Purdy guitars, thanks for sharing. I'd seen rockin's before but never knew that other dealers had ordered 'Reborn Old' custom runs either. Rockin introduced fret nibs in their latest run of Reborn standards, so Tokai must be doing that again now on request.Agree with the other responses about the script, logo, serial number and " Made in Japan" black ink stamp. Personally, I've never seen that headstock shape, but everything else looks straight.
FWIW, I have two modern Tokais with a "Reborn Old" script on a traditional open book shape headstock, one from Rockin' the other from Guitar Planet. Bother were built to fairly high end standards:
2015 Rockin' Reborn Old Standard - solid maple top, 1 piece back and lacquer finish.
2010 Guitar Planet LP Special - 1 piece mahogany body and lacquer finish. The electronics were pretty basic, so I upgraded to RS Guitarworks electronics set and a pair of Thorn Staple pickups. Now it kicks all kind of rear.
