So, it was a gold top but had flame under that? What happened to all the parts.
It certainly seems to be a ^&*( deal.
Totally biased towards Japanese made guitars.

Leaving aside the price..

In woodwork terms - can't help wondering what has actually gone on there: looks like somebody has (poorly) crafted a veneered top to a Les Paul/LoveRock type body, and attacked the pickup cavities with some kind of routing device.

Does that sound about right ?

Yep, correct, a badly done P90 conversion and poorly fitted veneers. Now re listed :wink:

when I saw that Tokai it reminded me of a Charlie Brown segment where one character told Charlie, "Charlie Brown, you are so F***ed & so far from home." :lol:
