Newbe here

Post by hendriks » Tue Nov 15, 2011 5:28 am

Hi , sinds a month I own 2 Tokai's , a Love Rock LS85(?) Goldtop(2009) and a SG from 1992 , both are in a great condition.
The seller from the SG told me it's a SG80 , but I can't find any information .
I hope you guys can help me out.

Welcome to the forum!
Nice guitars, there's no SG-80 in 1992, only a SG-60.

No they don't make an ES135 copy which is a single cutaway (think ES175) thin body with P90's in it:

Tokai's ES135 (or similar) is a 335 copy

Well, they make the same/similar guitar (thinner body) but with humbuckers in it...Premium Series FA235 (Gibson ES175).
