- small precision:
mine is 2003, so it's not exactly the same as those currently produced .... ca will help those like me who prefer to purchase their used guitars.
to understand the difference between the models should be aware that the figure suggests (in thousands of yen) price of the catalog tokai guitar.
what makes a LS-90Q in 2003 will be referenced LS-105Q in 2010.
- The handle is rather typed 59 ', round but not too thick .... very nice.
the frets are more rounded than the gibson, AC assaults unless the fingertips during gliding.
the rosewood of the (very dark) and mahogany body (2 parts) did not have the same origin as those used by Gibson, but they are beautiful all the same species.
The maple top is covered with a thin veneer flamed maple, it avoids having to use a real table in curly maple (often bad for her) while significantly reducing costs for the same result .... aesthetic in the end.
the guitar is heavy (4.5 kgs), but it needed to have "his" Les Paul.
the varnish on the handle is less sticky than the gibson.
guitar vibrates well and sound "acoustic" is bright but also warm .... it's a sign of a quality violin.
- Once plugged into a tube amp .... is a vamp!
to have played quite a gibson les paul standard I can say that everything is (hit, sounds, Sustain, precision, power, harmonics etc.) is a real les paul you like them.
bam vintage microphones MKII (Alnico V) provide really good, their sound ranging between gibson gibson 490/498 57'classic and modern vintage.
neck pickup impedance: 7.8 kohms
impedance bridge pickup: 10.8 kohms
It should be noted that more recent versions of vintage paf MKII have an impedance higher and closer to modern vintage gibson.
- Overall Opinion
- Course this is not worth comparing it to a Korean or a epiphone tokai Chinese ..... we would have suspected.
the tokai is therefore a good alternative to Gibson, but the price also reflects a lower poly varnish (not nitrocellulose), an optional hard case, woods of different origins, production costs lower than in the states and bcp less prestigious name.
- I'll donnermon modesteavis on the instrument that I know and use every day ... (not a vrite on all guitars SERIES ...)
Tokai Love Rock L90 Made In Japan in 2007nserie: 0712821 color VF (violin finish)
bought used 45,000 yen Tokyo April 16, 2009 at Shimokura (JR line station Ochano-Mizu / street musician Tokyo) for information on the official list price in Japan is 94,500 yen Japanese tax (90,000 yen, or HT) for This MODEL ...
MODEL Tokai Gakki Made in Japan (not China as TOKAI LS 85, LS 88, TJ 78, ALS 48, ALC 50, LSS47 ....), and SG 43 for information about The models r Tokai percent when there is no mark on the guitar "Made in Japan" is that it's made in China (it's not bad as a tool but not as well finished that the MIJ ..)
Body: Saddle table in 2 parts, mahogany back
: Sleeveless al mahogany while some (short scale stud), touches rosewood (rosewood)
Pickups: 2 vintage microphones Paf MK2
lctronique: Japanese (Systm nitric pots, wires ,...): is better than Chinese or Koren, but we can upgrade to the CTS United States ... For example ...
Fitting: Japanese .... it looks like a lot of "Gotoh" all cella ..... but I've not said anything much sr!
- enjoyable round trs, trs good varnish, perfect rgonomie (lighter than a gibson les paul ... thank you for my back!), it does "not address a cot jou standing and "Calle is good" when it is played sitting ...
Sound good?? and although there are only cella of this guitar !!!!!!!!
- with Paf pickups and a Gibson brand lctronique United States "clean ".... trs violin making as well .... once the instrument well rgl harmonic m just ... ttez prjugs of your cot, close your eyes, open your ears: you play a gibson! it's also disturbing that ca!
- Overall Opinion
- I have 20 years of jou gibson (les paul, sg, nighthawk ..)... all trs ca is good in gnral but then I got tired of varnish "poissent "in the hands, and the quality of production Ingala .....
I'm looking for a gibson without his painted "mrdique my taste," with more lgret (lighter instrument), just as well made from quality wood and finished equivalent .. ..
For me I found my APRS IDAL ssay be there!: A long stud mij tokai LS 138 SEB (144900yens) or LS 143 SEB (150,150 yen) or NAVIGATOR (high-end home ESP) vautaussi that the price of a gibson ..... but unlike Gibson: You always your sr rev it good!
But as I n'aipas enough money, I just pay a tokai secondhand mij range of reasonably priced, I GRRF 2 pickups and Gibson 490 R T secondhand found for 80 euros on e-bay, I've redone my even while the electronic "CTS" and condo "orange drop "...... and I can guarantee you that this Small scratches simply does not envy a Gibson Les Paul made in 2008 or 2009 .......... ca me simply allowed to sell my 2 Gibsons when I realized that Early tokai "rang better"!
Some brand amricaines live (good for them) for over half a century on a "name", a "legends" on "mode if you "...... your music: open your ears and your wallet ..... not wise!!

It sends the bridge pickup and sauce is trs diffrent the neck pickup, more aggressive while the neck pickup is round.

Super-clear sound in spite of what I expected (humbuckers)

, The weight can be ... although personally I feel my prfre scratch!
-The ergonomics .. but as I said above is not a les paul achte for a.
I do it again a thousand times that choice!
the finish is superb and the sound also ... everything has a price reasonable trs!
I put 10 because I am totally satisfied .. it has everything you ask of a Les Paul!
I drop a point because of the electron leaving DSIR.

I used to seek the advice of Damico on my guitar, "you take the same finishes at Gibson dj're over 3000" So much for the skeptics!
I rgl the problem of lack of precision in the micro replaceable by EMG85/89.
alnico always sound so hot but still won in PCHE and tidy ...
So nothing wrong .. fans of Les Paul you will be delighted!
it is warm and clear, sends a steak when it is needed and it is sweet and singing when you want.
I love my love rock
