    This is my new Custom Shop Tokai Love Rock.
    This guitar have the specs of LS173/186 BUT with Honduran Mahogany body and neck that Tokai use only for top notch guitars like LS320 or LS540 and it was made for a shop from I got it.
    Plain top (that I like a lot) with some nice wood figure. Neck shape is a work of art: it is a quite chunky but very confortable.
    I have had some Japanese clone like Tokai LS85, Tokai LS150AAA, Bacchus Gold top, Bacchus Special P90 (it is here with me), Edwards Special but in my opinion this is the best japanese guitar that I have had in my life.

    Looks amazing. Is that a nitro or poly finish?

    Congrats on the guitar Marco, it seems a good one. The finish is a bit different than in 320s/HLS420s but really nice! If Tokai says Premium you can bet it is....
    I am seeing new handwritten COAs signed bt Adachi-san himself, keet it as it is very special!

    Yes, I think that finish is poly + nitro on top, while for the 420 probably is only nitro without poly. Yes, COA is signed by Adachi-San! :)
