Yeah, but I don't think Gibson will stop Richard selling guitars to Germany.

Just had a reply to an email I sent to Richtone this morning. They confirm that they are no longer listing Tokais on the web site due to an agreement they have with Gibson. However they pointed me in the direction of a new company on Ebay, Roninguitars and mentioned they do still have Tokais in the ...

Have you thought about the Vox AC4tv combo or AC4TVH / V112TV Head & Cab. I have the seperates and love the tone. It also offers 3 output settings, 4w, 1w, and 1/4w. I haven't heard a bad word about theses amps. The chap at Rat Amps rates it highly too:

Well finally got to speak to the manager of the shop. Initially he only wanted to send out replacement studs but after some discussion he has also agreed to foot the bill for a proper set up to be done by my luthier.

I am officially a happy chappie! :D :D

Lesblues Was that neck "blemish" polish, did it rub off? I tried to rub it off with a cloth, no luck. But that might be my big fat fingers! I'm sure it's just some white polish that's hardened...or ask your tech to try buff it out. The tech did say he was fairly sure that it was polish compound. On...

I agree that the tail-piece studs were almost certainly not wrecked by Tokai. I haven't had to adjust the height of the tailpiece on any of the Tokais I've had, not one...I've never touched a tailpiece screw, they come set at the perfect height from the factory. Whoever adjusted the tailpiece screw...

No response from them today. I emailed them, said that I wanted them to provide genuine Tokai replacements, and that Bob at Tokai thinks they have them in stock. I also want them to pay for a set up, which was included in the sale price and has not been done properly. Strings 5 and 6 are rattling qu...

I received a reply from Bob at Tokai Guitars UK this morning about the 2010 serial number and the earlier model number. Bob said:

"Hi Les we keep the model numbers the same in the UK so when Japan change and put the prices up we keep ours the same"

So that puts my mind at rest on that score.

Thanks guys, I already emailed Bob about the serial number/model number. May not get a response until tomorrow though. I'd ask the shop and Bob at Tokai UK about the model number. What Diamond says about the years and serial numbers appears correct and Bob or the shop may have the explanation. Anywa...
