The only one I can remember seeing was also a Tokai. It was on YJ a couple/few weeks ago.

Yahoo Japan. It's an auction like ebay. It sold pretty low but I can't remember the exact amount it ended for. I think it was under 45000 yen though.

Holy shit thats so cheap, its like 340 euro.. I wonder what fretboard and inlays it had. If that wasnt ebony... come on silverburst with not a black fingerboard that must look like puke.

Alex Skolnick looks like Adam Jones after 1 year in Russia :D well, i dont count esp and ltd they make shit ton of guitars with various finishes nowadays so they probably have most of possible ones. Also i hate their flag inlays they are one of the ugliest inlays i've ever seen. Plus their version of les paul just doesnt do it for me, the horn is too pointy

I'm getting a lot of questions about that Tokai. I did not save the auction or any photos. It had that same split diamond that the one in the first post has so that should narrow down the year(s) it could have been. I do remember the serial number was visible so I thought it was original finish.

Does anyone know what year or years Tokai used that split diamond?
