    Thanks, Wally.

    The colors on mine didn't come out quite right. If only I was a better photographer... :(

    Wow, that's rather stunning! I just love plaintops, especially in that burst.

    How does it play? I'm considering getting a Tokai aswell. I'm not sure if Im gonna
    buy myself a LS80 with plaintop and that violin finish, or pay the extra and get a LS-135.

    Looking for a new Les Paul as I just sold my Gibson Standard. You'd recommend one of these?

    Sorry for the VERY late response. I got it new from Ishibashi in Japan (in 2005?). It's a large music store. But I'm not sure they even sell Tokai anymore.
