Japanese Tokai Love Rock LS-85F Violin Finish
These guitars have a well deserved reputation for quality and superb sound and playability. This one is no exception.
Construction is a solid 2 piece Mahogany body, with a thick Maple cap that has a really nice subtle flame. This is mated to a deep set, fairly chunky C profile Mahogany 22 fret neck, that has a gorgeous dark Rosewood board. The tried and trusted, traditional Kluson style tuners and Tuneomatic bridge and stop bar do their job perfectly. Fire power is provided by a pair of Tokai's wonderful paf vintage mk2 Humbuckers, controlled by 3 way switching and a 2 volume, 2 tone set up. Weighing in at 9lb 4oz, the guitar plays beautifully and sounds sublime.
Condition is very good. All the electronics and hardware are in perfect working condition with no issues at all. The frets show some light chording indentations on the lower frets, but retain their shape very well and this certainly causes no issues. Plus there is loads of life in them should anyone wish to do any work on them in the future. Apart from the usual very light play/usage marks, there are only minor cosmetic flaws, which are mainly to the back and edges. These consist of a smattering of generalised very light belt marks and scratches, with some small soft dimples and some tiny nibbles on the headstock edges.
Complete with a very tidy Hiscox hardcase, this is an excellent example of brilliant classic Tokai.
