2021 Tokai Japan LS-129 GT Gold Top & new Hard Case




What an absolute beauty this guitar is! Tokai really do make a fabulous guitar & this is no exception. Another guitar that I suspect was a shop demo, this 2021 guitar looks mint. No marks, no scratches, no dents. The film is still on all the plastic covers. The guitar is, like all my guitars, supplied with a hard case.

For anyone who may not be aware, I believe the "LS" stands for "Les Paul Standard" & the number afterwards relates to the finish quality, with the Japanese models going up from LS-62 right up to LS-200. The LS-129 is one of the higher end models just below the LS-132 (also listed on this site) All in all, a fabulous guitar that will be hard to let go :)

This Tokai LS129 GT is finished with a beautiful gold top. Built to the highest of Japanese standards, the guitar has everything you’d want from a vintage Les Paul. Tokai has been making these guitars for over forty years, a fact attested to by both the minute attention to detail and high component quality. They don’t come around very often either 

TOKAI Japan LS-129 GT  

The Tokai LS125GT combines features from classic Les Paul guitars, for an unmistakable look and a very affordable price point for the level of quality and Japanese craftsmanship. Vintage correct appointments abound, from the top hat bell knobs with pointers, to the PAF-Vintage MK2 pickups. In terms of playing feel, the 50's/60's neck profile is supremely comfortable, while the  Maple gold top looks fabulous

CASE Brand new Thomann fitted hard case

All in all it's an excellent guitar from Tokai Japan that's hard to find here in the UK

Hard Case

As said many times, all my guitars come shipped in a new black hard case which is included in the price. I find this is the safest way to avoid damage in transit. This case is a nice new fitted one from Thomann in Germany. Alternatively, if you are collecting the guitar and, like some buyers have cases coming out of their ears, that's no problem, I'll adjust the price (usually around a £30 discount) and I can usually find you an old gigbag to take the guitar away in. The only hard and fast rule I have is that I won't ship a guitar in a gigbag

If you are further interested in this guitar, you can either email me with any queries & I'll do my best to get back to you within 24 hours.

Or, you can buy easily and safely using the PayPal "buy now" button. Don't forget to select the right option using the drop down menu on price, i.e. Collection, UK shipping or EU shipping. If in doubt, please email me first as Highlands & Islands can sometimes be a little dearer for shipping
