I've got one of tokais pink-lined Lifton type cases and the fit is perfect, although one of the modern 3rd party hardcase makers would probably offer better protection.

It may be worth pointing him in the direction of this thread and reporting the listing to ebay as misleading. His terrible punctuation and all caps writing style say to me he probably won't listen to ...

It's on eBay the seller is adamant that it is a MIJ.



You see that sort of thing quite often. People are either out to make a dishonest profit or were fooled themselves when they bought it.

Post photos if you have any. But it sounds like you've answered your own question and you're right to be suspicious.

3 screw TRC means MIK/MIC.

But what if the owner is asking only for 30000yen, for which I could barely get a MIK one. Do you think it is worth the price tag?

That's entirely up to you. For me, I can see that this guitar has ...

Well, it's definitely MIJ, so that's good. The truss rod cover looks mid-90's to me but I could be wrong. It's obviously a flametop veneer over a maple cap, no fret edge binding and the surface chippi ...

PostForum: Tokai Guitars   Posted: Sun Aug 05, 2018 11:56 am   Subject: LC220S - is it nitro finished?

so I wonder how you know about the whole poly+nitro deal then?

I own an early '00s LS-200, which in the catalogue is listed as having "Finish = lacquer finish" while the next model ...

The 2016 catalogue lists the LC210S as having a lacquer finish, the same term as used on the top of the line LS340. I would say therefore that it has a pure nitro finish.

Any test that you could do ...

i've found on the internet that

Yes, they've used this method on several high end models over the years. They do a thin 'undercoat' of poly to bypass having to do the first few coats of nitro that ...

No worries, very legit!
Dimensions of the holes of the TRC are the same as Gibson and some people prefer the bell shaped one. (As did I )

Agreed, I've got a Gibson Historic style bell on mine.

It's legit, no problem there. Not sure what it's value would be in your market, maybe someone else can help.

Value would be pushed up because of the good condition and un-dimpled (i.e. more Gibson- ...

I find it very suspicious that you can't see the word "Tokai" on any of the pictures. Why isn't there a photo of the front of the headstock?
