Is it really Tokai ?

Post by dronttula » Sun Sep 09, 2018 5:49 am

Hello.

I've been trying to buy new Tokai and googled some offer in Japan, model Tokai LS124F - Shop link

It looks very suspicious, because I can't find model LS124 in any Tokai catalogues. Also it have logo 'Dear rock' instead of 'Love rock'.
Seller says this is because model is for domestic sales only.

Also serial number 1839133 looks strange, if 18 is plausible - 2018 year, but what means other numbers ?
If digits '39' is the week number, then it's impossible, week 39 starts at September, 24. Maybe guitar from the future ?

It looks the part of being a genuine Tokai apart from the Dear Rock but if you put an order in as a dealer you can pick whatever you want under the Tokai on the headstock. That's why there are new "Reborn Old" models.
