2012 Tokai HLS 240 SF refinished top. The HLS series has 3.7 degree neck plane angle, which makes the bridge sit nice and low like vintage guitars. Other than that, the appointments were similar to those of regular Tokai series.

This is easily one of the best Tokai, or even Les Paul that I have owned. 9.3 lbs, one piece back, fat 59's neck, Madagascar fret board, nice low neck angle, Tokai original brown/pink case. The original finish on the guitar is lacquer top (lacquer-over-poly).

It has some normal wear and tear on the body & top. Refinished top is in a nice nitro shin, but not glossy like poly finish. Frets are in very good condition.

There's a bit of red/brown over spray on the body that can show slightly "grainy" comparing to a factory finish, but they blend in with the body color well, and not noticeable at all from 3 feet away.

Refinishing process:
