Mis-information strikes again at the Tokai Registry forum..... :(

The guitar in question is a Korean made, Canadian market NALS-48 Tokai Love Rock flame top with tangerine burst finish. 2005 model.

The conspiracy stories about fakes get more ridiculous all the time here.... :evil:

Well said Mick, although I'm sure it will fall upon deaf ears.

Going back to the bullseye, first run arrived Feb of 2005 and thinking back I seem to remember it was only 12 guitars on the first run as it sold out instantly. Second run came in around April/May of 2005 and was either 24 or 36 guitars.

You're wrong.. It's the Dillion Gold Top. Take a closer look you'll see you are the one who is wrong here. Just a quick look and I can see that.... 1. The Dillion GT is a different shade of gold, its lighter in colour. 2. The Vol/tone controls on the Dillion are correct and not like the ones on tha...

It is clearly the Chinese made Dillion DXC-650F Gold Top that is sold in Canada. A genuine imitation copy of a copy. No its not. Its very different looking from the new Dillion GTs available. That appears to be an early 2000s Canadian/US market Tokai when they were still testing the lawsuit boundri...

That actually looks similar to one of those fake Gibsons from China with the heavy imprinted serial numbers and mis-aligned vol/tone knobs.

No serial # eh, its not a Canadian market Tokai then. Is it new or used? It sounds like it may be a MIK or new MIC model from overseas.

That is a Canadian market Tokai, NALS-48 and the finish is tangerine burst. That guitar is just over 2 years old. Our Tokais here in Canada had one screw, MIK Tokais available overseas had 3 and were made in a different factory then ours.

JSD - let me ask a question. I have the box here and it says Made in China. Model DH-502 BL. It says Tokai on the headstock. Are these Chinese built Tokais ...or are they Chinese built copies of a Tokai. I guess my question is ...did Tokai build a bunch of these in China at some point....and why do...
