Re: Tokai-UK lately?

At one point about 15 years ago they were very popular and it was easy to find the Japanese models in many UK stores. After a few years they went out of fashion and for a long time you only ever saw the Chinese models. I hope they're coming back.

Re: The 2020 Tokai LS-320

Where can I get those pickup rings? Mine are the salmon pink type and I've never found a cream replacement that 1. fits and 2. is not cheap garbage.

Re: Tokai FA235 VS v FA245 VS

To clarify, I would add that because of the way model numbers are tied to pricing they could easily be the exact same guitar just made in different years.

Re: Tokai LS 136 vs LS 192 non-Premium vs Premium - what are the main differences?

I guess it's because the F next to model number which stands for Flamed maple top, should not drive the price difference What is this Long Tennon about? I guess none of those models have deep neck joint. What difference does the long tennon make? How is urethane better than its poly- version? They ...

Re: 94 Tokai Ls55 possible value?

Link not working for me.

Even without seeing pictures, that price is way above market value.

Re: Guide me on high LS models like LS-200

(1) the tail piece is installed slightly off center line, just slightly toward the bass side. This is patterned after a (supposed & claimed) well known burst with the same uncorrected tail piece placement installation. Canadian luthier Scott Wilkinson aka ExNihilo has produced replicas that include...

Re: Guide me on high LS models like LS-200

And/or could the same be said about, say, the LS-200? It depends on the year. LS-320 was designed to have everything a '59 gibson had, as far as possible - Nitro lacquer, rare woods, high end pickups, high-end electronics, fret-edge binding. The LS-200's which were on the market when the LS320 came...

Re: Anyone seen a stamped "Made in Japan" before ?.

Is the truss rod cover a replacement too? What does the front of the headstock look like? From what I can see everything on it looks legit, except that stamp. Bridge, tailpiece placement, cavities, pickups, even the stamped serial number. Mine had a sticker in '01 and it was shortly after they moved...

Re: Thoughts on 1990 Tokai LC?

I'm more than a little surprised about the comments re: neck thickness. I took the opportunity to look back over some old forum posts and couldn't find anything definitive, although a number of them seemed to suggest there was some variation between different years/models. My own experience was that...
