Dan here from Reverb HQ. I just was alerted about this thread and wanted to chime into say that all of these offended fakes have been removed from the site.

OP - if you have not heard back from our support team confirming your refund, please feel free to PM me here so I can make sure that gets sorted out ASAP.

Thanks all.

Different seller, but methinks that's a fake Korean.
1. One screw truss rod cover
2. See the serial number/language on the back of the headstock? They're trying to emulate Fujigen's style there. Tokai doesn't do that.

Are Guitar West's Tokais fakes too? That seller is from California. Seemed like a stand-up guy. Excellent customer service.

I bought one in 2014 ... actually had two, because one had a ding in shipping that was returned, and they were both good players, low buzz-free action and sounded great. Crappy tuners though. And crooked dots on the fingerboard binding.

Nick in the States reviewed one ... exact same model/color I have:

All I can say is, I don't trust buying Tokai guitars off the net anymore. Too many fakes floating around. So I got a 90s Orville instead from a trusted seller.

At this point, I don't know if I actually OWN a real Tokai or not!

I didn't follow the first thread about this guitar and wasn't concentrating when I replied on Page 1 of this discussion.

I assumed this was a legit LC50, I didn't realize it was purchased from a North American dealer and now confirmed as a Fakai.

My comment on Page 1 is based on a real Tokai LC50.
Keep the legend alive, buy new Tokais!
