Ive been looking at upgrading and getting a gibson lp studio. However i just saw a tokai being sold in the classifieds that sounds like it could be a good deal its apparently made in korea in 2007 its a gold top comes with PAF-Vintage MK2x2 pickups and claims its made of mahogany however i got told that the als loverocks have alder bodies? but yeah either way i was gonna check the specs online however the owner doesnt know what model it is so i thought i might try here.

do you have a link to the advert?

generally speaking the japanese-made ones are better, but it depends on how much money you have to spend on it.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

I tried figuring out what model it was via the reference to price but couldnt find much on what models were available in 07 to roughly match it up too. Ive got an epi lp studio and looking to upgrade was initially looking at gibson studios however been told to look into copies such as the tokais and edwards and thats when i stumbled upon this.

*Edit nm someone beat me to it.

no worries, sorry you missed out. For future reference, there's some great info at the tokai registry on dating and identifying tokais ( http://www.tokairegistry.com/ ), and you can get some help at the forums too if that link doesn't help ( http://www.tokaiforum.com/ ).
