Hi togps, could you please elaborate on that a bit? I'm trying to sort out the "Zemaitis saga" at the moment (and going slightly mad, too) before listing some related sites in the ODP, and so far I've only found the official information that the GZ series (not the custom shop guitars) by the new Zemaitis company are made by Greco. How come that Tokai Gakki should build these in reality? Is there any other connection between Tokai and Greco, perhaps for other models as well?

Here's the Zemaitis company site:

By the way, one of the Zemaitis "gurus" has several sites on which he published the recent deal between Gary Moore and Phil Winfield about his "Greeny" Les Paul (said to have costed over half a million dollars) with some pictures:

The president of Tokai Gakki would not like that further internals of this business relationship are published publicly.
I respect that.
With the request for understanding, too.

As far as I know - No!

How long has that been the case?

I guess that explains the Z-Talbo I just saw .... a Talbo with "Zemaitis" touches!

I'd like to get a 22-fret Zemantis reissue like Keith Nelson from Buckcherry plays on tour.

Ed Roman carries Zemantis. I can't find too many that do. Would also like to know more about the new ones. Looks like they are not cheap though...

Yes, Tokai make Mosrites and it's very normal as their old Hummingbirds electrics from last 60's are in fact Mosrites guitars.I know that since my tourat the factory.Mr. Adachi show me a California(If I recall well) Mosrite and he said it was the most difficult guitar to make because the work involved as these guitars are a lot of vacuum wood inside....and they make another V model for another brand we all know
