Re: 1980 Love Rock LS50 with Dimarzios?

I would be surprised if they were the original pups since they are not still in the guitar, a lot can happen in 40 years. I'd say it's a bonus you got some old Dimarzios included in the sale. I'm not overly familiar with the inkies mind you, or old dimarzios but as far as I know they only made LS 50...

Re: 1980 Love Rock LS50 with Dimarzios?

Does it still have a circuit board for the electronics ? Many swap those out and if they don't like the pups swap them out to while they are at it. My 81 ls120 has Dimarzio pups of some kind. Double cream.

Re: 1981 LS60 v. 1981 LC60 - What was Tokai Thinking?

I'm pretty sure they did what they did in '81 to give us guitar nerds something to talk about in 2020... Or maybe it was marketing.

Re: WTB Set of DryZ’s

If you can find a set for $1000 i'd snap them up quick. I haven't seen any sell for that price in a long time.

Good luck bud.

Re: Newly bought Custom Edition Tokai. ID please.

I agree with mdvineng. I don't think the body is likely Tokai.The neck looks to be a Tokai with added string tree as mentioned and swapped out tuners. That board needs some conditioning with some lemon oil too.

Re: Broken E-string

If you were wailing so hard that you broke the thick E string then i'm betting the rest are fairly dead. When you get your new strings i would replace all of them, but i'd save the remaining 5 just in case you break another. Buy more than one pack of strings, the odds of breaking a string go up expo...

Re: What model is this SG

Real Korean Tokai Love Rocks/gibson clones have no serial number.

Yours is a real Made in China Tokai for the UK and other export places where the Gibson open book headstock is not allowed. The serial numbers font and style have changed for the Chinese ones over the years.

Re: Picked up an 03' Tokai Love Rock today, is it Japenese?

Yours is def MIJ. 2003 is a funny year because it falls between the 2000 catalog and the 2006 catalog. In 2000 your model was the LS75Q and in 2006 because of inflation it rose to become the LS90Q. Guitar came with MK2 pups originally. A kinda PAF/vintage styled pickup as so far as they are describe...
