LP-style Love Rock LS98F Made in Japan

The Tokai “Les Paul Reborn” Les Paul replicas started around 1976 and around 1978. Well, It was a starting time of “lawsuit” guitars. Tokai made replicas are very good quality. The wooden materials are much better than the original Gibson – Tokai investigated the original 59 Gibson standard and analyzed it closely to produce a fine copy.
Now, their 70’s LS series are very difficult to find, even for collectors, but lucky form you we have one.
