I used to gig with these guitars, but today they are replaced with a Burny SA 100, a Burny junior and the 1980 FLG 240/150.
They are simply better guitars, and for the price of the two Gibsons I can by 10 Burnys, and a new car!!
(source : Gibson Sunburst Les Pauls From ´58 to ´60 by Yasuhiko Iwanade, Rittot music 1996) The third guitar from the 80-81 period is the FLG 90.
It has solid one piece back but a flamed veneer top and Fernandes L8001 vintage pickups.
I have owned original 62 Stratocasters and an original 1959 sunburst Les Paul flametop.
I sold that to a band mate in 1968 for what today is equal to 500$, because he was a better lead player than I was!! I have just sold my 1966 Gibson ES 345 and my original 1958 les Paul junior.
The older ones are just ok, on par with many MIJ Greco’s, Yamahas and Ibanez’s from the same period.
As you can see from the pictures there is no Les Paul or Super Grade script on the headstock of the Tokai/Burny FLG-60.
I’m told that not many 240´s were build, because the production line FLG 150 was just as good, and it had the same features.
The top of my 1977-78 FLG 70 is made of 3 pieces of maple, it is the same with the body- 3 pieces, but the mahogany is of very high quality, so the guitar sounds good and resonant unplugged, especially after I have changed, tuners, bridge and tailpiece.
These early Les Pauls all have the Les Paul gold script on the headstock, and stamped serial numbers on the back of the headstock.
This is true from a player’s point of view, but it is not always true from a collector’s point of view.
Today Tokai and Grecos are the must collectable, but this may change tomorrow.
