So, I'm interested in Tokai Love Rock Les Paul copies but winded up confused with all the models names and stuffs.

There is the LS85, LS95, LS100 and so on... Some people say they all have the same quality but only differ by small details like quilt/maple top, pickups etc... Others say the quality goes up with the number.

Any Tokai expert here can help me?

Tokai guitars are really confusing when it comes to model numbers and such. The number that comes after LS is the MSRP in Japanese yen. The main difference between the ls80-ls90 models are aesthetic. It goes from solid finishes to quilted and flamed veneer tops. I believe 80-90 are two piece tops. Higher model numbers have solid tops and upgraded electronics. Check out www.tokairegistry.com and its associated forums for more detail.

I have a LS-85f and I love it.

I think i got the general idea after browsing that forum. Thanks

One question though... I owned a Edwards 85SD before and now looking at this Tokai i'm interested in. Both have the TOM bridge screwed directly into the wood, no screw studs or anything. Is this suppose to be good or bad?

i have an '84 goldstar (they changed the name from springysound after being sued, i think). it could use a refret (it's been played, i got it second-hand off ebay), but i'd vastly prefer it to a USA fender strat. it's more of a vintage-style strat though, if you don't like the 7.25" radius, 21 frets etc., you might want to look elsewhere.

i assume springysounds are equally as good, they're more sought-after at least.

if you want more info, the tokai registry forums and japanaxe forums would be worth a look, they'll have people who can help you who are experts in these guitars.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.
