1984 Tokai Japan Love Rock TLS80 Custom Order Les Paul (Cherry Sunburst)
Made by Tokai's Japanese factory in 1984, the TLS series were some of the best Gibson style guitars from the period (and that includes Gibson USA models..). This appears to be a custom order TLS80 model (or similar) with a two-piece mahogany back and maple top with a laminate flame (poly finish instead of the usual nitro on an 80).
Rounded one-piece mahogany neck with an 18 degree headstock pitch (models below 80's had a 14 degree headstock), rosewood fretboard with 22 frets. Loaded with TOKAI '57 PAF pickups and all original pots/wiring. Weighs 4.2kg's.
These spared no expense in emulating the Gibson design and features Trapezoid inlays, Les Paul style font and an open book headstock. There's a reason these are so desirable amongst vintage buyers!
Great vintage condition with a few scuffs as pictured, some slight clouding on the headstock. No signs of structural damage or repairs. Seems to be all original. Frets have plenty of life and were polished (along with a fretboard oil) prior to listing. Also received a full teardown and clean plus a truss adjustment, plays great with a smooth low action.
