Tokai TTE-55 A2G

Tokai HES180 2013

Tokai LS-150 VF 2009
Current? They were made in Korea years ago (along with the infamous Canadian fakes). Don't think they're still made in Korea - but I might be wrong.

This first post of theirs is the warning sign, seems the site has been heavily targeted of late and needs a security update.

I just had to send him a little message:

I'm hoping you are not really informed on what you are selling - rather than knowingly misrepresenting it. First off, it's not made in Japan. The white body cavity covers indicate that (MIJ are always black) and the all black, three hole truss rod cover indicates MIK, MIC or a fake. MIJ are always two screws and two ply cover.

There's no model 2400. There is an LS240 but that is a recent mid 2000's model. Not even close to your 1990's statement. So you may want to pull that listing or update it accordingly. Not only is it a fake "re-logo'd" Gibson but it's even more of a fake MIJ Tokai.

I just wonder what it could be ?? It has Fret-Edge binding so that rules out even most of MIJ Tokai let alone the Koren or Chinese offerings just to begin the symphony of what's messed up with this guitar. Didn't some Chibson's start coming out with models that had FEB ?? It could be one of those with a hella spin.

Not sure if this is a super real to be honest. Serial starts with a 2 so it could be one. But 850 or 1000 or 1200 who knows ? I would not trust someone who is trying to tell people that dry82 and dry z are the same... asked him about it and of course no reaction
