Does Tokai make ESP guitars? I know they (ESP) had a big battle with Gibson over James Hetfield's ESP Explorers. Also, I have seen a new Tokai model on EBay that is the spitting image of the ESP Eclipse model and very similar to a limited edition James Hetfield Black Les Paul - type ESP.

thanks, Peace

No.They are different companys.ESP is a bigger corporation than Tokai located in Naganoo and support several other brands besides ESP.Tokai only supports Tokai and Cat's Eye and is Hamamatsu located.The guitar you've seen is korean,not made by Tokai Japan plant.
