|Here is link to a web site with some interesting Tokai catalogs for their acoustic series as well as other Japanese manufacturers:
I count 4 different Tokai catalogs from 1975, 1979, 1980 and 1981. The one from 1979 seems to clear up the misunderstanding about model numbers = list price x 1,000 in Yen, because they seem to have used an additional zero on their early acoustic guitars, i.e. a CE-2500 had a list price of 2,500 x 100 (not 1,000) = 250,000 Yen.
