That's not an original head stock. If you look at the front close up, you'll see the ghost imprint of a name. This looks like a modified Hagstrom headstock........it also has the Imperial tuners found on Hagstroms. With the black paint on the front, back and at the neck join, I'd bet money that this was a headstock replacement for one broken off.

$2100? Give me a break (pardon the pun but I couldn't help myself )

Yes, the stinger on the back is suspicious for a repair, but I look closely and the wood grain looks continuous.

If it is a new headstock grafted on, it was done without much evidence.

Actually, I believe this is a fairly serious seller. Just wonder why he doesn't ship to France....

anyway: broken necks is what you get when you put guitars in front of cars,...

I never want to see one again. He probably won't ship to to France because he doesn't want it ending up pride of place in Villagers collection

Maybe it's the same guitar?

It sure looks like a Tokai with the build features, but is it really a Tokai if it says Hagstrom on the headstock?

Hi Roger - didn't know he was banned. I just checked his ratings...

Anyway: he probably should be banned for selling this thingy as a Tokai.

Cheers! Rupert

Looks like the work of a skilled luthier with Altzheimer's disease.

He'll probably list the Hagstrom next with the Tokai headstock grafted on.
