    Hey this came up locally but I'm not the most knowledgable of Japan tokai so if anyone could double check it for me that'd be great.

    Tokai Love Rock ULC95 guitar, black, Japanese made 2003

    Headstock and truss rod cover look right and so does the serial but if there's anything I'm missing it'd be nice to know.

    Not an expert, but I find it funny that the seller describes this as "Dinged":

    Looks more like a cracked top, or separated veneer, to me?

    Yeah it is a strange place to get dinged as they put it. Also the scuff on the poker chick and bridge pickup are unusual.

    Then again if it's legit and has bkp pickups in it, I can get it for £350. Don't know if it's too good a deal to pass up.

    Yeah definitely. Wonder if it's been dropped or something

    nice guitar, but it looks like its sustained damage from some kind of collision to the front, like it was banged into something pretty hard.
