Tokai LS-200

Here it is, the holy grail of Tokai guitars: My 1980 Tokai LS200 Love Rock. This vintage MIJ beauty has a top never seen before on a Tokai LS-200. I read an article in Japan that they invented a special cashew lacquer finish in the 1950s made from cashew nut shells that was used for this guitar. It cost me twice as much as a new Gibson Custom Shop Les Paul, but its easily twice as good and one of the rarest guitars in the world.
