Saw Wishbone Ash a couple of years back at The Tiverley Theatre, Wimborne, Dorset UK. Totally agree great guitarists, brought back some memories. 8) Unfortunately, it's apparent, most guitarists don't know who Wishbone Ash is. :) But they know who the Allman Brothers and Thin Lizzy are, and of cour...

Another custom spec on all my made in Japan Tokais, I ask for bigger frets, SBB-215 jumbos. Current model is the LC136E. That guitar smokes, extremely high quality, like all Jap...

Tokai video demo in the studio! LC136E Custom and LS124

Hi guys We did a really nice video demo of the LC136E (Ebony fretboard) Custom and LSS124 'Reborn'. A few friends helped out, Dave on Hammond C3 and Larry on bass, my friend Peter playing guitars and bass. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XH1z4IFLrX4&fbclid=IwAR0NgUnGUbLAvWQfNHhnOJaZtyOHTi_2257jqg-3O...

Nice! What is the difference in tone? I must confess, it's been lying in my storeroom cupboard for a few months so I'd forgotten what it sounded like before the mod. :) It's just a great guitar, resonates like crazy, fat chunky neck, pretty much sounds like an LS model. Mine came stock with a Tonep...
