Re: 1982 Tokai Springy Sound ST80

The E series pickups that came with ST80's are excellent, lower output vintage p'ups. You may prefer a more modern higher output wind.
Yes, play it for awhile... put new strings on it, get a proper set up with intonation, string and pickup height, etc. You might be surprised.

Re: best guitar

I still have my 1960's Harmony ukulele that my dad give me as a little boy ... my first stringed instrument. Like yours, the sentimental value is priceless because you will always think of your father and uncle when you play them. My dad has been gone for about 20 years but every time I look at that...

Re: 1982 Tokai Springy Sound ST80

I have two ST80's..... both have the vintage style tuners with the hole in the top to tuck your strings. Black saddles? "Different than original Fender parts"? Not sure what you mean by that.... shouldn't be any Fender parts on it at all. To my knowledge, all vintage Springy's prior to 83/84 have To...

Re: Tune of the day

No one does a song like Joe Walsh. This one will put a smile on your face.... the video screen behind him is priceless.

Re: Tokai Love Rock with tele style body?

I did have one and loved it. Only sold it to help finance a vintage Gibson ES-330

It was every bit my LS150 from that same year (2008) minus the nitro finish. The Anniversary also had a nice wide neck. Really a cool one off type of guitar .... great player too.

Re: Tokai Love Rock with tele style body?

It was the Anniversary model (GA130) from 2007/2008 - available at that time from Tokai Germany (Gottfried)

Re: where are you from?

I live in Austin, TX but grew up in Houston. Have seen SRV numerous times and Eric Johnson more times than I can count - he's worth seeing anytime especially if he's still doing the Ah Via Musicom shows with the original band. Got to meet Shohei Adachi (CEO of Tokai) numerous times at NAMM in the 9...
