In the early 1970’s Tokai made parts for Martin and shortly thereafter they introduced the “Cat’s Eyes” line of guitars which were tributes to these great American guitars. This one sounds great, and plays great too! It features a solid spruce top and laminated back and sides. The tuners have been replaced with copies of the originals without drilling any new holes. There are a couple minor dings but nothing serious. Comes in an original Cat’s Eyes case that according to the factory badge is also a copy of a Martin case, lol. Case is solid but has some dirt on the exterior, stickers and peeling tolex.

Scale Length: 645mm
Nut Width: 43mm
Action at 12F (1st): 1.5mm
Action at 12F (6th): 2.5mm
Overall Condition: 8.5/10
