Hey everybody.

Iím new to this forum and Iím here because I have found a tokai love rock that Iíd like some help with before purchasing!

https://ibb.co/eYt16n

It has an 0101xxx serial number which Iím guessing is either 1981 or 2001?
(also seems to be in ink).
It has the two screws for the truss rod cover.
It has a Bigsby installed and non original tuners.
Could this be a MIJ Tokai? and what do you think it is worth (Australian $$)?

Thanks for your help

Great Forum by the way. I think that I've figured out that it could be a 1980 model MIJ just made in an alternate factory from looking around but please comment if you know any better.

How the serial number is 'embedded' on/in (stamped/'written' inked) the headstock.
