Knobs for Tokai Love Rock

Post by Kaze » Thu Feb 22, 2007 12:03 pm

Hi, I've bought this lovely LS-200 from 1983 and one knob is brocken. I already ordered vintage bell knobs in amber from Gibson, but they don't seem to fit. Where can I get a set of the Tokai-knobs??

I guess you can ask tgtops or villager get ones used for you .It will take time as far as they don?t appear easily as some time ago...or you could order some new ones and keep old ones....I guess some parts are avalaible from Tokai or Gotoh maybe....

Thanks, btw, it was a LS-120 (maybe I want a 200.. ;-) ). Where can I order Tokai-stuff?

Kaze,

do the pots have solid shaft or split shaft ???

If they have a split shaft you have to press the 2 sides together ... then it may fit ...
... if not ... new pots ...

I replaced the dark amber knobs on my '84 Love Rock with Allparts ones, and they fit on no problem. The price was right too - about $10 a set of four.

I went with the gold ones and aged them. It turned out beautifully and much nicer than the dark ones.

Thanks, I just ordered a set of them. The first ones I got, didn't fit at all (without violence..).

YES, that was my problem too ... that's the reason why I asked if there were solid shaft or split shaft pots ... 8) 8) 8)
