New to me '81 Tokai LS50. Just cleaning it up a bit prior to a set up and I need to fix the output jack but she is in surprisingly good condition for a 36 year old guitar. Thanks to @hedzup for the trade.
I don't see a centre seam in the top, I have an '82 and an '84, same model and colour as yours, both have 2pc centre seam solid tops, 2 pc tops is the norm and not always centre seam on LS50's and 60's.
Your top looks to be 1 piece, wonder if it's solid 1 pc or maybe a 1 pc veneer over solid, neither of which I've noticed on 1980's LS50 models before...
Anyway nice score I'm sure your going to like it, pups sound fine to me, I've never thought about changing them... maybe take a close up pic of the pup cavity walls to see how it's made.
