Strict material standards for the perfect guitar

Use of the world's first NC router.

Natural Drying:

Curly maple and other valuable guitar materials collected from all over the world will be the best materials for making guitars alter log sawing. So we will go on a long journey of natural drying. It is an extremely important process to reduce the water content of "free water" in wood to 18% or less. The day when I was exposed to Hamamatsu's famous product (Haizumi) for about 2 to 5 years and became a guitar is earnestly celebrated.

Artificial Drying:

The material that has been awakened from a long, long, naturally dried sleep is to remove the "bound water" attached to the tissues in the taste material that is subjected to artificial drying for about 1 to 2 weeks with intense heat and steam. The staff in charge is always fighting the instrument. Especially Tramoku Is done carefully. This is because the material is not sufficiently naturally dried, the artificial drying will be severely rejected as a musical instrument material. It is also common sense that it is basic and common sense to dry only the same material.

Seasoning:

Well-seasoned materials that have been artificially dried and products that are in the process of being woodworked enter the seasoning room, which is air conditioned without rest. This room, which is always kept at a temperature of 20ª C and a humidity of 35% is called the "Tokai Califomia Room". With a standard equilibrium moisture content of 7 to 8%. It is a perfect material for musical instruments.

Material check and body material composition:

The seasoned material undergoes strict checks such as plate thickness, phase, kanakui, and kusare, and is steadily steadily checked. Only carefully selected materials are recognized as guitar materials and are left as body materials and neck materials. For the first time, a body configuration such as book matched 2 piece maple top and mahogany piece back is performed, and the process finally proceeds to body processing.

Amazing body processing:

"NC router" boasting unrivaled and overwhelming accuracy. With this pneumatic control router, the LS series and LC series will be revived over time. With the introduction of the "3D router" that can process not only the outer circumference and drilling, but also all three dimensional objects, high-performance Vintage models are born one after another. which is exactly the hometown of quality models. Of course, Tokai is the first in the world to make a guitar with this NC router. The body created in this way is now modified by an experienced craftsman to create a more perfect and accurate guitar with a neck joint.

Neck processing & joint:

The neck that is recommended in parallel is the mahogany 1-piece neck that Tokai adopted for the first time in Japan. With a head angle of 18 ° and no heel joint, this neck is extremely difficult to machine, and after the truss rod is set accurately, the grip shape is handed by a delicate craftsman, and the flea and swordsman canna.. Swords, woodworking rods, trusses, and other well-used tools are used to finish the work. And the rose fingerboard is laminated and the body and perfect joint.

Once again, we will enter the painting process, which is the highlight of Tokai's technology."

I want you to know the mystery and depth of musical instruments through the wonderfulness of Toramoku. Here is the secret of uncompromising great sound.

-Tramoku Standard Les Paul Electric Guitar King Stradivarius,

a solid quitar as a masterpiece, is a Tramoku standard model that has become a coveted target not only for professional musicians but also for vintage guitar enthusiasts. The arched top made of curly maple with vivid cross grains of the tiger stripe boasts a high-grade sound peculiar to the standard by drawing out excellent acoustic characteristics as well as boasting an artistic and perfected beauty. This curly maple, which is rare in the world, was originally used as a very valuable material among violin makers in the Cremona region, and has produced many inscriptions. In the sold body, it was used for the Les Paul standard manufactured around '58-'60, and the popularity that can be said to be overheated for the past few years as the highest peak or the old model is only increasing the acceleration. Here, we will explore how the standard model by Curly Maple Top, which can be said to be the ultimate of this Vintage guitar, is produced, and the charm of Curly Maple, which is the source or the standard model, and the process or making the guitar created by Tokai's technology. About how to call Toramoku and Moku (left) ... There are many different ways to call this maple material. which is generically called toramoku (raw). Including general curly maple, tiger maple. figured maple, fiddleback maple, flame maple. etc. And this toramoku is by no means a grain of wood. Moku is a twist or wrinkle of a tree as it is written in a book, that is, the growth process of a tree creates this moku. Thick Mokuze fine Moku and Tamamoku Segira Gira Moku indicate the growing environment. How Is Toramoku born? So, I mentioned a little about how this Toramoku-curly maple is born. but its growing environment has a great influence. Most of the tramoku are found in cold regions around the world and in extremely bad conditions, such as valleys with strong winds and signs of poor weather conditions. In the process of abnormal development (heather) is already created. Also, since they are all born under different conditions one by one, they are born from gingin toramoku, thin cross-grained ones, those that do not have much moku but have a solid organization, and lightly and rarely born like tamamoku (bird's eye). There are various things such as tech. Not all of them have great toramoku, and if you understand the area well and look at the guitar, you will get a different taste. It is said to be the pinnacle of ingredients such as taste. However, the reason why it is so good is that the factor of ITA-Romoro is unfortunately still unclear theoretically. And that's the mystery of wood, so musical instruments are interesting. This is just a result theory, and when comparing a normal maple top and a curly maple top under the same conditions, the Tramoku maple sounds better. So, the reason why all the professional artists in the world are pursuing the standard model '58- '60 is a nod. What's more, if it's visually valuable great, old guitar enthusiasts can't help but become more and more popular. Tokai Perfect Replica LS Series: That doesn't mean the sound of a regular maple top is bad. If you use the same material as the original, solid maple and solid mahogany back like the Tokai 58 standard model. and incorporate the best technology and replica it, you can create a super sound that is as good as Tramoku, and you can also clearly express your personality. I think it's more important to choose a guitar that can be claimed. Even if you look at the top artist Tramoku Standard, each one is different. and there is a wide variety or things from Van Halen's Mechatra to Steve Lukather's favorite instrument. Kai is severely collected from al over the world. Using the rare curly maple, I keep keeping super spec guitars in the hands of professional artists in the word and you. Tokai LS series Vintage model 58 I want you to experience the fantastic great sound of the standard model as well.


