marcusnieman, what is that second set of numbers that looks like another serial number? 8000864?

Good eye .... yes that is a second serial number. My assumption was that they put another neck on while the ink was still wet and then swapped it out for the one on it now.

Re: Tokai Bult Fernandes Stone Logo 1978 ST60?

And I'm making an assumption that the ones without serial numbers are a smaller plate. They may be the same. Would be nice if someone that has one could measure it. marcusnieman do you have one that you could measure? I actually do have mine out of storage and playing it. I'll measure tonite. As co...

Re: Identification Greco les paul

That's a beauty ..... I think that Greco had some of the most gorgeous bursts (particularly the plaintops) during the Super Real / Mint Collection era EG's. I love the Screamin 82 pickups too...... man, they have really shot up in pricing.

Re: Advice Needed: I Want a Different Tokai Strat From Mine

There are plenty of radius gauges available - I prefer this type because they are notched so that you can put them over your strings and they rest on the fretboard:

Re: Dusty Hill has passed

Dusty also sang Francine, Hi Fi Mama, and I think Party On The Patio. He also traded verses with Bil...
