Re: Neo Select?

Re: Best Love Rock model and year

The current LS196 is a fine choice if you like a plaintop. A lot of bang for the buck without costing you a fortune.

Re: TOKAI TA-35

Feel like I'm talking to myself here other than Joe..... Yahoo Japan will not ship speakers to the states because the magnets are considered a hazardous material by most of the traditional carriers. BUT they can shop prices from private carriers and I can only imagine what that would cost. I did fin...

Re: TOKAI TA-35

Thanks Joe! But I'm looking for the older version - with the volume / master on the top panel and the EQ knobs on the back.
Hope you're safe and well my friend.

Re: Tune of the day

Here's a great Eagles tune from that follow up Long Run record.
Really dark compared to their other stuff .... great solo by Felder:

Re: Tune of the day

I used to really not like the Eagles because they were soooo overplayed. But I like this tune: https://youtu.be/1bF01Z0XWj8 Classic... and a great song from their early days when they were more of a country pop band. Incredible songs with fantastic harmonies. And then they became an entirely differ...

Re: What's the Big Deal with this LS-160?

Sorry, I'm late to the party on this one.
Was there even an LS160 in 2001? I have an LS150 plaintop from 2009 and if I'm not mistaken, the LS160 came afterward.
I believe the current iteration of this guitar is the LS196

Re: 1981 ES-150J (ES-335 Style Tokai)

So on that note, I have to ask.....

Were/are the Tokai serial numbers sequential for ALL guitars (LP, SG, ES, etc) as they came out of production?
Or were the serial numbers allocated in order for the certain guitar types?

I always thought Mary Kay strats/tele's were pink. think you need to adjust your monitor :wink: off white trans That's kind of an inside joke (nicely played Ned!). There is a women's cosmetics company here in the states named Mary Kay - after the founder Mary Kay Ash. Their sales people form their ...

Re: Vintage cars from Japan anyone?

I'll check that doc out!! Forgot about the rear drum brakes. Were you ever a fan of the Porsche 914's? I recall that they were great little racers when hotrodded a bit. Back out in California as a kid in the SF Bay area, there was a great race track we'd go to .... Sears Point Raceway. Saw lots of g...
