KLS165-LW/SN & KLS170F LW/SN -Sublimation Models with Great Design Value
LW means Light Weight
we selected light weight mahogany body back in Tokai Factory, and selected clogged rosewood too.
SN means Slim Neck
we orderd this model as New Slim Neck Grip. we brought in Original 1960 Burst (last slim neck type) owned us to Tokai Factory. Factory manager surveyed 1960 Burst. KLS165-LW/SN & KLS170F LW/SN ‘s neck shape same sa our original Burst！
For more than 20 years, Tokai LS series products are famous top-quality guitars of Japanese Les Paul type with amazing sound.
Tokai Factory director and our Yokohama’s specialist staff for Tokai guitars developed KLS165 & KLS170F together.
Those series are inspired by 50’s Gibson style and got really spectacular spec.
1. 3.8 degree neck angle
Modified regular 4.5 degree neck angle to 3.8 degree.
This is a prior design for sound balance because the 3.0 degree (e.g. latter wraparound and burst) is not enough to adjust string height.
It has great long sustain sound compared with 4.5 degree neck guitars.
Each tone knocks out famous Tokai Les Paul players like Billy Gibbons and Joe Walsh… hopefully.
Setting low position string heights equal with high position, you can get low action setting.
2. Moved bridge pickup closer to bridge
We modified the design value of NC router to move bridge pickup 0.5mm closer to bridge.
That makes brighter sound and contrast with bridge pickup sound more clearly.
Especially this affects when you plugged in Marshall Amps with drive sound.
3. Coil tap function
Coil tap is available for the volume pot of neck and bridge pickups when you pull volume pots.
Each pickup has coil tap and that enable to play with broad sound variations.
4. Moved neck pickup 1mm closer to bridge pickup
We believe this feature is irresistible attraction for Les Paul fan.
The slight distance stages great mood with unique sound like.

Tokai is one of the most famous Japanese electric guitar brand.
All guitars are hand-made with their original production skills since 1977.
Popular series are LS, LC and ES.
Tokai uses “glue” for attaching fingerboard and neck.
Just few craftsmen, who allowed to do gluing, do this process with special skill to make no gap between fingerboard and neck.
Tokai guitar sounds with great resonance by itself.
We have a lot of stock of Tokai brand guitar including main series LS and LC constantly, and special order models and rare prototype as well.
Here is special staff who chose wood material at Tokai factory at our store!
