The pics aren't detailed enough to give you a good opinion... but i'd say the body for sure is not Tokai of the springy sound period for sure. Good chance even the neck isn't Tokai. Post more pics when you get them.

Hi guys,

This IS NOT a Tokai SpringySound - NUNCA!

No Springy EVER had the truss rod adjuster at the nut.
No Springy EVER had a See Through Blue Maple capped body.

The logo is a reproduction - not an original

This is a FAKE, pure and simple and I advise you NOT to buy it.
