I have a J55 acoustic and I love it. Solid spruce top, nicely resonant with nice binding on the back. It has a very comfortable neck - narrow, not too deep with a soft V profile - darn close to an electric neck.

For the money, it's a great alternative to a Gibson J45.

Here is my only Tokai but not the last. :wink: I think it's Tokai AST50 or AST33, made in Korea.

The J200 looks absolutely gorgeous ! I have been looking around for one of them for a while to replace a John Lennon (Vintage Manufacturer) copy I have . Same Burst as the J200 but the J200 looks so much prettier with the gibson book headstock and binding.. Anyone selling one cheap ? :wink:
