This is a can of worms, no one really knows the full story as far as I can tell.

That's really not a bad price, I think I paid $450 back in '02 so if it's in really good shape it may be worth it. I think the TKM's are very few in number, you almost never see them so one day who knows?

This is the only other one of these that I have run across (other than mine which I've had since 2002). There is not much info available on this one that I can find, I think it was maybe one of the first Korean built (TKM either stands for Tokai Korea Model or Tokai Kalamazoo Model, I suspect the fo...

So instead of asking 'what's for dinner?' I should ask 'what's for love?' and hopefully avoid a slap !!!

Classic Sushi guy, just classic - I did find that Gibson made a Kalamazoo model with KM on it - could it be Tokai Kalamazoo model? Or am I losing it. Searching around I can't find any similar ones.
The Ric model is supposed to be an RG40-12 if that helps at all - now back to my breakfast of sushi !!

I wonder if anyone really knows, it seems there are Tokai's from all over (at least it seems that way to me, as a layman). For example - the 2 guitars I posted pics of earlier haven't been categorically labelled as 'Fakais' by the experts as yet - I suspect they are? Hence my rant at the beginning o...

Maybe I'll post some pictures of my 'fakai' and presumeably fake 12 string Ricky copy - both came from Canada about 5 or 6 years ago - both play excellently bye the way.

But this is my whole point - noone seems to know what is fake, what isn't fake, and it's not helped by Tokai themselves putting guitars out there with serial numbers/without serial numbers etc. At least Fender do that. My 'Fakai' has no serial numbers anywhere, no stickers, nothing, it just says TKM...
