Hi John,

An awesome thread.
I feel left out cos I don't have a flame top Tokai anymore - only the Gibson.

it is pictured next to an '82 LS-100S ( for credibility)

Thanks Peter. Lovely burst ! I love the color.

With your permission, I'll post a pic of your former 1983 LS-200
sometime in December.

I personally think that LS-200 has one of the nicest tops Tokai ever produced, but it was still a very smart trade.
If you saved other pics of it, please feel free to post them.

Hey mate,
No Wuckin' Forries.

I'll search through my trunk load of old photos and see what other Tokai flame top pics I have.

Peter

I'm going to leave what many would consider 5 stellar vintage LS-200 examples for last, and others will be posted from late 1979 through 1985.
