In that thread there's a download link to the PDF file with the verdict (only 60KB):

Who wants to be the new U.S. distributor for MIJ Tokai Love Rocks?

There is some heavy reading in there.

At last, common sense seems to have prevailed.

Notch up one for the good guys, although I'm not sure there are "white hats" and "black hats" involved here like the old Hollywood westerns.

LOL! (taken from this thread http://thegearpage.net/board/showthread.php?s=&threadid=101273&perpage=15&pagenumber=4)
Would look good on those "proto" Love Rocks, too, wouldn't it?

This will be very interesting indeed... How about publishing a new 2005 catalog for a start with all "proto" models included? Maybe they even should call them "Smokey Bar" now? OK, I'll quit...

Most Gibson owners were very against this silly case by Gibson.You can go to many different forums and see how we ridiculed Gibson for this.



However,why people are cheering for PRS,whose guitars are way to expensive too,is a mystery.No one won in the end.

I don't really care for the PRS headstock shape. Maybe they should have ripped off the 'open book' instead of the LP body!

Still, it would be good if Tokai were officially represented in the USA...if only so our American buddies have to pay tax on them at last!

(Please ban the emiticon then maybe I wouldn't try and end all my points with a bad punchline.)
