Older than Love Rock 0010853 it looks like, but by how much? :hmm: Is yours a Reborn Old?
Lifted from the Tokai facts thread:
"Les Paul Reborn" - 1978 - early 1980
"Reborn Old" - early 1980 - mid 1980
"Love Rock" - late 1980 to Date
This is most true thing I have found with my various Epi's over the past 8 years (lots new, lots used). The stock action at the nut is sky-high, and makes playing (and trying to learn) S0 much harder! This is one of those "if you don't know any better, you don't know any better" things. The...

The ones with the true Custom block inlays must be rare as "__ "(rhymes with Duck), as I have never seen one, only the regular Trap style. :hmm:
I'm with you on that too, as I've had a few also. My Tak Goldtop is flawless, and I got it for a good price, so no complaints! Except that it is...
