Tokai Korean es150 date of manufacture and specs

Post by mcdeleven » Fri Dec 13, 2019 10:26 am

Hello,

I’m going to sell my Tokai es150. Looking to find the date of manufacture and any specs of the guitar.
On the back of the headstock under “Made in Korea” is “ES1504009”.

It is a beautiful guitar that plays and sounds great. I’ll try and add pictures,

Thank You!

Thats very interesting. I've never seen a Korean made Tokai with a serial number.

That one has a UK export headstock by the look of it though, i'm more up on the MIJ stuff.

No F-Hole label ??

Sorry i couldn't be more help

Thanks brokentoes,

I haven’t played the MIJ version but this one is really nice. Just spent a couple of hours playing her and decided to keep her. It would be great to know information about the guitar.

This other guitar I recently bought is somewhat of a mystery too. It is a Fusion Blues FS200(?). Gorgeous maple top plays and sounds great. Neck seems a little more shallow than my Tokai.

Any info on my Fusion Blues guitar would be appreciated

Thanks

Never heard of the Fusion Blues Guitars but here's a catalog with your guitar and its specs in it.

Brokentoes,

Thanks again! The last page of the Fusion Blues catalog has a specification sheet of their guitars.

The model I have is the FB200.

As far as my Korean Tokai I somehow deleted the picture of the headstock showing the serial #. I’m still anxious to find any history about the guitar.

Thanks
