Nice guitar, Rossi ... 8)

... but I don't like that 'clown burst' and if you go to the close-up of the fretboard ... too much filler around the inlays - in my sense ... :-?

That LS-320 has been on ebay for months now. I agree that clownburst is very ugly. Plus the flame on that one is weak. Hishashi keeps dropping the price.

I dunno, the guy wants $2K for it...just seems a bit high to me. But I'm no expert on Tokais. My first Tokai Love Rock should be here any day.

Which one's the clownburst? The LS60's not really that nice colourwise.

Hey, remind me again what a "Clown Burst" is......is it the color, the graining of the wood or both?

But which clown is it named after? "Bozo The Clown"? Or just Clown's in general. I can't see why really. Do they use this term on the LP Forum? There seems to be several clown's on there. And dont forget guy's, they may take offence if a term coined in reference to "real" Les Paul's is used by peasents to describe their "wannabee gibson's". :cry:

Ketchupburst notwithstanding, the veracity of Hisashi's descriptions are to be taken with a boulder of salt.

Guys cool down ... 8)

The name "Clown burst" has it's origin in this forum !!!!!!!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

There are many of us who don't like this color Cherry sunburst ... me too !! 8)

... and Andi-0 called it "clown burst" because he's got an LS150 in honey burst I think ... :roll:

So - nothing serious - but those who own a CSB have to cope with this name in the future ... :wink:
