    Here's my Tokai LS-65 next to my Tokai LS-80 Quilt. Although they are not solid tops, they are still very nice to behold..
    Enjoy!

    An '02 (I think) LS-75 that was factory reliced (limited run for UK market):

    Also a decent veneer top. The other thing that Tokai is great at is grain-matching on the backs.
