Peter, I follow your logic and hope this stuff made it into the book!. Imagine how boring if all Tokais were the same and all 'wrong' - I guess we wouldnt be collecting them. It is the mystery that makes Tokai so interesting to research, a bit like searching the valley of the kings and finding a bit...

Meet the Jackson 5!

Thought I'd get a photo of all my RRs together. Middle one is Jackson professional RR 1 hand built, through neck. Solid. Got 3 projects on the go and the green dinky was a bargain.

Hi, tuners have been replaced. Tren Saddles correct. not sure about thescratch plate, is there a spare hole under it as this usually happens on an 8 to 11 conversion. however they have bben known to have non historically correct combos.
