Hi Alec!
To me that?s a Tokai. That guitar got all the Tokai characteristic points, like the neck pickup cavity, the electronics (with modified caps), the headstock, ......................!

I?m pretty sure that?s an original one!

Have fun playing that guitar, cheers to Russia: "ACY"

Hi Alexey!

Looks real to me too. Might be old also, if the truss-rod cover is original. Enjoy it, good to hear it sounds good too!

Hi Alexej!

Looks real to me. I also believe it's a fairly high grade because of the metal-shielded wiring. It also looks fairly old (TRC cover, diamond headstock, ...). Guess you are lucky! 8)

Just out of curiosity: where do you get Tokais in Russia? A friend of mine if Moscow is looking for one.

Cheers! Rupert

Very nice, definitely original Tokai Loverock LC. How much you have to pay in Russia ?
