You are looking at one of the holy grails of vintage Japanese Les Paul collecting. This is an original 1981 LS-120 Tokai Love Rock Les Paul Standard. Please read up about these legendary guitars to see what all the fuss is about.Just picking this thing up and playing acoustically you can instantly feel the resonance of the old wood. Its a beautiful aged cherry burst top with lots of flame & grain visible. Some of the features you get here are a 2 piece top, nitrocellulose finish, original huge sounding double cream Dimarzio humbuckers, chunky 59 profile neck and fret-end binding etc. It looks like a solid top too. When we get these 120s in they usually have a maple veneer.
Comes complete with original Tokai HSC. The guitar is in perfect working order. No structural or electrical issues. Truss rod fine, neck dead straight and plenty of life left in the frets. Some lovely ageing going on.
The binding is tight, nicely yellowed with no separation from the body. The metal hardware has an aged patina all over. No big nasty paint chips.
Nothing harsh has happened to it over the years. No breaks, repairs or mods. Just the standard playwear youd expect on an almost 40 year old Les Paul. There is odd little nick in the paint, some patches of wear and some belt buckle wear on the back.But nothing bad at all. Comes with its rare & correct original tan pink-lined Tokai HSC. With tokai plate on side. All working and with key. The latches are all working. A very rare & sought-after guitar. S, Canada, Australia, Europe and obviously the UK!
