Hi guys !

I?m new here, so hi to everyone !

I have a problem with my Tokai guitar.

I bought this guitar approx two years ago as a second-hand. I thought is model ALS37, but my guitar have a set neck, mahagony body with maple top and I have dot inlays on rosewood fingerboard. So now I?m out of mind.

It?s possible to be some rarity or special model ? Or it?s LS60 model ? Or another ?

I have wrecked headstock, I try to reapir it, but I did it bad ... I want new finish, repair it...
Serial number is (I?m not sure to 100%): 209838

If someone could help me with my problem I will be very funny. Just write here or to my email: dejvodbta@atlas.sk

Thanks a lot guys!

Dejvo.

So I put photo here, I know...it?s not much good, but only I have now...

So no one could help me ? I?m worry about idetification of my Tokai, wich model could be ? ALS37, LS60, other ?

I read something on net, I just try to find more information, and I think is ALS 37, but primary for japan market or for canadaian market...

I?m confused...

Right, and to confirm this, those tune O matic and stop bar look really strange...

The case might cost more than the guitare.

The tune-o-matic and stopbar is new from Gotoh...I replace old.

My friend from UK think it?s LS60 made in Korea, which was expand to Canadian market, he sew some stock in e-shop.

I found some articles about 6 digits serial number of new (last 90?s) Tokai made in Korea.

Yep...it's a canadian Limbo-kai.
NOT a Tokai...but made in the same factory as the official MiK Tokai.
If you ever try to sell it you have to sell it as "MADE IN THE SAME KOREAN FACTORY AS TOKAI".

Ozeshin, do you have any support for that statement? Just curious. Other posts have said that AMP used a different contractor.

So now I really don?t know.

I know one thing, it?s made in Korea, serial no. 209838, and it?s made for Canadian market I see some photos on net of other guitar like mine...

Before wrecked of headstock on head was Tokai. And on rear side of headstock was Made in Korea.

So, if it?s Tokai it?s ok, if no, it?s ok too, cause guitar play excellent.
