Seller said that the guitar is in original condition, he's the only owner & couldn't remember when he bought it; somewhere at 2004/05 etc.

Also said that the guitar were marketed as "Zakk Wylde" model, thought it could be ALC-series.

Ideas?

What country are you in?

Are there any better pictures available?

It looks Korean, which fits the date range. It's not a Zakk model - Tokai never made one. He's just stuck some EMG's in a bog standard ALS model.

Finland.

He told me that he bought it from a local music shop as a brand new with those EMG's already in it.

I'm getting the guitar tomorrow so I could post some more photos of it by then.

I found something from the guitar registry;

Tokai Model: LC-80 S EBONY EMG ZAKK WYLDE

Comments: Tokai Custom model made for finnish music store Musamaailma.

And that's the same store my guitar is bought from. Shame I can't view the picture of that registration.

EDIT: Here's the link: http://www.tokairegistry.com/tokai-registry/view_search_guitars.php?setting=1989

EDIT #2: It's not LC80, since its MiK Tokai

Okay I sent some e-mail to Musamaailma (finnish music store) and their CEO answered me.

I've been told that the guitar was especially made for Finland only, limited batch of 20 guitars.

The model is ALS-48M BB ZW.

So basically it's matte black ALS-48 with Zakk Wylde's EMG set.

EDIT: I couldn't find any information about this guitar

I think you've done very well already, well done!

You should be able to find specs etc. for the ALS48 in the catalogue section of the registry. I'm guessing the only difference will be the pickups/electronics. It would be good to get some detailed pics of the pickups and wiring cavity when you get it.

I doubt you'll find anything else about it online, your best source is the shop itself.

I was a bit busy yesterday so I just took some quick pictures; might remove the pickups on weekend to see underneath them.

Hi all.
I want to learn Guitars but I don't know what should I do. I'm working on web design and SEO and I do not know anything about the guitar. Where should I start?
