Can someone provide me some more information about a Tokai Reborn Old with serial no. 1023290? The seller says it's a 2011 one, bought at Musik Produktiv in Germany. It costed €1100 new, he wants to sell it for €950. I'm not gonna pay that kind of money off course, but if I'll get it down to €750 I think I'll buy it.

Which year, quality, and I guess made in Japan?

Nevermind, I already bought it. Great guitar. It has the rounded headstock model, not the 'open book' one. It's a limited run of Reborn Old's for the German market. For as far as I can see this one has the vintage 60's specs, like ABR1 bridge mounted directly in the body of the guitar and a long neck tennon. It has a plain two piece maple top in tobacco sunburst. It looks fantastic.

The one I bought is just like new. It isn't even broken in, there was no fret wear at all. The owner bought it in 2011 (the guitar is from 2010). He has never played in a band and almost never played it, because he also was the proud owner of a USA PRS Custom 24.

It has the slim neck profile and it plays and sound great, even acoustically and without being broken in already...

Really happy with this purchase! I'm gonna put some miles on it, so it will loosen up and even get better I guess. Love it.

Some pictures will help?

You might ask Gottfried at Faber Guitar as he imports these guitars:
