Thanks for the info! I'm the one who posted about the 3-pu greco standard. The guitar isn't double-binded and it has the pearloid type tuners. It also doesn't have the diamond inlay on the headstock, just 'greco' and a 'standard' truss cover. The tuners have 'greco deluxe' on them. Humbuckers are no...

I came across a greco LP sunburst that seems to have the hollow chambers and don't know anything about the guitar. It's a 3 pickup configuration with no inlays on the headstock (just the greco label) and trapezoids on the neck. I can't remember the serial but it starts with a G787...something someth...

yamaha sg line

i came across a yamaha sg400 and a yamaha sg3000 but am having a hard time getting info about them over the net. can anyone help me try to figure out dating for these guitars? i've been a bit lucky with the sg3000 but the info is still far from enlightening. and the sg400? forget about it. i can't f...

i jumped in the water and bought both strats. :D these are great guitars and they've already inspired me to play more than i have for a long time. i've never been good at comparing guitars tonewise but i've handled enough to say that these 'feel' more right than most fenders and other copies that i'...

wow. i can't even think of selling the two springy strats that i have now that i've found them. (yes i bought the two guitars i posted about :D )

i'll probably keep the cream one stock and modify the red one a bit to make it my main gigging partner. i'll post more pics soon.

i found another tokai springy sound. a previous owner tried scratching off the decal and only the 7 in 7okai was left. saddles and nut have been replaced with graphites and the trem block and plate appear to be cheap replacements too. it's wine red, has deluxe-stamped tuners, a 't' type string tree ...

got the pictures but i misplaced the usb cable. i'll buy one later. we found a serial number stamped on the heel end of the neck. a ghost impression has been transfered on the neck cavity of the body. serial # 8000963. one of the tuners has also been replaced. the others are vintage 'tokai'-stamped ...

I'm going to borrow a digicam and try to take pictures of it later. :D The guitar is a nicely aged white with a chunky maple neck, spaghetti logo and vintage tuners. everything seems legit from the front including the tokai-stamped saddles and button stringtree. the neckplate size and the lacking of...

Springy with narrow neckplate

Does anyone have any additional information about the strats with narrow neckplates. I've spotted a spaghetti logo and maple necked one with the said plate that doesn't have a serial number. It's getting me very curious and I want to know more about these models since it isn't mentioned in the regis...

thanks, ian! i didn't know that. i actually thought the contrary to be true. thank you again for clearing that up! the guitar seems to be one of the older strat replicas without a serial number on the neckplate which also happens to be smaller than the standard plates. 'tokai' markings are on both t...

two-piece replica strat bodies

is it common for the early-80s/late-70s stratocaster replicas to have two piece bodies? i saw a cream one that looks bookmatched and am at a loss if i should consider buying it or not. thanks for looking! =)
