Beauties reborn!
I found myself ogling as part of my vintage Tokai reacquisition quest. Thanks for still hosting the photos in their original places!

How can you tell what model they are if there's no sticker on the back of the headstock or no stamp on the last fret?

if the example is unmolested & retains the original pickups, this can help to determine grade.

also, some examples may be stamped internal/pickup routes.

So many beauties!

Not a flame top but not quite plain either, somewhere in between, figured top maybe? The grain really changes at different angles.

1979 LS100 OS refinished into some sort of lemony burst.

That's a nice 100. Little birdseye blisters ?? It's got character.

Thanks to Wulfman for hosting the pic :D


Pictured here is the 1981 Tokai LS-60 OS that I recently acquired.

The maple top is completely covered in 3D flame & figure, and also contains several hundred very small birds eye.

The photo does not do the maple top justice; it looks much more impressive in person.

It's difficult to believe Tokai put this maple top on a LS-60 but I'm glad they did. :D

This one belonged to villager but I'm not sure has made it into this gallery yet.
1980 LS-80 - fantastic top IMHO... flecked, varied, subtle flame and grain.
