New 2004 Love Rocks....ugly

Post by rgrabows » Thu Jun 03, 2004 6:27 pm

Did Gibson get to Tokai and force them into additional changes. The horn on this thing is ugly ...headstock also.

Eww, I hope it means "limited edition" as in we won't see anymore of these ugly thingers. It looks like a Dean or something. If I wanted a Dean I would go buy one of those, not a Tokai.

I like it.
I don't look at it as a LP, like the regular
Love Rocks.
This is a more wild edgey guitar.
Reminds me of the ESP/LTD EC1000

Very, very similar.

Any remember the Aria 'Gerry Cott' model from the late seventies or early eighties? This looks a lot like that. It's not much of a Lester, but it's still a nice looking alternative

I got mine from the same seller in Canada, A Black, w/gold.
I Love the looks, when I got it I was Sooo happy with the feel and tone.
The Abalone looks better in person than the pictures can do it justice.
The frets are the biggest I've ever seen, and there are 24 of them. I know it's a twisted take on a Les Paul, but It's so solid and close to flawless that I couldn't be more pleased!
