This seems to be the only tokai dealer in the us on eBay. Am i safe to purchase here. Any experience before that they are legitimate tokais? looks like a great deal

Depends on what you are searching for.This is not a japanese made tokai but the cheaper chinese version.Made for the UK market as you can see from the headstock.Must be a UES-60.Price is ok and if this is what you are behind go for it.Name of the seller is awesome too

Chinese fakes are easier to pass as Tokai MIC

Wrote the seller to say he's charging a bit too much and he replies -

"The PRICE is VERY COST EFFECTIVE... Are you on CRACK...??? Or you just plain don't know what you are talking about... These were custom-made for my store from Tokai. Six made, one left... They go for $1800 $2500 in Japan even if you can find one..."

"....First and foremost, I've been selling Tokais for over 40 years. I know them in and out. You will not, I say will not find a FB VII this color and with this tailpiece custom made. Tokai China is Tokai Japan... Quality controlled by Japan... Please call for further instructions. 619-988-9777 Big Hern"

Don't hold your breath you idiot. I have better things to do. "Selling Tokais for 40 years..."
