You might as well get a Gibson holly headstock veneer with the pearl logo if you want to do it properly :D I've seen various veneers on Ebay...what is a "holly" veneer? When you get it, why don?t you strip down the headstock, so the Tokai loggo get visible again like it should be ? Anders Sweden I'...

Yeah, the decal was changed to a Gibby LP, and when they shot the clear laquer over it, it shrunk a bit. It looks funny...sort of like a kid drew it on w/ a gold pen. But he's providing a new one, so I'll redo it myself. I have experience in this area.. :wink:

I'm pretty excited to get it! :D

Thanks Bryn!

Yeah I hate the ceramics in the Classic. My Classic had one of the original ceramics and a legit PAF in it. I swapped out both for the Seymour Duncan Antiquities and am very happy. Those Fralin PAFs are really nice too. Beautiful tone.

Hi, noob here w/ Tokai LP questions

Hello all, I'm Frank and new to this forum. I have a few questions and figured you guys would be the ones to ask. I've been playing guitar for 20+ years, and have had many guitars over the years....Strats, LPs, etc. I'm seriously considering buying a Tokai LP instead of a Gibson LP this time around....
