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".


Waht mean: Limbo-kai ?


Difficult when English isn't a first language! Limbo is a state where something is neither in one place or another.

"Limbo-kai" is Ozeshin's way of saying it's not really a Tokai but very nearly is! It's an un-official Tokai, made at the same factory but not under license from Tokai.

John, do you have any support for "made at the same factory"? I'm still trying to piece together exactly what AMP was doing 2004 - 2005 before they were terminated by Tokai.

Sorry, just repeating what was already said, I'm no expert, just trying to clear up Ozeshin's English

Not made in the same factory guys, too many things are different , and the company that commissioned these guitars have "apparently" done this before
"THIS GUITAR IS A FAKE...
As i said in another thread, these guitars are supposed to be reasonably made and are not to bad, found a review for these on another site..

So that REALLY sux for the poor bastards that have bought them.
They own something "resembling" a Tokai but the only connection to Tokai is the fact that the thieving ex-distributor used to legitimately import Tokai...but then got sneaky and greedy
That's actually WORSE than the Chinese knock off's coz AMP KNEW what they were doing was at best wrong and at worse criminal
