    Very nice looking ladies, and the electronics look neat and tidy as well.

    YES ... and most of them are MIK or MIC models - called ALS xx ...

    ... and have that ridiculous dimple in the middle of the moustache to differ from the big G ...

    If you want a high grade MIJ model which is close to the original you'll have to do a research on ebay worldwide ... or import from Japan directly - new or used - but I warn you ... they are pricey in the meantime ...
    ... or ... ask somebody who can tell you a reliable seller ... :naughty:

    Hi

    Even I am perplexed and want to take your advice,
    I'm completely floored with the plaintops but looks is secondary criterion.


    - I have to make a choice between Tokai LS 120 or 150 and Navigator from the same period of 79-82, which one should I go for considering I want a warm & nice tone, playability wise not the looks or collectivity's wise ?
    - How would be the new Tokai LS -150 model in comparison to 80's Navigator 250 model with a Laminated Top?

    Please suggest.

    This is my somewhat battered but still beautiful 135Q from 2003, one piece back. I heard they did a small run of 135 in quilt. The guys at Tokai Register it could have been a special limited edition. Bought in London about 3 years ago for £530 including a quality hard case. Original owner wore it out real good so has lots of scratches and nicks, and a couple of big dings in the back. The plus side is that it's comfortable as an old slipper.
