2009 Tokai Love Rock LS-95F Standard Burst Cherry Sunburst w/ Case, Japan

$1,449.99

+ shipping

Up for sale, a 2009 Tokai Love Rock model LS95F in exceptional, 100% original condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original Lifton-style hardshell case. 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 2oz, this Love Rock's acoustic response balances clear note attack and treble detail with fundamental warmth. Via the PAF-Vintage MK2 pickup pair which meter at 7.55k ohms, the bridge pickup has a cutting growl, while the neck has a smooth, percussive character with airy trebles. This Love Rock benefits from a professional 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 tight, straight flame figuring in the top. Cosmetic wear is limited to a scant few tiny dings and faint scratches on the body as a whole, almost entirely relegated to the back. The smooth gloss on the neck profile is nigh flawless.

A Tokai-branded Lifton-style brown hardshell case with pink plush interior is included.
