I would avoid purchasing of those guitars. Until a Tokai official tells me they are legit.
There are no Tokai's with US parts. Even the highest models are all Japanese.
A Tokai that is not made in a Tokai factory is not a Tokai.

Most of selled Tokai's on ebay from Canada are Made in Korea.
Have a look on the price and you will see the difference.
