Hello all,

these beautiful new Tokai guitars are for sale here in Finland at the moment, but I'm doubtful because I can't seem to find any information about these guitars elsewhere on the Internet.

According to the (quite reputable) store's website, they're handmade in Japan, they have a korina wood body, mahogany neck and rosewood fingerboard. Bridge pickup is Tokai TE-Vintage MK3 and the neck pickup is a Tokai P-90. Another Finnish site with the butterscotch one on sale states that only 30 have been made worldwide..? I don't live nearby so I can't go check them out in person but I will do that once I visit the city they're in.

Does anyone here know what's the deal with these guitars?

Yes, I've seen that site with the mahogany one, as well. There's a couple of videos of somewhat similar Tokais on Youtube:

But these Korina models are the ones I'm interested in. I find it peculiar that Finland of all places would be the only one to get these beauties..

Sound fine too. Maybe more will surface in time as distribution copes.
