Better than good chance that the first Tokai LS150/200 Flametops made will remain in Japan as collectors items-

That's almost for sure, because there weren't that many of them, I guess.

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?

150,000 Yen... There was a new one recently sold by a german ebay dealer for EUR 1,125.00 incl. vintage case which was a very good price. Ishibashi has a new LS120F for 96,000 Yen incl. case plus shipping which is also a very good price in my opinion. That model has the most important features for "Historic nerds", i.e. long neck tenon (not the usual medium sized tenon on almost all other Love Rocks), nitro finish, lightweight tailpiece. So I guess a new LS150 has them, too. I'm not sure about the flamed top being solid or a veneer, because the 2003-2004 catalog uses the term "flamed maple + maple top" for the LS120F which is also used for the lower models. So it might be a veneer, and it's also not sure how many parts the mahogany body has.
