I've emailed Tokai about a Goldstar without a serial number.... I sent them pictures of the cavities, neck pocket etc and they got back to me a few days later telling me it was authentic and from what years it could be from. Very helpful.
Your reborn old didn't necessarily come from Hibiki. Any dealer can order a batch of guitars to their liking and get the Reborn Old moniker added to the headstock. I've seen examples from Germany, S.Africa and Japanese dealers.
It's a '15. It looks most like the current HLS-240SF, and I just wanted to know what model whatever shop ordered the small batch started with, basically. What model they decided to tweak. Will mail pics to both, thanks guys
Well, Itchyscratchy says it is very likely an HLS-240SF, but it isn't here yet and they said "very likely", which means very little. To you guys who sent picture to Tokai, do you have an email address you could share? I only see the form on Tokai's website. (I was able to send pics to Hibiki but have not heard back yet) Thanks
