The Tokai LS196 Love Rock is a true aficionado’s instrument.
With incredible attention to detail, the LS196 recreates the iconic 1957 Gold Top model in tone, looks and feel.
No detail is overlooked thanks to Tokai’s legendary quality, and as with all Tokai Premium series instruments, the LS196 is an instrument worthy of heirloom status.
Featuring vintage correct appointments including maple veneer headstock overlay, one piece back, nitrocellulose lacquer finish, carved maple cap, 50’s style neck profile, top hat bell knobs accompanied by pointers and equipped with PAF-Vintage MK2 pickups, the LS196 is not just a guitar – it’s a work of art.
