Seeking for Loverock on Ebay, I've found a seller (wich I believe is some mysterious-dark side guitar seller UK/German union) so called 'guitar-friends' that sells some sort of copy from Tokai's copy from Gibson(!), pretending they have been made in the Tokai korean Fabrik.
After 3 e-mail with still NO answer, I become suspicious... Does anyone around has ever trade with those (speechless-)guitar friends? Or does anyone knows more 'bout those mysterious dark side guitars they sell?

Who's hidden behind "Guitar-Friends"?
Am I in danger looking for informations 'bout them?
Are they Evil?
Do they secretly work for Gib*on to discredit Tokai?
Am I completely paranoiac?

the hell made fake tokai love rock here:

Looks like a fairly harmless Korean Love Rock to me.
But be careful, I hear that they're killers when you plug 'em in.

Hi
Just thought I'd give my two pennurth on this matter.The guy who I bought my Love Rock from told me that he had a deal on ebay with someone answering this description. The story goes that he bought a guitar off this guy, and when it arrived the neck was broken. After he repeatedly complained, the guy said that it must have been damaged in transit (curiously the packing was intact!). Then he sent him a virus which put his pc out of action for a while. I've been tempted to buy from him a few times, but after this guyt told me this, i won't touch it!

I GOT IT!!!!
well I've finally found what are those 'made in tokai fabrik'guitars . At least what I think they are... After crossing over harmony central reviews and other bids on ebay (looking for pics of this headstock, the description and the source etc...) I bet (still doubting) they sell SX copies (wich are made in China). Now still don't know how they sound. And obviously still No answer from our guitar-friends...

Your d?vou? servant!
