Not quite an LSB45, so any ideas?

Post by simoncroft » Sun Oct 21, 2012 10:41 am

Hello, first post, so forgive me if I make any mistakes...

I have a Tokai branded bass that is neither totally like the catalogue LSB45, nor does it have any of the typical 'Fakai' give-aways. It looks just like the classic cherry sunburst catalogue model, complete with dot inlays, but it is a fixed neck, not bolt-on.

The front of the headstock says Tokai, Love Rock Model and the back has Made in Korea (not MAKE in Korea) under the finish. Truss rod cover has three screws.

If anyone can identify it, I'd be most grateful.

(BTW, thanks to your forum, I've learned that I once owned 'Fakai' Love Rock serial 0001. And yes, it originally came from a dealer in Canada. It was a really great guitar, so it won't hurt too much if I've been suckered twice!)
