Hi guys! Greetings from a new Tokai fan (AST-62 & LS-50 so far)!

From looking at previous posts and the catalogs, it seems that the "Cat's Eye" guitars are made in Japan. But the vintage copies sold on eBay are Korean.

Wood's post brings up something I've been wondering about, though. Does anyone here have one of the Korean acoustics? How would you grade the quality? I've had some Korean acoustics that were unspectacular (being diplomatic). But the eBay Tokai acoustics are so pretty and cheap! I can't resist their Siren song much longer. How do they compare to similarly priced solid top Japanese guitars (i.e., used Takamine, Yairi, etc.)

Thanks,

Joe
