Yes, I did realise about the route only. I did check where the neck & tendon would meet if not 1 piece, as I have had several that are just a route. This is NOT just a route. it is 1 piece. Albiet nit as deep as original gibson for sure, but this might not even be completely Tokai built I suspect.

Reborn players & collectors please take note.....

Thanks for the responce. 1980 would concure with what seeler told me..No seriel # does make a fun mystery. Did your 1980 have non-acrylic fret marckers also..?

Purchased from a trusted to this day 100% seller from Japan. The guitar it self screams quality in playabilty & sonics. I coll...
