Re: tokai, positive or negative in your country?

Here in Canada it seems that Tokai is usually associated with Fakai's. There are real ones around too but no one has heard of them which makes me wonder why anyone here would fake an unknown brand ?? Most people here would rather pay $1600.00 for a Gibson Studio with a bad plek job and numerous QC i...

Re: what "TOKAI" means?

Thanks for the reply and for your knowledge. I have to say i have a certain fascination for MIJ guitars and for Tokai especially. A used 2000 TJ60 was my first MIJ Guitar. The rest is pure obsession lol.

Don't know if you noticed (or if it was mentioned above ^^^) but beginning is misspelled on them as begining ..... just a cool little factoid.
Haha i never noticed the spelling mistake. Good eye. Could be proof that we are already living in an alternate reality though, so there's that. lol

Re: [NGD] Zeus Custom Guitars ZST-60

These really look fantastic.

I really like their take on the old Squire Vista Supersonics.

Bacchus "Beginning of the New Tradition"

So i have a few Bacchus and i have to say i'm impressed. I'm starting to look at their Strat offereing because well, i'm a guitar addict lol. I'd like to hear from anyone who has experience with the stats that have the new tradition moniker on the headstock. Here's one i'm interested in but i don't want to throw a bid on it without knowing ^&*(. I know guitar hiro and a few others here really know their Bacchus.

Thanks

Guitar in question.

Re: Bought a 'goldstar sound ' wondering if it's a fake

I can tell you it's not a MIJ Goldstar.

It could be a newer Chinese made Tokai but i don't have enough knowledge about them to know for sure.

Hope that's some help

Re: EGF-1200 "Sunburst Lady"

It's obviously the veneer top. Hard to beat that maple on maple "double sound"

I have a veneer top Greco and it's one of my favourites.

Re: what "TOKAI" means?

So I know that Tokai had another factory where the "inkies" were made way back late '70's.... but how many factories did they have at the height ??

Re: Springy Sound under the hood Question

If the radius is vintage 7.25 then usually the Fender style headstock is used i thought. Modern radius gets modern headstock. I could be way off there though. Its just an assumption.
