Not even a vintage dealer in Denmark Street would be mad enough to ask that much - case in point: one of them recently thought they had a Tokai 58 V and they advertised it at (I think) ?799. Its currently readvertised as an unbadged Epiphone:-?
Since the new Tokais came out the prices of the old ones have gone through the roof. It scary to think that there are people out there with such a tenuous grip on reality ....

I agree with Luis that this site has got something to do with the price rise. I reckon Ned must have a basement full of NOS Tokais and he's just waiting for the right time to announce a sale
But seriously, Tokai's profile has been raised a lot recently and its simply a case of supply and demand. Ironic given that back in the 80s people bought Tokais because they weren't bothered about the name on the headstock...

.... Love it Barry.

If I had that many Tokais I could probably flog the lot and buy a 59' blonde 335 (a far better investment). In fact, James has cleared me out of Tokais except for my black Tele and the 335.

The blokes a chancer. ?1500 for that V is bollocks. You can grab the early Ibanez Korina style V's for around ?600 - ?700 which are usually just as nice and just as collectable.

Curses, Barry has seen through my evil scheme to hold the Tokai loving world to ransom for.......1500 pounds! (little finger in mouth pose). Now what am I going to do with all these Tokais?.....cluttering up my volcanic island lair.....

Wow...only AUS$4,500.00....a bargain. They were AUS$858.00 new.

The Ibanez however does not posess a mahogany body or neck, only ash and maple and so i'm afraid it falls short.......

Still, if this guy sells it for that, he'll be laughing til he pisses his pants. There may be fools silly enough to think that the high price makes it a better guitar than a Gibsooon re-issue.

Now James, about that Volcanic island lair full of Tokais.....

True. The Ibanez is not an exact copy but it's still a good copy.

And they sing man.....they sing.

Just been on the Loot site and theres another Tokai 58 V ad, this time at ?600. Don't know if its the same one (the map location is different and can't see the contact details yet), but its a big coincidence if it aint.
