That's a lovely looking guitar, Diamond. Is it yours, or have you played it? If so, what do you think? Ian's original question is a good one. I tried putting up a link to the Rockem Ebay ad, but it didn't work. However, if you type "Tokai Sonic Blue" into the Ebay search engine, that'll take you to ...

I had a similar experience with Gumtree, with a seller who lived only a few miles from me. What was particularly annoying was that the ad continued to appear for some weeks after my multiple emails, all unanswered. I wonder how quickly the ads are removed once a sale has been made?

Hello

Hi! I just wanted to say I?m a newbie here, so hello, and also that I?ve been amazed at the wealth of info available. Compared to most, my ownership of two Tokai Strats counts as little more than a passing interest, I guess. I bought my first new, in the mid-80s; it?s a Fiesta Red ST55 Goldstar, map...
