I bought it in Carrboro, North Carolina from a fellow. I am clearly blind, I didn't see it on the registry.

What are the likely pickups in this Sept. 1980 LS80? What do these go for in the UK?

I was in a nice guitar shop in Bath UK last summer and was shocked what Gibsons go for.

It isn't registered in the Registry. I am logging vintage Tokai's myself for several years now.

It should have uncovered double white Goto S stamped pickups. RDC around 8.50K

You are correct! I pulled the bridge pickup and here's what I found. Exactly like you said. Might be that somebody put the covers on afterwards.

Nobody asked what it cost me. I suppose its worth letting folks know for the sake of market value that I traded a very nice Gibson Les Paul Traditional plus top for it. Even swap. Those go for anywhere between $1300-1700 on the used market in Nort Carolina. I think the Tokai is more 'valuable' both ad a collectible but intrinsically as an instrument and craftwork too.

I see the pickup covers aren't soldered. You can easily remove them to see what bobbin color is underneath.
