I would say not MIJ because of the 3 hole TR and the white cavity covers. That is the Tokai giveaway of not MIJ. I have a few MIJ Burnys and they all have 2 screw TR and black covers. Also looks like a plastic nut. Mine have bone.

@togps

That one looks nice. I am in America. That one is pretty pricey with the conversion. Looks like a 2012 model. I wonder if they have any of those left at tokai.

I have a Gibson one 67 reissue from 2000. Never had a Korina one. I know there are pretty different to the 67 ones. The Gibson one I have is pretty regular with Gibson quality. Which IMO sucks compared to the quality of the Tokai or other MIJ (Fujigen etc) guitars that I have. I used to really like ...

Thanks for the info. The Gibsons has 3 screw truss rod covers for the flying v. Thought it might be the same for the MIJ Tokais.

So, I guess this is what the MIJ ones look like right?

Tokai Flying V Korina

https://www.ebay.com/itm/163426652514?ul_noapp=true I know nothing about Tokai Vs. I would assume they are the same at the Love Rocks with SN. I contacted the seller he says it does not have a SN. My guess it would be on the back of the head like the LS series. Does this sound fishy to you guys? Are...

Thanks for info on that. I contacted Tokai and they still have a SEB body quilted maple top. That is just the body un-built. So, they can make that into a guitar for me. Going to get pretty custom with the specs. Nitro, custom color burst, gold hardware, locking tuners, abalone inlays and ebony FB. ...

@Paladin2019 He got mad at me for making him tear the guitar apart and take pictures of it. Then told me to stay off his site. Then said he was not trying to scam anyone. What I find hard to believe is that they did not know before. The store has a guitar listed for $70,000 USD. Then plenty of other...

It is a LS200 for sure. No FEB no Seth Lovers and has 200 written in the PU cavity. The guy has it listed as a 320 and is charging a 320 price for it. I think the guy clearly knows it is a 200. He went out of his way to not send the pics through Reverb.com and ask for my email address. Here is all t...

I will see what the pics show when they send them to me. If it does not have FEB then I would say it is not a 320. If it has FEBs then I can go from there. Might be worth a trip down there at that point. On a side note I do not see what the big deal with amber cell inlays vs white inlays is. They ar...

It looks like the cellophane wrap is still on the case handle. Then it sort of looks like the cellophane plastic is still on the control cavity. But they do not have the warranty card for it? (Me) Do you have any other pics of the guitar? Like a pick of the warranty card with the model # and SN on i...

@guitar hiro It has the white inlays. For a second they almost looked MOP cause they were so white. Did they put Amber cell inlays in some and not others? I saw this guiter a few months ago and thought the top was also boring. But they dropped the price by 20% the other day so I was thinking about i...

@Paladin2019 Thanks for the info about the caps. I did not know there was a difference from the models. I knew about the Seth Lovers and the Aluminum tail piece. Though those two are easily replaced. The FEB it the one thing that cannot be easily replaced. Though a Luther can do it. I have seen a fe...
