Does it have a 1 piece back? if it has it could be a LS-320,there weren't many models without a pickguard. Some pics inside the front pickup cavity and in the control cavity on the back would help a lot, sometimes the model number will be in the front pickup cavity.

Has anyone bothered to mention that the Tokai is Honduras mahogany? Spec wise that blows the Gibson out of the water,the Tokai will be better built and probably be worth more in the future. I have even had a great SG from the sixties but if i buy a new SG it would be a high end Tokai for sure.

I have a lemon drop BLS-95 and i bought it early last year for US $295 with a hard case..... :P It is a beautiful, well made guitar and an absolute bargain, the only things i don,t like and will change are the bridge and the pickups.

There are a lot of differences between this and a regular Tokai. The lower bout is a different shape, the controls are in a different position and the headstock is different. These were apparently a short run USA model.

Did you take pics of those "fakes"? Oze and i have over 300 pictures of the Canadian fakes and they were made in Korea, not China. There are also newer fakes coming out of China but they are different to the Canadian ones.

This could be the same guitar that has shown up here a couple of times lately, 6 digit serial could be a cheaper Chinese model of a Canadian Fake. We really need some pics to identify it properly, is it on ebay?
