Here’s my first impression video of the Tokai LC-107S. Tokai Guitars as it’s known in out part of the world (actually the name is Tokai Gakki Company) was started 1947 but didn’t start manufacturing electric guitars until 1975. Tokai is part of those Japanese brand known as “lawsuits guitars” due to the fact that they produced copies of American brand models.
From the beginning the Tokai Less Paul model was called “Reborn Old” then changed to “Les Paul Reborn” but in the 80’s the name landed as “Love Rock”, a name that is commonly used nowadays. Generally if you search for opinions about Tokai you will find positive views.
So, I first heard about Tokai in the mid 2000’s and have been looking for an opportunity to try them out since then… No luck as I have never seen one in a Swedish store. And as my old Gibson Les Paul needs some expensive fixes I took the leap and ordered a new one from Finland! The LC-107S seems to be, as I say in the video, the low end of the high end Tokai’s. Still it’s around 1460 Euro’s (or about 1740 USD) so it’s not low budget buy.
A full review of this Tokai will come when I have had some time to really try it out, until then you will have to settle for this first impression. Of course it will pop up in various videos as time goes by.
