I am really wondering about the low price and even BIN...this guy might be crazy,selling this guitar starting at 1 euro would bring him much more money

Well, when you open with a buy it now and also take best offers, it means you'll take less than what you're asking for. I say start it at $1 and let it ride.

to see one in this condition ...and in black.... is very unusual

especially with the Peter Green phase switching ...

i'm guessing it's Nitro ...but from this distance it's hard to tell ...

Mr Tokai sure broke the mould when he created this baby ....

but it was the 30th anniversary of the building of PROSPEC bridge near Tokyo ....and so it only seems right to have given us this masterpiece

Ladies and Gentlemen ...the "Laugh Rock"...

The Tokai Anniversary GA130 guitars are cheap here in germany. In april i bought one brand new in the red color from ebay. The price was in the same range. I have read about this guitars on the internet before and i will never sell it. It sounds and plays very good and the weight is only 3.5 kg.

The color was sanded of and i put a oil and wax finish on. The pickups were switched to seymour duncan alnico pro II. And ready was my new number one guitar.

Pictures:








A short soundclip of this guitar is on my myspace website.

@marcusnieman: A very pretty one with the flame maple top. I had not the luck to get one of those with the great tops. They were sold out.

@t.olsen: You are right. This guitar feels like a much more expensive one.

Got mine for less than that new, but I'd have to say that ?600 secondhand would still be a decent price. Here it is again.





Incidentally, if anyone turns up a nicely fitting case, could you let me know which one it is?

Great guitar..... that's a gorgeous quilt top you have

Tonelock was fitted on the bridge and tailpiece on mine, presumably since it was designated as the 150Q and effectively the top of the line. It's an extraordinarily resonant guitar, but I'm sure it would be even if I scrapped all of the Faber stuff. Not that I'm about to, mind.
