He also has a standalone web store, it's where i got my Tokai from
www.richtonemusic.co.uk

I'll let the members from the States give you advice on buying. You may be able to source one from Japan cheaper but I don't know.

It will be a medium tenon on the neck. It'll be a very thin quilt maple veneer. The manufacturing date is identified by the serial number. If it's starts with 08 then it's manufacture date is 2008 for example. The price will be uplifted each year by inflation and depending where you are, possibly th...

It's definitely not 15 years old and it's certainly not Japanese, it'll either be Korean or Chinese. See this recent thread for explanations why: http://www.tokaiforum.com/viewtopic.php?t=14887 The lack of serial and 'Made In Japan' stamp are other reasons. I can see the truss rod cover has been cha...

I'm sure the method for cleaning heavily tarnished nickel is soaking in a solution of one part ammonia, three parts water

This is just my opinion but if I wanted an inch perfect replica of a Gibson I would buy a guitar with Gibson on the headstock. It makes no sense to me to be so anal about the smallest of shape differences when things like the headstock decal are completely different. Consider other LP copies like Ep...

Looking at the historical rates it would have equated to around ?300, which isn't over the odds so you haven't spent more than you should.

The Korean models have Nashville bridges too IIRC

It looks like someone has painted over the existing finish in gold, I can see some flame coming through. I assume the photo isn't displaying the true colour very well? Looks to me like a Korean Love Rock with the truss rod cover changed, if there were originally 3 screws for the truss rod cover then...

I think you should just be happy they sound good, aside from resale value the Dry Z is just a name. We're guitar players (well I try!) not antique dealers.

Just my friendly two pence worth.
