8) if you see tokai guitars named "NEO-SELECT" then they are made by tokai but produced by this great tokai store in nagoya. the neo-select guitars are much better quality than the regular tokai.
QUALITY THAN QUANTITY!

I was lucky to talk with such a fantastic luthier and person. It happened he made the first LS320 model I have documented and in my possession since some time ago at this time. He told me some details about the guitar (hand made), a really sweet guitar!

After the information sent by the maker it is highly collectable!

By figured top series do you mean Mr. Kunishi was also in charge of the special order LS150F models of 2004 on ?

8) yes. he was an ex-tokai engineer back in the 80s and so he still has a very close relationship with tokai today. he is the guitar specialist so tokai often asks him about the new models. LS320 & LS150F were his idea.

Well I have to give a big thanks to Mr. Kunishi then because I have a 2005 LS150F. Superb idea and i consider myself very lucky to own one.
