded by Tokai.

Stormcrow you gotta eat man - you must keep your strength up! This is turning into a ..... well something. Holiday axed, starvation, early nights... Jesus Christ! I bet youre not sleeping anyhow - youre gonna remember this for years to come. Still - its gonna be worth it! Can we organize a food parcel drop for you or something?
First riff should be The Rocker 'cause.... this is getting silly now.Just get the guitar. Anyhow look - youre a guitar God too now.

That LS200 looks amazing - were they custom order?

Togps - the Chiswick Alps are in Chiswick in London. Near the flyover

I'm not sure, but somehow all Tokai top models seem to be custom order, because there is always the notion of being able to choose the pickups or finish and having to wait at least for three months in the catalogs or dealer web sites.

@togps: Thanks for looking up that serial number issue!

Hans ,
I have a Jap friend who told me the Tokai LS120's are a legend in Japan, Better than good chance that the early eighties Tokai LS150/200 Flametops made will remain in Japan as collectors items-

I'd love to snag a early eighties LS150/200

The only 80's LS150/200's I have seen were there in Europe-never made it here to the USA-

Most of the LS120's I have bought were from Japan (8 of them) the other 5 LS120's I purchased from Europe.

Hi you guy's.
Sorry to hear it's still not arrived Stormcrow - just be patient I guess. Bloody Postal 'service'
Thanks for the info Hans- J. What are the new LS150's like? Someone I know has one just over from Japan - a sunburst flametop - and may be prepared to trade it for a painting he likes ( I,m a painter ). How much is a Loverock 150 worth?
Cheers,
Mike.
