i think the worst attitude of those fishy guys is that they never tell you the model designation even if they know. they just want to let you think that their guitars are comparable in terms of value to $3k and upward guitars.
actually they sell the cheaper models with 2 or 3p backs, 14deg headstock angle, veneer tops, no fret edge binding and so on. sometimes they try to sell koreans modified to japanese looking ones just by swapping trc and cc plates.
just take a trip to tokio, walk around the corner and you'll be offered tons of used tokais LS-xx between 200 and 350$

If you guys here know of any Japanese dealers that would sell Tokais to US customers, let me know! I'd like to get as many Tokais as I could at $300! I just bought an LS75Q VF, that I sold on EBay for $800. I just wanted to see the quality of the guitars (why I purchased it) and I was impressed. I didn't really make anything off of the guitar, since shipping, Paypal and Ebay took their turns reamming me!
If anybody knows where I could find them cheaper, share the knowledge, I'd like to buy a few more to keep and possibly sell in the US!
