Will consider anything from LS150 and above. PM me if interested.
at that money, why arent you looking at a used gibson les paul standard ?
Because he's looking for a Tokai?
for the same money, the les paul standard is a no brainer , thats why im askin .makes a lot more sense to buy the real deal which will hold its resale value considerably better.the mij are great guitars in their own right and ive played a ls150 , which played like a dream, but id still be looking at the standard if i was planning on spending that kind of money.
I'm looking for a secondhand guitar, as both MIJ Tokais and Gibsons are overpriced new. The LS 150 has better quality control than an LP Standard, from what I can gather, and should still be well below the £1k mark. I have looked at Gibsons, but I have done my homework and found that Tokais are almost on par with Gibson historic reissues in terms of quality for a lot less cash.
Finally, having searched locally for a decent LP, they are a little thin on the ground (I'm thinking of anything above the usual raft of Epiphones, Staggs, etc) but if you know where one can be found let me know.
if you have your heart set on a tokai loverock, have you tried bairds yet ? im sure they stock tokais as ive certainly seen some tokai strats there, give jon a ring there and ask him for his best price on a loverock, he may be able to cut some kind of deal with you. im glad to see you are interested in a les paul type guitar, i own a 2001 gibson 1958 historic reissue les paul with paf pickups and nothing comes close to the les paul sound. good luck 8-)
Bairds have a few jap lp tokai's in stock
and more arriving in the next couple of days :D 02890 351351
Cheers Oxo, I'll give them a call and see what they have.