Toramoku pattern material other than maple ?:

If you just want to find a material that has a striped pattern or a toramoku pattern, there are many, and on the contrary, there are many toramoku patterns that nave a ginging glare than this maple. For example, the most amazing thing in this itself is horse chestnut wood (on the photo). At first glance, there are few people who can distinguish this from this maple even though it has a large Tatari tramoku. In addition, there are many various materials in the world such as Sycamore and Anegre, and if they are manufactured without considering the acoustic characteristics, they must be a mountain of Tramoku Standard and Tramoku Guitar all over Japan, no. all over the world. The reason why Tokai keeps sticking to this maple is because he wants lo reproduce the old standard great sound with the same specifications as the original material. Even if there is a tramoku, the sound is muted when a soft material is pasted on the top, which is completely different from the maple book and on the contrary, it may be killing the wonderful sound created by the body construction with the maple top and mahogany back. Tokai uses curly maple for the Vintage model to reproduce the true Tramoku standard, and selected maple for the 58 standard model and continues to make thorough guitars without compromise based on sound. It goes without saying that the mahogany 1-piece top and mahogany peace back are also a major factor in creating a great sound by becoming a powerful player under En. Tokai is the only standard model in the world that has been perfectly and faithfully reprinted so far.

The project team's top secret color composition that further enhances the perfection as an instrument.

• Special Old Finish: Painting serves as an instrument in addition to protecting the guitar. The real game that expresses beauty. Tokai has finally completed a special old finish that is often found on Vintage models. VF = violin finish. The tasteful deep color that the sunburst part due to aging peculiar to the Vintage model is lemon-dropped is beautifully reproduced by the top secret color composition and finish. E. Van Hee revived the old colors found in the collects of Iren and Norman Harris. It's already a hot topic among rare guitar enthusiasts. I even added a second name called Vintage Finish. In addition to this, the old cherry sunburst (OS), which is familiar to the orthodox Jimmy Page color, and the most popular and popular cherry sunburst (CS) are the three colors of the Vintage model. In addition, the 58 standard model is available in a total of five colors, the original colors Matte Gold Top (G), OS /CS. and Brown Sunburst (BS) Black (BB). In addition, the special model LS 100S has two optional colors. Old Natural (ON) and Old Red (OR). The LC series is available in the familiar wine red (WR) and CS / BB, all boasting great coloring. And the LS200 has a cashew finish, and the LS80 and above has a rattvian finish which is a gorgeous and special old color finish that can never be imitated.

• Bubbling... Completed assembling... Finally, the painted guitar is finished with water polishing, buffing, etc. to make it shiny, and then it goes into the final process of mounting and assembling parts. Of course, strict checks and meticulous attention are taken, and the process progresses and is finally completed. Even if the process is briefly explained, it is as above, and many detailed work and processes are still included in it. Perhaps one guitar will be born from the amount of work that can not be written even if all this back side is applied to it. By all means, I want you to take good care of yourself and greatly improve your music mind through the instrument. and create even more wonderful sounds.

• ES series ... The ES series is born from a completely different production line from
the LS / LC series. Each one is carefully made based on advanced technology,
and the craftsman's long guitar making know-how. Only the same structure as the so-called Hako guitar, the finish of the body construction with the arched top & back and the side is the decisive factor. ES jazz and ES rock models born from handcrafts. Wrap yourself in a special old finish with colorful Tokai Red (TR) natural (N) that makes the
best use of the material, and black sambast (SB) that beautifully reproduces the traditional color tone, and it is a return to the hot music scene.

Before I knew it, I was alive in music. The guitar existed as our wardrobe before we knew it. All youth cultures can no longer be considered separate from music ... Perhaps the new Yang culture of the future will be born with music at its core. A single guitar can change the world. Perhaps the other you are sleeping. Discover another new self, live your life rhythmically, touch revolutionary super goods and attempt self-innovation. This feature is a music innovation file that we definitely want to read in order to build a new lifestyle.
