SEEMS TO BE QUITE A MYSTERY HERE.... Maybe someone else will know

tokai - 6 digit serial - 051186 ???

Double ring tuners - 81??? or replicas of a vintage tuner?


No markings of japan or korea??? ANYWHERE!!!!

Appears to be Maple top, 500K pots, gold hardware (incl. b-2 bridge)

LC - 60??? is my guess and what year is beyond me... Here are some pics - I hope this will provide the clues needed...

CHEERS

Yeah that looks to be a Chinese made model. 3 screw truss cover, metric bridge, and the center nipple between the open book on the headstock are dead giveaways generally. Not to mention the HUGE Tokai font on the headstock

it looks like the top is 5/8" thick - maple top??? neck is good - minor buzz around 14th fret bottom string...

is this worth while to throw some new pick ups into it.??? I paid 300 for it used

what else would be worth while upgrading on it??

or just pawn it off??? - sounds ok as is but its not X factor as I had hoped

Only you can decide if it is good enough for you and how well it plays man.

You are probably wasting your time looking for the "X" factor in a Chinese guitar,buy a Japanese Tokai and experience the "real" thing...

You were ripped off, it's a fake.

By the way, you've posted the same thread in two different sections.
