For customers residing in Japan
Cats Eyes guitars were manufactured by Tokai Gakki.
Because of its high quality, this brand is very popular among Japanese vintage enthusiasts even today.
This guitar is believed to be made in 1977 from the serial number, but it is in relatively clean condition considering its age, with no noticeable major damage.
The body back has some paint bleaching, and a crack can be seen at the heel of the neck.
The truss rod is close to being tightened and there is not much room for adjustment.
The frets have been rubbed and the saddle has been adjusted to match the current condition after we received the instrument, so it plays well.

There are some signs of use, such as whitish on the body back and overall age-related wear.
