Re: I finally became a very unhappy Tokai owner.

8) talk to the kurosawa international headquarter office only, not with the shop anymore. it doesnt matter how much it cost already but this is totally the kurosawa's fault and responsibility. if they dont treat this ok then its their sin really. so talk to the intl office, the email addy given abov...

Re: I finally became a very unhappy Tokai owner.

8) usually the japanese guitar shops dont have any well-english speaker so when they recieve the email/call in english from the foreigners then they just be whatever???. so email or call their headquarter office and talk to a sure-english speaking person. then you be ok! good luck!

8) if your guitar is based on LC230S then the top is a 2-piece maple top. not a 1-piece mahogany top of LC235. real sorry to hear your bad experiences this time with tokai and kurosawa. tokai is usually very good with the customers but they may not be able to reply well or sure in english. kurosawa is usually ok but they are also very weak in the english communication. i understand your heavy dissapointment so i suggest you to email to the tokai CEO mr.adachi directly. he is known to be very friendly and helpful with his foreign customers. he uses the english well i guess. also, try to email the kurosawa headquarter office, not the shop. they may then respond you ok. again, sorry to hear your ^&*( experiences with the japanese this time. japan is still japan but not like they used to be anymore in many ways lately.

Re: I finally became a more or less proud Tokai owner.

8) gibson 1957 les paul custom has a 1-piece mahogany body so yours should have it too if its a good copy of it like the one jimmy page played. the kurosawa original description says so but yours looks to have a 2-piece mahogany body like LS235, the japanese premium class les paul custom with the pr...

Re: Is this a real Tokai?

8) yours are also from this tokai semi/custom order service but you get more options than the regular customers because you are a direct customer of the tokai CEO. LS540~320 are not the custom order guitars but the limited quantity guitars made by the requests by the customers.

Re: Is this a real Tokai?
