Re: ST-45 or.... ?

They are very comfy. It won't take long to strip, clean and refit with a setup to your liking. I just did that to an Ibanez rs1300 for a work colleague, he couldn't belive the difference in appearance and playability, plus it sounded so much nicer too!

Re: Getting a first Tokai

looking like either a Chinese or Korean. there should be a label under the clear coat stating country of origin, some Korean ones didn't have ser #'s the truss rod cover is way off to one side on this one! the price is high, a new Chinese one could be had for less or look here for an example of a Ch...
