The last batch were solid spruce top guitars made in Korea.

Just found out the other day that the J200s are going to be on the back burner for the time being as the factory Tokai used is now making guitars for Gibson - presuming Epihone.

So - if you can still find one, i'd snatch it! It's probably going to be a bit of a wait until we see them again.

thanks sir!
I've found one!
But why this model(recent prduction) don't have any LABEL inside the sound hole, have a different headstock, and have 1 piece top(instead of two piece)???

I have doubt to buy this!
it is Brand New, 375?

what you say about

At under ?400 I'd assume it's Korean unless it specifically has "Made In Japan" on it somewhere.

All the tokai j-200 were Korean if I remember well.

that makes it more simple.

Edit:

If it has "Made In Japan" on it it's a fake.
