Lol. Not for me, but interesting. I hadn’t seen that finish on a Tokai. Kind of looks like a sampler of stains for trade shows or something.

Each individual color is cool, but all of them on one guitar? And what is with the black back? Why hide the wood?

Curious piece.

Looks like serial number 1942464. Made in Japan.

Nice fretboard. Wonder what model this is? Assuming veneer top and multi piece body.

If it is a 2019, then that must have been the year for rainbows?

Here's a 2019 Gibson LP Standard for three times the price with a chambered body.

I have seen PRS rainbow guitars, but these seem a little more organic. Kind of like it but not sure I would like seeing it every day....

Now the lyric "I'm the man on the Silver Mountai-hann" is stuck in my head. :lol:
