I don't think Tokais are approaching Gibson prices, it's more like Gibson are cutting their prices to cope with the recession and get rid of the crap they produced in 2012.

Hi Lance,

That is a Korean guitar, of some description.

Tell tale points are the Tone & Vol knobs, shape of the nut, cream plastic cavity plates, colour of the green on the tuners, the usual Korean buffi ...

That would be an MIC ALS48CS (Cherry Sunburst).

The pickups are very rare, the bobbins were wound on the inner thigh of virgin Tibetan mountain goats. Mmmmm goat tone.

Very rare indeed.

Instead of Made in Korea, it will say "Make in Korea" on the decal.

If you search Make in Korea, you will get all the answers you seek.

It's a very low setup stratmoto, what string gauge do you use?

Hi messer,

10~46. It is the gauge that comes on the guitars from the factory.

To be clear, we are talking about the actual ALS48 ...

Perhaps it would help the luthier that you take it to if he has some setup specifications to compare where the guitar is now.

When I set the guitar up, for "lead playing", prior to shippi ...

Yes, it is a real Tokai ALS48. Chinese ALS48's have been around since 2006.

There are fake Chinese Tokais around, here is one that was.. ahem... "parallel imported" by some people in New ...

If it has an FC serial number prefix, it would be Made in China.

Fine Corp production moved largely from Korea to China quite a few years ago. Made in Korea Tokais will have "Made in Korea&qu ...

Looks like somebody changed the nut, which is generally a good thing, compared to the fa ...

Actually, a little bit of a brain fart there.

The bridge has the Korean shaped saddles, the knobs are the same colour as the Korean models.

Block inlay, never seen them before on an ES60. The 3 screws in the TRC are black, the same as the Kore ...
