Hi Guys,

Would like to hear what you think of this guitar. It reads on the back of the headstock "Made in Korea". But having read about poorly built fakes, it's nice to be sure....or at least "surererrrr..."
Please have a look at the images, I would appriciated your thoughts.

Images - see here >> http://www.brandbooster.dk/images/Tokai/Photos.html

Cheers,
Patrick

Looks genuine to me. The headstock logo script on the fakes is more 'joined up', most notably the 'o' and the 'a'.

Cheeers,

Dated by lack of serial number?
Only model they made in that time period?
Were the open pickups standard or retro fitted, they could both be
Gibson pups.

Again, thanks for all the feedback.
Much appriciated.

The seller informed me that the bridge pickup was changed to a Gibson.

2003-2005 ALC-53, thanks. Good to know.

Pretty chuffed about this one, literally not a scratch one it. Only a small chip as a result of changing the strap "bolts" (?) by previous owner. Bad luck. Hardly noticable.

Have a good one,
Patrick
