This is not one of the 24 worldwide made SG Juniors.

No photo of the front of the headstock? Serial number beginning with
CH(ina)? I'd pass on it.

Hi Guys

Tokai UK have just got some Les Paul and SG Juniors into stock. Made in China and all officially done.

Not sure about 1 piece mahogany - generally the guys have been using agathis which is relatively lightweight. The neck is not set through - but rather set in - traditional style.

Chinese Tokai serial numbers begin with FC.

Tokai UK are using a different factory of late and the serial numbers we've seen have CH at the start. Made in China is also being stamped/painted onto the guitar rather than removable labels so it's harder for peeps to sell as something else. The photo of the back of the headstock handily cuts off above that bit.
