2009? LS160??

Post by Loudmouse » Tue Aug 20, 2019 4:06 pm

For sale in my town, I know nothing about it or the seller. buyer beware.

When first listed this morning at $200 less I thought about going and taking a look, but something didn't seem quite right about it.

I heard they threatened Tokai with a lawsuit, but they never got to Cort?

Hard to say what that is beyond it being a 2009 Tokai LS.

LS160's weren't flame tops though except for UK and that has the Japan headstock. Can't see for sure if it has a one piece back. It could be a LS140F or a LS98F.

It should say in the little pink booklet but not always. The fact that the pickguard isn't attached usually means a higher model number but you'd need some cavity shots to figure that out. It might even be a LS260.

I don't think there was an LS160 in 2009. I bought a brand new LS150 in 2009.

Ask for pickup cavities, specially bridge one, there should be a inscription with the model and colour finish there in black pencil ink

I think this is the same guitar.
Somebody bought it and knew what is was and is reselling.
Or this one and the first ad are some B.S. ad posted to collect whatever.

Maybe I should have checked it out when I saw it listed for $600! :o
