However, recently several of these guitars have been discovered with what appear to be early original features (eg double ring tuners & "Reborn" decal), and it now seems likely these are Japanese made Tokais dating from 1980-81.

Current Made In Korea (MIK) models have serial numbers that start with a letter (A, B, C, etc) but a date scheme has yet to be determined.

These inked numbers have been the subject of ongoing debate, however, it now appears they are mainly from 1980 & 1981.

For what I paid for it as long as it wasn't made in someones garage I didn't take a bath, hell even if it was the guitar sounds and plays fantastic. BTW I searched the serial number up and it came up as either a 64, 73, or 74. Ok the guitar in question was apparently sold to someone as a "60's refin" but it most likely isn't.

BTW I searched the serial number up and it came up as either a 64, 73, or 74. No it was sold to someone as a 60's refin and then found out it was an 80's model who then sold it to Mark's who then sold it to me as such (I appologize in advance if the person who bought it was a forum member). All I was told was is that Mark from Mark's Guitar Loft thought it was an 80's model I didn't know because the serial number says it is from either the 60's or 70's.
