2019 Tokai "Vintage Series" LSS-124 See-Thru Yellow & new Hard Case
What a lovely guitar this is. Finished in see-thru yellow, which is, incidentally a darker shade than TV Yellow this Les Paul Special from Tokai Japan is really built to a high standard. I have had an LSS-104 in the past which was lovely but this higher grade LSS-124 is even better. Tokai's model identification can be tricky but in simple terms, the higher the number is, the better the guitar is. It has something to do with the price in Yen in Japan. With the Les Pauls, you can buy an LS-33 or an LS-200. The LS-200 is obviously much, much better than the LS-33.
This guitar has a serial number dating it to 2019. It looks to have been barely used and I couldn't find any blemishes on the African Mahogany body or neck. The body is made from two pieces as the photos in the gallery show.
The guitar has a thicker 50's style neck and plays beautifully even with my small hands & Tokai's own P90 pickups have a fabulous tone

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
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
