I went into guitar center to pickup an order (only thd dealer in Central IL) and i saw a tokai hanging up for 600 bucks that looked really nice, but i would like to know before i go back and look at it is what the designation Love Rock TKM model means? Hopefully i won't have to go back and deal with the people at guitar center.......

TKM could mean Tokai Korea Made, but I've never heard that abbreviation before, so it's just a guess. US $600 would be a bit much for a MIK (Made in Korea ) though, as far as I know...

Interesting, so it's even written on the headstock (which has a severe crack on this one, obviously from falling from the guitar stand and breaking the pickup switch knob as well). From the neck picture I would say it's made of maple, and I also see Nashville style bridge and bushings, so it's definitely not a Japanese model, although looking good of course...
