I've never seen a Bart Simpson headstock on a Tokai. It looks like an Indian Encore copy of a Korean Hondo II and therefore is a great embodiment of plywood.

99 pence no reserve, we could buy it to ceremonially smash at the next convention.

Now thats an idea... like maybe start a collection of the most ridiculous examples of Fakais. I'm rather fascinated with the whole history of Fakais.
Typically in the past, the Japanese motto was "imitate and improve". Gibson and Fender have no one to blame but themselves for the MIJ devotees, as Tokai stopped to "copy" [them] long ago.
