Just goes to show you that something is only worth what someone will pay for it.

I allways wonder if it's people with too much money or not enough brain...

Yeah from time to time people get a in bidding frenzies over something they could probably buy for a lot less money - but it's eBay where you see stuff like this and conversely the DEALS OF THE CENTURY. Heck part of the whole bidding is a little like going to the casinos to gamble - there's the hope you'll score big !! We've all gotten really killer deals on something so you know how that aspect of eBay is. But the bidding frenzy over something you could walk into a store and buy for a lot less, that puzzles me.

These guys were bidding like the case had the original handwritten lyrics to SHE LOVES YOU in the casepocket...

Some people is getting mad! I'm getting very tired about how some people is asking in forums about his guitar and then putting on ebay for ridicoulous money.NOw,as Tokais and equal quelity guitars,people is gettin obscure brands just "because it's japanase" and some of these fake the guitars with a Tokai logo which I hate.Other are getting low end series of respetable brands like Greco which aren't regarded at least to me and expect to be fantastic guitars

Tokai makes (or at least supplies) some of the best cases on the market; if you've got a Les Paul-type guitar, you'd be hard pressed to find anything better. Don't know if I'd pay that much, but if I needed one, I'd be sorely tempted.

The cases are shown as a separate item in the back of the newer catalogues in the registry. Does anyone know if they can be purchased separately?

You can buy the tweed cases separately in the UK.

I haven't actually bought one but I spoke to somebody at Tokai UK last week and they said they had the tweed cases in stock which could be ordered through any Tokai dealer.

Try - Sales@richtonemusic.co.uk

I didn't say they would have them. Did they say they can't order them? Did you try calling tokai? Anyway look at this:

They probably are from the "U.K. Tokai Distributor", but are they Tokai cases? I strongly doubt it. A single neck support? - not interested. Check out the official Tokai ones in the back of the catalogues in the Registry. The LP180 for 18000 yen, whatever that comes to. It looks like they can be ordered separtely; I wonder what shipping form Japan would cost?

Mark my words - someday Tokai Gakki cases will be sought after!

Yeah, I have one of these cases myself. It came with an LS150. It doesn't say Tokai anywhere on the case and there is a tag with 'China' on the inside. It's quite a good case but not up to the quality you would expect from Tokai.

Not as much as Tokai underwears. I'm thinking about selling a few ones on ebay (limited run, as my laser printer runs out of ink). Prototypes, of course.

I think, on the contrary, the MIJ craze will calm down exept for the really collectable models (high end models from the best years) and a lot of people will wake up with a pain in the ass.
