I picked up a GT love rock a while ago from a forum member and it is absolutely gorgeous, so nice I bought a second love rock.
It's a consignment item so it's used. I think the first three numbers were five zero something. I know it started with a five but that "666" caught my attention. :smile: If I didn't already have a nice Love Rock I definitely would have picked it up. PaulS - yes they really are very well made and good sounding guitars. I have a geniune Gibson Les Paul and the Love Rock I own sounds and plays just as well.JSD's Guitar Shack said:They state mahogany but Korean Tokais have maple necks. Do you happen to recall the whole serial # ? Was it old stock or used? $450 with a case is retardedly cheap is its new.
Yeah this is a great deal. I was trying this one through a Peavey Classic as most of the other amps were taken up by customers trying other guitars. Try to get it this week if you can as I'm sure somebody will snap it up. Good luck Robert.Robert1950 said:I should have a look a this thing next week. I'll be in area.
Well this one played and sounded quite good. This one's made in Korea so it's one of the good ones.david henman said:...i thinks its a great deal IF its made in japan or korea and not china or taiwan. songbird are NOT known for great prices, so i am skeptical.
I told you it was a good one Robert. Epiphones are nice guitars, I used to have an Epiphone Les Paul, but I think Tokais blow them out of the water in so many ways. Hopefully it'll still be around by March. I also saw when I was there the Tokai Love Rock that I was originally going to get is still behind the counter. At one time I thought about buying it then getting it refinished as it was pretty rough looking as the previous owner had it refinished and whoever did it didn't do a very good job as the finish is peeling off but it was too expensive. Also the truss rod cover is missing on that one. When you do get it post a picture or two. It's a nice looking guitar.Robert1950 said:Stopped by songbird and noodled around on this for 4 to 5 minutes using a Vox Pathfinder (I have one at home, so I know the sound). Almost mint and nicely setup. No fretbuzz or fret outs. Strings were 10s, I use 11s, so my vibratos were overdone and wonky, but I liked the sound - neck pup with tone rolled off wasn't muddy at all. Without really close inspection, this guitar could have fooled me. Better than any Epiphone LP I've tried. Didn't give it a full workout cause I'm neverous and totally lacking in confidence when I try a guitar out in a store. The neck is fatter than I'm used to, but not so fat I couldnt get used to it. I have a MIJ Epi and a Hamer at home, both with slim profile necks - I have small hands.
If it's still around by the Ides of March, I may break down and get it. As long as no other financial ambushes happen by then.
Just so there's no confusion, that's my Hohner in the picture. I'm going to check out the Tokai one when I get back to Toronto on Monday, however. I live around the block from Songbird, which is handy.PaulS said:Somebody should jump that quick.... if it is anything like mine it's the closest your gonna get to the real thing for under a grand.
Nice '56 replica there. The one in Songbird is a '57 with HBs.PaulS said:Somebody should jump that quick.... if it is anything like mine it's the closest your gonna get to the real thing for under a grand.
That's the way it is. Enjoy. You lucky (*&%(*%*)(*^$#. :wink:nine said:Sorry guys, but I snapped the Tokai up.
