Marcus,

Holy crap! Well that incident would make me a little gunshy of scarf-jointed headstocks, too! :) I wonder if it was just a bad glue day at the factory?

Necks like that are super fragile - don't drop it. Are you sure about that? Technically the headstock-end scarf joint is stronger than a neck cut from one piece of wood, there's no cross grain at that "nasty point" with the scarf joint. That and the fact that a glue join is stronger than the wood i...

That's too bad, although in a way it's kind of cool. You'll know that your Special wasn't a conveyor belt, cookie cutter, assembly line guitar! :)

Wow, this is an old thread! :) Roe, let us know what you think of your Special! I eventually went with a Gibson Historic Special and it's my favourite guitar. I also bought one of togps' compensated aluminum tailpiece through the NA distributor and it was the final ingredient in making it a killer i...

No, it's "coming out of the gate" with an attitude. And you did.

I like this forum because it's one of the most civil on the net so I won't say any more about it.

In all fairness you did come off like a bit of a dick. Jim well, let's see; I posted a classified ad, I requested serious inquiries, no games, PM me if interested, I played along when I was getting shiz about the 'rare' word, and then I explained that I wasn't John C aka mijguitar........ ............

One piece body, too, eh!? Wow, that doesn't seem to be typical of "lower end" Tokais. Although 90,000 Yen isn't a very low end price...

Nice guitar!

On the bridge - I just bought one of those from Togps' N. American distributor for my LP Special. Great bridge!

I have a TJ60 that I contemplated "De-dimpling" at one time. :) I'm glad that I got over it and never made the attempt as odds are I would have totally 'effed it up.

It doesn't bother me in the slightest now!

Now an Epiphone? I'd take a coping saw to that ugly monstrosity in a second! :)

Nice!!! I love the small guard SG Junior look! How many pieces of wood in that body? One piece neck?

It's nice to see that they've changed the wraparound tailpiece to ones compensated for an unwound G as well.

I've got one and it's great! That one looks cooler than mine - mine has a very visible three-piece body.

For that price I'd grab it.
