Nice guitar !

Hi ! I never tried a greco strat, and I really never liked natural strats either, but at that price.... I?d buy it on a spot. If it turns out a good sounding player, colour should not mean a thing ! Hey.... Maybe that (lack of) colour will help us look away from our guitars, and look at the audience...

copy...

Hi !
Looks like a really good guitar for the price !

There is a Guy in Germany selling these "big headstock" vieners. He claims they are old gibson stock, but they are probably not, as there are so many avaliable.

Tokai prices...

Hi Loverocker ! Did you notice that the Greco FV were just relisted ? in the beginning of the week he asked $5000 :lol: But prices are going up for shure. This morning "Seikosuru" sold no less than three Silver stars. All between $305 -$345. Not that much at all, but if you check the earlier deals o...

re-topping...

Well, to me re-topping sounds like making cakes... :D Retopping a Les Paul would mean more work than building from scratch. And why bother to drill holes for a tailpiece in that all new maple top when you want a Bigsby... ? Not very well planned.... Headstock is not shown, but when doing all this wo...

wonderful world eh ?

Well, I?ve seen his offers, and to me it is just a total joke. Tokai is a great brand because it is what it is. Cheap quality guitars. That does not mean Fender or Gibson are bad huh ? If the prices on japanes copies surpasses original reissues I will stick with the original brands ! However, If we ...

Edwards Laquer-top Les Pauls... Anybody got one ?

Hi ! After spending this christmas at home, I?ve had the pleasure of visiting different japanese guitar-shops from my livingroom. I am really curious about the SD equipped Edwards Les Paul std?s I?ve seen, nice tops, laqer finish etc.... Are they as good as they seem to be ? The Bacchus Zemaitis cop...

For what its worth...

Hello ! It probably won?t mean a lot to most of you guys, But the "B-bender post" brought to my mind that Oystein Sunde (One of Norways most profiled guitarists for the last 35 years) use an original red b-bender-equipped Breezysound a lot. I have seen him using it live, and it also appeared in coun...

Hi ! There definitly exist original Tokai B-bender teles ! Norwegian guitarist Oystein Sunde has used a red one for years. I also happen to know a guy who has a blonde one, but that one is heavily modified, with a Fender neck, pickguard from an old Buck Owens record, a thousand autographs etc... I w...

ES 120

Hi ! I?ve seen the inlaid hedstocks, and although it does look a bit funny on an otherwise quite plain guitar, it would not bother me much if the price was right. What i find appealing with the new ES120 is that it comes in nitro cellulose laqer. The plastic looks will probably not last forever like...

BOOGIE...ETC

Hi Loverocker UK ! The LS80 was bought from "Katana". It seems to have a One piece back and neck ?cept for wings on the headstock. Frets are laying over the binding, unlike the high end models, but actually that is how I prefer things. The top is a light but tight pinstripe flame pattern, and the gr...

Looking for early/mid eighties Tokai es335 replica.

Hello ! I am not going to buy today, as I just got a new guitar, but a month or two into the new year will probably be the right time. If you do not have a guitar for sale, I would like to hear from all of you who are lucky enough to play/own one. The new ES120s in natural looks stunning... Do they ...

add Joe Walsh

Hi ! A friend of mine saw Billy Gibbons in Norway a few years ago, and I remember he thought Gibbons was playing a tokai... I think it was the Antenna tour. I also heard Joe Walsh toured with tokais in the mid eighties, because they could easily be replaced when stolen.... :lol: I have seen some old...

Boogie

Well, I actually got my LS-80 (with SD alnico Pro II, according to the seller) yesterday, but I have been playing it A LOT through a 1976 Boogie mk1, along with some Allman Brothers records. I have allways tried to get Dickey Betts low-gain, still sustaining tone (like "Blue sky" on Eat a peach), an...

New to this board

Hello everybody ! I have just recieved my ?85 LS80 directly from Japan. I am not new to tokai, as I had a Limited edition "super-strat" in the mid eighties ( sold to buy american guitars we all thought was better....), and my brother had a few, early 80?s Springy sound and two 80?s Love Rocks.
