I'd like to buy a 1980s Tokai Springysound or Breezysound. I'm in the UK.

Anyone selling?

I have a 1978 ST100 that I'm considering selling (when order other guitar goes through successfully?).

FWIW (and I'm not so sure about the originallity of the arm that came with the ST80?) my arms (shapes) differ somewhat.

The DiMarzio Twang King sounds stellar in this guitar so I may still replace the bridge unit with one of these, but for now it ain't bad. Do most people leave the pickups alone on Breezy's do you ...

Hi there Felix,

No, I've installed a 250K tone and volume. The volume pot was 1meg actually, for some reason? But when I got it , it was being used as an Esquire, with only the bridge pickup on the ...

I bought the guitar for the wood not the electronics. When I buy old Tokais I always plan on replacing all the pots and PUs. At least this is what I did with all my Vintage Love Rocks. This is my ...

For 'vintage' sounding Strat pickups, there's a lot of (over)hype around original '1982 Fender Fullerton Red Bobbins', I have put those next to some 1978 Tokai 'E's.

You tell me, if any, which you ...

Thanks Felix,

I tried that method and find it really really unreliable , can be useful for seeing different shapes. But even then I found it really difficult to see much difference.
