    Thanks. bluesriffdev for the info.

    That '81 LS100 looks like a nice piece of lumber.

    If it stays under 180,000 yen (which I doubt) I might stick in a sneaky bid, as I'll be able to afford the customs fees... just. It's why I'm reluctant to buy through a place like Rinkya, because along with the fees, they're not going to feel inclined to lie about the Customs value to get a sale like a small retailer would.

    Really? My last Rinkya purchase, just a few weeks ago, gave me the option of quoting my own chosen value for Customs purposes. (I didn't.)

    Not normally a fan of Orvilles or the early Epiphone Japans. They're great guitars, but not as good as what you can get elsewhere for the same price.

    This ones priced at what you'd pay for a beat up one, and look at how beautiful it is! Part of me wants to snatch it up and put some nitro over it: https://www.digimart.net/cat01/shop70/DS04397739/

    Like you say! Had several old Tokai LS, the best sounding and playing was an LS60- over an LS80 and LS120. The LS60 had a solid plain top with some nice slight flaming, the LS120 had a flamed veeneer top. An LS120 is 2-3 times more than an LS60.. Hard to judge for only status symbol reasons, feb and nitro finish.
    Someone please buy this https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/j467824847
    get it refinished maybe if you dont like the colour. It is a bargain these days. And I never saw a Tokai LS with a flamed neck!

    is it me or the flames of the neck stop before the end of the neck, like it would be a two piece neck ?

    The flames stop at the end towards the body- because it has a heel cap. I think it is an"inky serial number"

    I love the flamey neck, but correct me if I'm wrong: Aren't horizontally flamed necks prone to warping? I thought this was the reason nearly all necks are quartersawn, hence the straight, vertical grain.

    Not that cheap. Bought many EG 500s for around 30.000 yen.

    I would rate an early EG59-45 a bit higher than an EG500- every Mint Collection has a long tenon and nicer inlays
