FS - Tokai SG185

Hi there anyone looking for a mint condition SG185 ?

....but wouldnt it have some serial number on it ?

the seller seems to be a regular seller of instruments based on looking at feedback so would expect him to know more about the guitar ?

how can we be sure its a 90's MIJ ?

FWIW,

my 2005 LS150 is by far the best LP I've played so far. Much as I'd like a reborn or something the recent Tokais are superb instruments - I wouldn't think twice about buying a MIJ Tokai.

Thanks for all the thoughts guys. I found a great guitar tech via the net - and he turned out to be only 1.5miles from where I live. Took the SG in - he loved it and we shared our view that Jap Tokais were fantastic instruments. He was very impressed with the build quality vs other well known SG pro...

cheers Guys, I guess so , I suppose on a 2008 NIB guitar I shouldnt expect it to get shipped from EU mainland and arrive set up totally to my liking. a little bit of a pity to have to spend the extra wonga to get the action down on a "High-end" Tokai model. Its really noticeably harder to play than ...

Adjusting Action in my SG175

Hi All, after a couple of days playing I have definitely decided that the action is too high on my new Sg175 the way it is currently set up. Can anyone give me a step by step guide to adjusting the action and neck relief. I'm pretty good with tools etc - just never adjusted a neck before ! whats a g...

NGD - SG175 Faded Cherry !

Well, well, well..... the Godin LGXT sold recently ( he got a bargain ) and the 2008 SG175 FC has arrived today ! Still BNIB. Fantastic. One minor issue - 2 of the vol and tone controls both fell off out of the box as they arent tight enough on the pot shafts - but easily remedied. Pity though from ...

That really is a beauty - what styles do you play ? love my LS150 and cant wait for the SG185 - but really have soft spot for my McCarty 1994 Goldtop as it arrived the day before my son Leo was born - so its a keeper. must take pics ( err, this is a Tokai forum - sorry Moderators ) ... Rgds Pete
