I remember reading an article where Tim Farriss talked about endorsing Tokai guitars and if IIRC he said something along the lines of Tokai sending him many guitars. He said most were given away to family and friends. The Tele Tim plays in this TV performance is a Tokai and I can 100% confirm this a...

I've played alot of guitars with humbucker EMG pickups and I haven't like any of them. Having said that I have a T set in my Tele and a J set in my Jazz bass and love them. I've also played a strat with the gilmour set and thought that sounded real nice too so in my experience it's just their humbuc...

Simplest way is to copy and paste contents to a folder on the computer. You could also open a Dropbox account and back everything up there or just us that as the share folder and use the external drive to backup Dropbox

They sound very good, especially the neck pickup. I must admit though I've been tempted for a longtime now to put a set of bare knuckle pick ups in a guitar and I'm thinking this might be the perfect recipient for it. Maybe do a wiring and cap upgrade too. Anyone put a set of Stormy Mondays or Mules...

I remember seeing these sold in Australia in the early 90's. Picked a few up and they sounded great. Don't have any more information on them but I do remember some really nice sunburst strats and teles in the 60's style with rosewood slab fingerboards.

I've heard great things about Bare Knuckle Pickups.

Very tempted myself to buy a set of Stormy Mondays.

Did the truss rod cover fit in the standard screw holes?

The more I play this the more impressed I am! You're dead right, nothing entry level about this guitar.

I did some searching and it seems there's 2 types of Vintage MKII pickup but not alot of information on the MK2s

I have 2 Levinson Blades from the early 90's. Both 100% original and both made in Japan. 1. RH-1 (bought new in 1992) which has a Mahogany Body, Maple Neck and Rosewood fingerboard. Sounds incredible and easily my favourite guitar. 2. RH-2 (approx. 1990) which has Sen Ash Body and 1 pc Maple Neck. A...
