Re: Tokai Registry Link

I wanted to check some old Tokai catalogs, found this thread, cleared my history, still no luck.

When I click the link it is the Way Back Machine; many of the pages don't load.

Re: Tune of the day

Hey Marcus, I was just looking @ Doyle's web site this past weekend looking for tour dates. I agree with you on Doyle's talent; he is the REAL DEAL 8) First time I saw Doyle was in 1999 (Jellycream era) @ the Gypsy Tea Room in Deep Ellum. I still recall how blown away I was by Doyle's abilities both...

Re:

its the same ... all 90s are veneer top and all 150 and 240s are solid.. if you see a so called 150 without a solid top then its not a 150.. simple.. I don't believe "all" 150s are solid. There are some examples with associated paperwork/warranty card with matching serial # that show 150, that do h...

Re: Bacchus "Beginning of the New Tradition"

Generally great guitars, I've yet to get a turd. I would have to agree with that statement. I purchased my first Bacchus (Vintage Series) around 2005, around the general time frame the series was coming toward the end of production. I have owned at least one example of most of the Vintage Series li...

Re: Bacchus "Beginning of the New Tradition"

catalog does not list the fingerboard radius.
Finish is listed as, "lacquer." IMO & from my experience with BST examples from the era that means nitro lacquer over a poly base; all very thin.

Re: Bacchus "Beginning of the New Tradition"

from observing the photos that demonstrate the attributes IMO this example is a BST-54V, with the original MSRP of 108,000 yen. The example looks to be all original & it looks to be in great condition. It should have a slight V neck profile, along with a 2 piece center seam Ash body, and Alnico Spec...
