hi all am new to the site and new to Tokai also... But last week took the plunge and bought one off eBay... And I now know why my mate said you cannot go wrong with one!

I'm trying to identify it but not having much luck, hoping you guys might be able to share some expertise.

The serial number reads FC0600961.

Not quite sure how to upload pics but this is the eBay listing .. I paid ?127 for it which seems like a decent price (I hope!)

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Tokai-Les-Paul-Custom-/251827498538?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2047675.l2557&nma=true&si=vD4tgfg7e3VIaEISs7SiPDPKqww%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc

He also had it on gumtree, asking price was 350.

Would love to know more about it.. Either way I'm loving playing it!

Thanks in advance for any help.

Richard

I'm not an expert when it comes to made in China models prior to 2009, but I'll try.

It looks like a 2006 made in China (maybe Korea) UK LC50 Custom model.
The bridge has been changed, it's not original.

?127 is a crazy good price...350 was the correct price.

Hi Diamond. thanks very much.. appreciate the input.

I thought it was a bit of a bargain.. guess I got lucky because the auction ended at 7pm on Valentines Day! Too many people otherwise engaged!

It's a lovely guitar, am really happy with it.

cheers
