Followed folks' suggestions. Thank you.
I realised after posting.
I'm a dunce.
Not worth it to me, but each to their own.
That's almost the price of a new Gibby Std though.
For that, I wouldn't be looking at a Tokai.
I just googled "Used TOKAI LS-75 HDC MIJ Les Paul Standard" and found others, for less (varying reasons).
Have to ask why you'd opt for a Tokai, rather than an Epi', or even a Gibby?
Oh! Hello! Sorry I'm late! Yeah, agree with all the aboves, be a veneer. Wouldn't bring anything your Grec ain't gotSome Tokais are very high end! And despite having the best specs out there are still significantly less money than a comparable Gibson. And the QC tends to be quite a bit better as well.
As for this particular model and your being in Australia I really can't advise you regarding the price though. Maybe @jimmyjames can?
2k is def too much. Thats 1978 ls100 territory.
I was at a local (small) music shop the other day and I saw 3 brand new Tokai Love Rocks in different color finishes - I am not sure of the modal but they were each 96,000 yen (so a lower tier I am sure). But that is the current price for a new Tokai in Japan.
