    I have been a serious fan of P90s since first playing them 12 years ago: Gibson Les Paul 56 Custom Shop, Juniors, Specials; an Edwards Les Paul Goldtop; and finally this Tokai Love Rock Special. Wolfetones stayed in the Special for the longest time, until I played 2 Gibson 56 Juniors and a Gibson 76 Special…both with stock pickups. Wow! So, in went some standard Gibson P90s…
    the neck is sweet and full, the middle is hollow and present and bridge is cutting and nasty.

    For this particular guitar, Gibson P90s are it…The Tokai Love Rock Special delivers the best of P90 tones, combining great sound and playability.
