Hi,

I've been at togps' home today and had to take this beautiful lady with me:











All I can say: Gottfried, you're the man!!!

This guitar sounds and plays just as sweet as she looks

Andi

Wow!
I guess togps did it again! That is a stunner!
When will you fit in the H?ussels?

Please keep us advised of the changes in tone after you did that...

PS: Nice playing and tone on your sound files too!!

Hi Kappie,

I just finished installing the H?ussels, I also did the 50s wiring mod,
since I have that combination of H?ussel pickups (VinA2 neck, Angus
for bridge) on all my Les Pauls, the sound is/was no big surprise

Gottfried told me the spec list for the LS 150 says "vintage MK I" pickups,
I dont't know if these pickups are really MK I, they are unnamed like the MK II,
or if they are the same (MKII) as they came on my LS85F, they sounded
really good, but the H?ussels deliver more definition on the lower strings
and also a bit more dynamic range than the stock pickups.

Andi

Thanks Andi,

Maybe I?ll consider a couple of H?ussels too in future for my LS85Q or SG75. For now I am quite happy with the standard PU?s. Especially the neck pickup on the LS85Q sounds very open, warm and woody with good definition, but I am sure that this is also due to the quality of build of the guitar itself.
Guess things can always be improved, even my playing...

Herbert

Wow

Another stunner. Gottfried, I'm glad you live no where near me because I'd come home with a new girlfriend every week.

Enjoy, Andi.....

I've just had another look at the pictures and in case I didn't make myself clear with my first comment - Gimme, gimme, gimme.

What a beauty, congratulation

Nice picture as well, is it the 50?s wiring on the picture ? What do you call that finish ?

Enjoy,

Hi,

it is violin finish, but it looks almost
as a lemon drop (the photos are a little bit too dark)

If I compare it to my VF LS85, the colour of the
LS 150 at the outer part of the burst is brighter, not
so much orange or brown in it.

What Tokai calls lemon drop today is - to me - what
i.e. Gibson calls "Amber" - it is way too much orange
or brown in that colour as in a real a lemon drop should be!

The picture still shows the original wiring (for the 50s mod I just
soldered the caps to the middle connection of the vol. pots)

Andi

Can't see any holes in the pics.

150s have no factory instaled pickguard,so no holes at all.I feel with a pickguard better, so I installed one too, it?s more elegant. Yours is more falmed than mine,but mine is older
