This one looks totally a real Made In Japan Tokai LCxx. The bridegposts are directly attached to the body without metal pushings. Also note te square shaped routings in microphone cavity. https://www.dvdplaza.fi/forum/media/alb ... roita.350/

Travelling to Tokyo, Want to buy a Tokai, pre 1988 preferred

I'll be travelling to Tokyo 15-21 Feb 2015. I'd like to buy a second hand Tokai, I'm interested in models older than 1988. I want to test the guitar and possibly have a beer with the owner ;-)

Currently Tokai have only one neck thickness, one neck width, and one neck shape. Any differences you might measure or feel are random from the manufacturing process. You can't order a custom spec guitar with a wider, fatter or thicker neck. Neck specs. 22.8mm at 1st fret including fret height. 25....
