Yes. If the guitar feature ebony fretboard, one pcs. back, nitrocellulose lacquer and 18 * head angle; you can be sure you have a LC100 - if not you own a LC60. Hope that helps. Have fun and enjoy your Tokai lady It's definitely nitro, one-piece back, and 18 degrees. It seems to me that I read in t...

So if it's rosewood then that would suggest that the guitar is an LC60? It's a bit of a confusion because it is most definitely a one-piece neck and I am 99% certain that the back is one-piece. The serial number dates it to 82' but I can find no other markings to indicate if it's a 60 or 100. Anythi...

I emailed that seller during his ebay auction too. He originally called the guitar an 80's Love Rock but showed a picture of a Korean one with the backwards controls and rounded horn. Afterward, he called it Korean but changed the picture to one of the more traditional design. I believe I recall the...

I was quite taken back by the listing. H e calls it a "Tokai" specifically in the title and then goes on to forge a very "informed" and "legitimate connection between the two brands. My limited research yielded no connection whatsoever - only a very vague existence of "Phoenix" exists on the web tha...

I have an 82' LC in wine red, according to it's serial number. Unfortunately, I have not managed to nail the model # precisely yet. From the information I can find, in 82' they made the LC50 and LC100 - the difference being # pieces in the body and neck and perhaps the fretboard material. On mine th...

I have an 82' LC-100 (wine red, mahogany top). It is not as bright as your typical maple top. There is, perhaps, a little more depth to the tone and a bit less snap. The all-mahogany is offset a little by the ebony fretboard which I'm sure brightens the tone a bit over rosewood. Course' I didn't eve...

Just thought I'd post an update. I managed to score a Seymour Duncan Jazz and a JB set for a really good price - wasn't was I thought I wanted, but I installed them and have been really suprised at how good they sound. The Jazz in the neck is really articulate - no more mud. I was concerned about th...
