Best i can tell is he's hoping to sell some guitars for more than they'd be worth.

He doesn't have a problem truthfully declaring what they are. One is a MIC Tokai and the other is a bolt-on MIJ.

I think he's unaware of what 2nd hand goods are though. I got my 2nd hand special order 2005 LS150F with case for less than what he's selling his bolt on for and to me that's crazy. I mean c'mon.

Are you sure about the bolt-on? It has a three screw trc, seems like a korean model to me. And the ad did not say made in china for the other one at first.

Ha ha my mistake. You are right.

I didn't notice the 3 screw trussrod cover on the bolt-on model. I guess it isn't MIJ at all.

I know that guitars sell for more in Europe and i've seen prices rise here where i live in N. America as well.

I'm at a loss.
