Thanks Blue, I thought so myself but recently I heard the DM theory. Never liked DMs much anyway and this thing sounds insanely good on all settings so I kind of felt it can't be DM's. The fact that the guitar is under seven pounds helps maybe, I don't know. I played it recently at a local jam and i...

I'm not surprised, Felix. The "E"s sound as good as anything I've heard in a Strat so far. The in between settings are especially good and the bridge not harsh or chilly, just perfect. I honestly preferred my ST80 over the '56 Fender I borrowed recently, sound-wise and quality-wise. I can't believe ...

Springysound "E" stamped pickups.

These really do sound good to me. I managed to compare with an original 1956 Strat recently. Someone said they were made by DiMarzio, is that correct ?

Thanks,

Mike.

Tokai or possibly Fender neck required.

Prefferably an older one as it's going on an old guitar but anything decent considered!🐸

Does anyone know if a Fender neck will fit a Tokai neck pocket? If so, that'll do just the same.

I used to own this one for around a decade. I got her from Mark when he lived in Balham and I went on the tube the Sunday after the London bomb attack to get her. I was nervous but she was worth it. Played at many jam nights in pubs around Essex and in several bands. Much admired and played by other...

The guitar has just been professionally set-up by a great luthier so now it plays and sounds even better than before!

Springsound Trem Arm.

Hey Guys, I need to know what the thread size is for a 1980 Springysound tremolo arm. I am returning to UK where the Springysound is and have two arms here and one is Fender and one is the Tokai. I have no idea which is which but one has a more pointed plastic grip than the other - any got a photo o...

It really is a great guitar - you won't regret buying it. I had a '59 Junior at the same time and the neck on the Tokai was identical to that, the fingerboard is beautiful too - I really miss this one.

I used to own this guitar. Its very nice and saw many gigs in the time that I had it. It's kind of weird to see it on here for sale - like seeing an old girlfriend you were in love with once. :oops:

I've had loads of messages regarding this guitar and I do still have it as I've been out of the country for several months.

It's still available and is now in the UK.

Cheers

Mike.
