Japan Epiphone LP Special Lacquer Series TV Yellow

This is another guitar I have to let go to make way for my R0's return from Florian Jager's workshop. This is a great Special. Typical Fujigen quality (the fretwork puts Gibson to shame). Very thin lacquer finish shows a few nicks and dings. Original (and decent quality) Epiphone gig bag. ?350 cash ...

Had a stab at recording with Yamaha THR10 and cubase. Very pleased with the OX4 pickups. These 80s Tokais are so hot. I'll take this over an R7 every time.

Tried to photo the s/n but it's impossible to capture. Holding the guitar under a strong lamp you have to tilt it some to catch the s/n. Not easy to see and impossible to photo.

I read it as 1014971 - although I'm not sure of the second and third digits as they've faded so much. G...

WTB springy sound pre 82

Am new to the forum and to the joys of Japanese guitars after scoring an amazing Tokai LS150 in Tokyo last year. Am now in the market for a 1979 to 82 Tokai strat, ideally rosewood board. Please give me a shout if you have one for sale. Thanks
