Don't really know actually. 30K does seem like a decent price though.
thank u for the answer.
Still thinking and choosig, either 30k for the Grandy or 36k for the ELK made in 1971. I am not a collectioner, just looking for the good deal and a good guitar to play.
If someone can give and advise, I would be very apreciated.
and here is Grandy (tokai) for 30k comparison.
Grandy, or wait for a Greco/Burny custom to pop up in this price range! That ELK has unusual neck angle or the top is too shallow? Looks weird to me!
In fact, you can find a good Greco or Burny for lower than 30k if you are patient!
Thnx. Quality of grandy can be evaluated by the fret binding. Seller says there is fret binding, and tokai was making binding from model 80 and higher. So should be descent.
That Elk is probably more of a conversation piece than a good playing guitar. Too early.
your post is 666!!!!!!
to compare to Grandy. Can't find any video of grandy les paul.
but ELK video exists.
A video without distortion would be better. I'd take o0mobius0o' advice.
get the Grandy..
Thanks everyone, I will go for Grandy then. will share when I get it.
Grandy for sure.
Elk amps however, are killer!
Sheet ya they are!
J-Dizzle, thanks for your reply, i don't believe i was told the correct year but from their info the year of production is between 2011-2013.
Pardon the delay for my reply, i was checking the forum for the next couple of days after my post but then i stopped, thinking i will not receive a feedback in time and having in mind the fact that i returned the guitar back (also i never got an email alert about your reply). Since i reached to the Tokai factory i might as well share their feedback which is leading to not 100% certain of the made.
I thought this was interesting. Check out these two listings...
As far as I can tell it's the same guitar except it looks like the original parts went back on, but notice anything odd with the serial numbers?
Also interesting is that the first one listed and sold in Winnepeg, Canada last May. The second one is currently listed for sale in Gifu, Japan. Can't be too many guitars that end up back in Japan.
Any ideas what might be going on here?
Just my humble opinion... it looks like the guy on reverb photoshopped off the last number, maybe to avoid showing the whole serial number? Anyway, just my 2¢.
Ah, yes. They are typically seven digits. Interestingly a '79 LS100 I have and a '79 LS50 I had previously also have very feint last digits as this one does.
Hi I posted this as a new post and was advised by elephantrider
to try here.
Could someone confirm that this is a Tokai LS100Q, it was made in 2004, the pickups are unmarked with silver backs and braided leads. From the pickup cavity it looks like a sold "maple" light wood coloured top and the back is two pieces of Mahogany with a center seam.
The control cavity have made in Japan pots.
I believe the colour is "Red Wine" although I have tried to find other images of this colour with no success, it must be a rare colour, I cannot find from any of the catalogues that they made this colour in 2004.
I have attached some images of this guitar, it is absolutely stunning in real life and a dream to play with the traditional wide neck.
back in my hands !
Dam#, that's good looking!
i know ! hahahaha. forgot how heavy it was, to be honest.
it feels a good 2lbs heavier than any of my other lp's, with
exception of the antique black back i have.
it just screams out of a tube amp.
