2008 Tokai Love Rock LS-95F Standard Burst Cherry Sunburst Near-Mint w/ Hangtags, Japan


+ shipping

Up for sale, a 2008 Tokai Love Rock model LS-95F in near-mint, 100% original condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original gigbag and hangtags. Crafted in Japan, this Tokai faithfully captures all the best qualities of a Les Paul Standard, featuring a mahogany body, two-piece flame maple+sycamore top, mahogany neck with a bound rosewood fretboard, and PAF-style humbuckers.

Weighing 9lbs 6oz, this Love Rock's acoustic response balances clear note attack and treble detail with fundamental warmth. Via the PAF-Vintage MK2 pickup pair, the bridge has a roaring bite, metering at 8.2k ohms, and the neck has a smooth, percussive character with airy trebles, metering a 7.5k ohms. This Love Rock has been professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 10-46 strings, low action, and spot-on intonation.

The gloss "Violin Finish" reads as a traditional Cherry Sunburst, highlighting broad flame figuring in the two-piece maple top. Cosmetic wear is limited to just a couple faint marks on the body as a whole. The smooth gloss on the neck profile is immaculate. The pickguard and rear control cavity covers retain their protective factory film, a testament to the limited use this guitar has seen since new.

The original Tokai-branded padded gigbag and hangtags are included.
