Re: Springy Sound under the hood Question

In the meantime I’ve found out this particular piece was apparently sourced thru the German distributor in 2014.

What really confuses me is in deed the original fender style headstock with the 7okai logo. that just doesn't match up with everything I was able to find out so far. I've emailed Tokai to we will see. In the meantime if anyon...

Re: Springy Sound under the hood Question

Thanks brokentoes.

Re: Springy Sound under the hood Question

Thanks felixcatus for the reply. can you tell me a bit more about the "special order" or point me to a thread. Did they also come with original headstock and spaghetti logo? This is where I get confused. This is a picture of the headstock: https://i.ibb.co/mHpYN7s/Bildschirmfoto-2019-10-21-um-13-23-...
