Aloha Cliff, How are things in surfer's paradise ?Aloha John,
Sounds like one of the relic LS guitars, done by the UK importer using (IIRC) Japanese-made LS-75F models. I had one and it wasn't a bad guitar (although given its origins, it had a veneer top, so the relic wear couldn't be too hard). I'll have a photo somewhere around here...Heres a question for all you Tokai experts out there...
Around june-August 2001, I went to The Guitar Show in Birmingham UK, where I purchased my Gary Moore Signature Gibson Les Paul. On that same day I tried out a Tokai Les Paul (no idea what model) which was an aged replica of a 1959 sunburst. It had all the gunk of an old guitar and if I remember correctly, I was initially told it was about £750 but later the sales guy said he'd made a mistake and it was actually around £1200!! Lovely guitar with a MASSIVE neck, and Dark Tobacco Sunburst. Really looked the part but I've never ever seen another one since... Should've bought it...
