Is this a real 1981 Tokai Love rock (Ebay content)?

All parts sell 335 pickguards that will fit just fine...I ordered a short one for my lefty Tokai ES 120 and it fit perfectly.

I love my 2007 MIJ ES 120...it outshines the 1997 Gibby 335 I owned and is easily on par with the mid 60s 335 I owned....

I put a Bigsby on my Tokai ES 120 and love it...I can't imagine playing without it now that I've grown accustomed to it.

That guitar looks like an Epi Dot Studio...does Tokai even make one similar to that...a 335 style with no binding, and only two controls for the pickups?

8) is it the gibson "custom made" plate? new or vintage? where did you get it man? very cool! There's a guy on Ebay who sells repro plates...they're very close to the originals. His are $15...originals go for $150 - $300...finding the repro clinched the deal as far as putting the Bigsby on my Tokai...
