Re: Tokai LS80 VS Gibson Les Paul original 50s

Re: Tokai LS80 VS Gibson Les Paul original 50s

LS80 is abit More interesting considering the price what you get. Just wondering how quality and spec compare to a new Gibson Original 50s.

Re: Which of these Tokai would you chose?

That particular 150 was discussed on the forum very recently. It's had some pictures added which prove it's the real thing. The 150 is a higher spec guitar with features that can't be modded (lacquer finish, long tenon etc). For that price it's definitely a better deal if you can stomach the condit...

Which of these Tokai would you chose?

Hey guys, I stumbled across these two Tokai Love Rock guitars that seem like pretty sweet deals. If you had to chose between the two, which would you pick and why? LS150f I think? https://reverb.com/item/32805112-tokai-ls150-premium-mij-nitro-finish-deep-tenon-neck-solid-2-pc-maple-cap-1-pc-mahog-bo...

I wouldnt class that as high end .. the flagship model in 2005 was the LS-380, so this is more of a mid range model..

if your in europe dont forget the 25% import duty...

Thanks Villager. Would you suggest a better alternative?

Is this a high end Tokai?

Is this a really premium high end Tokai? If so, looks like a pretty good price. Looks to be on the newer side though. I've heard not so good things about Tokais quality these days compared to vintage. https://reverb.com/item/32805112-tokai-ls150-premium-mij-nitro-finish-deep-tenon-neck-solid-2-pc-ma...

I was completely serious in my above post & there is also the 'Make an Offer' option for the seller's item. :)
Thank you. I will consider that. πŸ˜„

Is this guitar higher quality in general than a gibson les Paul studio?

Re: Good deal or no? GRECO 59-70

Thank you for the advice. Much appreciated. In your opinion would this level of guitar EG800 or this model etc be the best bang for the buck for a vintage Japanese Les Paul?
