Come on fellas. I mean I realize this is a Tokai forum and mostly comprised of fans that own Tokais, but some of those problems can't be blamed on the dealer, like the binding errors for example. I think the original poster has a legitimate concern about the QC of Tokai's low end offerings. In a yea...

Nice guitar you have there. That one I believe was made in the Tokai Gakki factory, so you basically have a Tokai there.

I don't know what every one elses verdict is but here's some problems I have with some of the things the seller has said.

Burny's went at least up to RLG-120s because I've seen them.

They were made at Fuji Gen Gakki well after 1980.

Other than that I don't know.

The Burnys made in the Fuji Gen Gakki plant in Japan had fret-edge binding, The moste expensive MIJ models have but many MIJ models have not. I wouldn't call my 90s RLC-75 one of their most expensive models and it has it. I've actually never seen a mij Burny that did not have it. You may be right t...

Tonetimes: Do you really think it could be Chinese? Wouldn't it have one of those palace/mushroom shaped trussrod covers then? The trussrod cover would be easy to replace. That trussrod cover is somewhat consistant with a late 80's/90's one but it's cut off at the nut to allow it to fit from what I...

The Burnys made in the Fuji Gen Gakki plant in Japan had fret-edge binding, which seems to be missing from your example. They were for a short time made in the Tokai Gakki plant, so that is a possibility, however I doubt that any Japanese manufacturer would make the mistakes you mentioned. My guess ...

I finally started having trouble with feedback with my VH1s in high gain, high volume situations. I love the pickups so much I was hesitatnt to pull them, but I decided to get some Burstbucker Pros. Since then though I think I'm just going to wax pot my VH1s. I just love them too much.

Well I brought it home with me and it's sweet! Had to clean the freboard which was dirty beyond belief, adjusted the trem and action and put on a new trem arm. Works great as a low cost shredder. The quality is great since it's a Fuji Gen Gakki product. I'm getting a new locking nut for it and might...

Edwards is ESP's vintage style guitar line. They are production line guitars while the Navigator line is their custom hand-made special guitars.

I see that you own one of these. How do you like it? Is it made in Japan?

E) all of the above.

Ishibashi can hook you up with most I believe. Here's a link to some Edwards. http://www.espguitars.co.jp/edwards/index.html

The Tokai Gakki plant is still in operation I believe and Fuji Gen Gakki is as well.

Fernandes RG style with Floyd Rose

I'm getting one of these. Seems like a lower end Ibanez RG but has a Fernandes Floyd Rose licensed tremelo on it. Does anyone know what the name of this guitar is?
