OK, it's not a Tokai, but it's MIJ:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=160237486261&ssPageName=STRK:MEWA:IT&ih=006

Does anyone know if these are any good? I don't really need another acoustic, but I'm curious. Fender don't seem to have a good reputation for acoustics, though I have no idea why.

Ad says laminated top... keep looking. You want a solid top - many laminated side and back instruments are great buys - the 70s Alvarez Yairi's with Jacaranda are all over eBay. Comparing them to a solid Alvarez Yairi Jacaranda it's a close call...

Never buy an acoustic with a laminated top...

Good lucking hunting. If you can find say an Alvarez Yairi DY74c or a DY85 or DY90 you will be glad you got it.

PS Kind greetings to all you guys that haven't seen me post in forever...

Ahhh Togps,

That would be me... Now married and living with my bride of 10 months in Scenic Jackson New Jersey... That's me working out on the property we're renting... I've sold most of my guitars to fund my move here, and also am still looking for work...

Hope everyone is well...

Michael
