I'd put money on this being a solid top

I think it is one of the ELP-90FT models with a veneer top, but I'm not putting any money on it.

It's definitely not a pancake body.

Explain the pickup routing? I see maple, mahogany, mahogany. Maybe I'm missing something.


Edit, I think I see where is messing me up in the pics. It's the route for the legs that is making it seem weird to me.

Those are lines from the router and the color difference is bare mahogany vs mahogany that has some poly finish on top.

Yeah, that was a surprise. Mine aren't stickered though so I probably can't prove they are Drys.

Tokai don't do factory aging, do they?
They don't do it very well if it's true!

I've never seen a factory aged tokai. This... is not a good example of artifical aging at all.

"This is Tokai's best Les Paul standard model that has been aged in our workshop in Tokyo."

Tokai Japan is not in Tokyo.

Hard no on the relic.

I have a factory aged Tokai. 59 replica from about 2002 i think. Limited run of 12 pcs or so. Great guitar!
