Yes, the Tokai versions were solid state and had a small spring reverb. They were called a TA35.

Very nice. No brass nut or bridge plate on the TE80? Thanks felixcatus This TE-80 is a different spec as it has a L before the serial number. The rosewood on the fretboard is a thin veneer, not a slab like Fenders of 1964, which also had serial numbers that started with a L. ( I have to credit the ...

I had the great pleasure of seeing Snarky Puppy live last night in Liverpool. At the end of the gig I shook hands with Bob the guitarist. I asked him about his guitar and he says it's from '82. He said that he's tried other fender strats but his Tokai beats them. :D He wasn't aware of the Tokai Foru...

Interesting guitar. I'm unsure what this actually sounds like. Do you have any sound files? Can you get a hard case for this guitar? Thanks, Gary Hi Gary, I don't have any sound files, at present. However the guitar can give a varied range of tones given its coil tapping ability. I'll try to do som...

Thanks for all your kind words Paul / Pete. Yes, it's time for that guitar to move on as it's not getting the playing it deserves. Paul, you know I've got far too many toys to play with and I should thin things out a bit :-? There a red Love Rock II on ebay at the moment for a considerably higher am...
