I just bought this sunburst Tokai ALS55 "Limited Edition" from my local guitar shop. Les Paul copy, Made in China, under japanese supervision. A third of the price of a Made in Japan Tokai Les Paul, but the woods and the electronics are not the same either... Specs here, from the Tokai France Facebook: BODY :Flamed Maple AAAA(Veneer) + Maple Top Mahogany Back NECK Canadian Maple Set-Neck NECK Profile U shape / 22F / R350 Scale 628.00mm FRETS Sanko SBB-213(Medium Jumbo Size) Made in Japan NUT Cow Bone(Width:43.0mm) FINGERBOARD Carbonized Jatoba Wood MACHINE HEADS SD800G_P04 Made in Korea BRIDGE [Tokai Original]LS-VBC Bridge Made in Korea [Tokai Original]LS-VTC Tailpiece Made in Korea PICKUPS [Tokai Original]LSC-F x 2 Made in Korea *Magnet:Ferrite CONTROLS 2V, 2T, 3way-SW STRINGS D'Addario 10-46 FINISH Poly Finish Not much infos about the Made in Korea pickups (Artec for Tokai?), but I really love the sound. Quite different from my Gibson Les Paul Studio. More upper mids and treble, more clarity, less low mids than the Gibson 490R and 498T, not too much output. That suits me since I mostly play jazz with a clean sound. They are quite responsive to the right hand, going from clean arpeggios to light crunch without touching the volume control. The neck is rather flat, like a 60's "slim taper", very nice to play. The weight is 4 kg, my Les Paul Studio is 4,5 kg. The sustain is loooooong, even unplugged I plug into a Fender Blues Jr (US made), a Fender Frontman 212 and an Orange Crush 35 RT. Different sounds, all good, but the Orange & Tokai couple is top! Working the controls you can go to Greenland, I mean Peter Green territory ! Nitro would have been nice but Poly finish is OK for me. My wife, who is also a musician but doen't play guitar, said:" Oh, this guitar sounds really good" Overall a very nice addition to my guitar collection !...and, No, they are not all sunburst!
