List Price $2,500 Tokai Gakki of Japan as one would expect has really done it again with this limited edition Namm show entry and very high quality in every aspect, Nothing but Premium woods used in the construction of this amazing playing guitar. This IS NOT to be confused with the cheep Korean look alike they really don't look the same but close with goofy horns & pieced in woods of less than top notch quality cheep Philippine mahogany and nato I have see the Korean cheap knock off..I had one as a matter of fact a year or so ago taken in trade...it was a nice one see the pics of it, but that was nothing like this Japanes made TRS...WoW!!! thats AAAA Honduran Mahogany body & Honduran neck. Have a good look at that Real Premium super curly big leaf maple more like a maple 12 top, No Photo flame here!...its live in 3-d..Built to pretty much exact PRS specs...it has a beautiful High grade Rosewood fretboard too. Mother of pearl Tokai inlay headstock and aged position markers. This guitar is in top condition and is near mint! No breaks or repairs ever.
Just a few tiny droplet tiy artist brush tip lacquer touch ups & 1 edge og headstock tip upper right size its tiny and looks good now after nicely matching tip touch up. This was done to prevent any further chiping due to exposure and it also looks great again. JVG condition easily rated at a solid 9-9.5 excellent all original condition. You will not be disappointed with this fantastic player! When have you ever seen one of these? This guitar is truly Very rare hand built NAMM show Guitar from 2003 and is highly collectible because a limined number of these were ever made...you may see similar shape from Tokai but they changed them and the headstok and I believe the horns slightly changed to less copy PRS... This one is from before that and was built right for show at namm. The Japanese Crafted TRS Tokai Gakki Guitar.
Optionally available a Black PRS hard shell case plush lined & it fits like a glove.
