C?mon, have a look at these, 1:1 replacement, and way better look, and lighter weight.

I use these models on 3+3 headstocks, and many of them on strats with tremolos in use. Perfect look, and function.

Hmm yes I find that one interesting too. Will it fit a Tokai right away you think? Yes, that will fit. Also there?s different versions of that bridge, ABR style, and Nashville style. If you want to get more infos about that just wait another two weeks or so, then I?ll get my shipment and will check...

Will also check out bel...

I thought we been talking about an LS140 - written in the first post - , but it?s been the LS95 wen been talking about. (so I was the confused one, sorry) LS95 models have standard bridges with hard zinc saddles, and that?s what felixcatus found on his guitar. Hope everything?s now right again! :win...

If everything with that guitar is correct, that should be brass saddles underneath the nickel and copper, yes.

No, only the higher model number guitars got brass saddle bridges, when described so in catalogue. Lower number japanese guitars got bridges from Gotoh or P.W (same as used omn Gibson since about 2004) with hard zinc saddles, then it looks grey, when putting the string to the side.

Before you can put nickel on you have to put copper on that. That?s the same on STPs, Bridges, ........... first the metal like aluminum, brass, or zinc alloy, then the copper, then the nickel. So when playing the nickel away you?ll see the copper. Keep on playing and you?ll reach the brass. You can...

Re: Price of a Tokai SG Junior.

.......And how do they compare to an original Gibson like "Colette", here?........... Great! Had some old G. Juniors here, like the Tokais better. They got the standard Tokai neck shape what?s good for me, as I do not like slim taper necks. Here?s two clips with tokai juniors. cheers, ACY! http://w...

Another thing about the bridges ........ think about the sound you wonna get. Brass saddles sound big different to hard zinc saddles like used on the Gotohs. The Gotohs (to me) sound more aggressive, a bit less mids, and more presence on upper strings. Brass saddles give you the old Les Paul sound (...
