Tokai Les Paul Reborn 1978 LS50 - value/spec info?

Post by imalrightjackj » Thu Mar 11, 2021 12:07 pm

Hi all,

I've just picked up this and it plays very nicely - it's also very heavy! It had one owner from new until not too long ago, has its original case, although no longer has the circuit board nor original pickups (now has Bareknuckle Abraxas).

Can anybody help with spec? I know little about it and there appears to be a lot of conflicting info online.

I’m also not sure on value. I’m in England, if that helps.

Thanks!

Nice!
3 piece top and back and 14 degree headstock angle but who cares. A real solid wood player that has all you ever need in a classic LP.
Way good enough to gig with but not so nice that you're reluctant to take it out of the house or even the case to play it or bounce it on the stage a few times at full volume.
Coolness factor off the chart too.
Enjoy!
value=priceless! :D
I heard they threatened Tokai with a lawsuit, but they never got to Cort?

That is just lovely. If you're really bothered about value, check reverb sold listings.
