2005 LC85 WR?

Post by henjiet » Thu Apr 08, 2021 7:26 pm

Good day!

I just bought a 2005 Tokai LC in Wine Red, serial no. 0510085. Looks like it has a one-piece top and a one-piece back. Rosewood fingerboard and Japanese pots. I'm assuming it's an LC85. Am I correct?

Built quality is superb, by the way. Thanks in advance! Cheers!

Thanks for the info! Much appreciated! :)

I was pleasantly surprised that mine has a Gotoh bridge and tailpiece. Not sure if it came like that from the factory or if the previous owner did the upgrades. I'm gonna do some more upgrades though. Just received a couple of Gotoh parts in the mail: bridge with titanium saddles and an aluminum tailpiece. :D
