Re: Is this a real Tokai?

8) yours are also from this tokai semi/custom order service but you get more options than the regular customers because you are a direct customer of the tokai CEO. LS540~320 are not the custom order guitars but the limited quantity guitars made by the requests by the customers.

what "A"ST & "N"LS really means by tokai?

お問い合わせの件でございますが AST等のAは70年代~80年代にかけてアメリカ向けにヘッド形状を変更したモデルを販売しておりまして、Aはアメリカの頭文字、Aになります、 その後ヘッド形状を変更して、日本国内及び他の地域でも販売しております。 またNLSはLSのヘッド形状を変更したモデルで、NはNEWの意味になります。 いずれにしましても社内で区別をつける為の品番ですので、それほど深い意味合いはございません。 東海楽器製造㈱ 営業部 8) i asked tokai-japan what is the exact meanings of "A"ST and "N"LS and they exp...

what "H"LS really means by tokai?

お問い合わせの件でございますが、HLSはヒビキさんからの特注オーダー仕様のモデルですので、 社内で通常モデルと区別する為、LSの前にHを付けております。 また、59ピックアップはヒビキさん企画のピックアップですので、弊社の製品ではございません。 東海楽器製造㈱ 営業部 8) i emailed tokai-japan and asked them about the HLS guitars. the HLS guitars were originally the special-ordered LS/LC/etc guitars by the HIBIKI company who is the...
