Re: Tokai TGS -LSS93 BB

I'm not familiar with that model at all. However, if it is like the one you linked, all mahogany body, carved top, wrap tail and P90s it is certainly an uncommon model. But I wouldn't know if only a few were made. I recently purchased a similar Tokai goldtop w/ P90s and a wraptail. It does have a ma...

Re: Tokai PR80 for sale

http://www.tokaiforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=22548 You might find it is Korean or Chinese made though I'm no expert in this particular model, but nothing in the pictures indicate Korean or Chinese made to me. The serial number is stamped and consistent with every other modern MIJ Tokai I've seen. ...

I changed my mind for now after spending a few hours with her over the weekend.
Always the bloody fear to let one go... :oops: :evil: :roll:
Good decision. Every time I pick mine up, I'm instantly reminded why it's on my "never sell" list.

Completely agree. My 2003 LS-320 would be the last guitar out the door if it ever came to that. Mine is also completely stock, though someone did install a pickguard at some point.

SOLD-2011 Edwards E-LP 132 LTS/RE Jimmy Page Relic w/Switch

I think most around here know this guitar. It is factory relic'd (nothing too severe), has Seymour Duncans (SH-1N in the neck; Custom in the bridge), and is wired with Edwards/ESP Super Circuit (4 push/pull pots) that gives you a total of 20 different switching combinations (see picture). Sounds gre...

That is one hot guitar. I've been obsessed with b benders since I saw Marty Stuart play his in concert a few weeks ago. Alas, I'm in the US and I'm sure shipping puts it out of reach.

I have 2 in route now. 1 has been stuck in Chicago customs for three days and one left Japan today. I'm not worried about the delay, the past 3 guitars (all in late 2016) were delayed anywhere from 3 days to 3 weeks. Hopefully there will be no issues, but I'm going to hold off any additional imports...

You mean like this? It's a pretty amazing guitar that I'm not too interested in selling. But I'll send you a PM. http://i29.photobucket.com/albums/c270/currypowder1/Current%20Gear/Navigator%20Black%20Beauty/IMG_2101.jpg http://i29.photobucket.com/albums/c270/currypowder1/Current%20Gear/Navigator%20B...

I'll play. This Fujigen produced History guitar is the only quilt top I've ever owned. It's a solid quilt maple top.

Last year I picked up a high end 2005 History SH-L2. Spec-wise, it is on par with my Tokai LS-320 and anything that comes out of Gibson's Custom Shop. 1 piece Honduras Mahogany body, Jacaranda Rosewood fretboard, maple neck binding, quilted maple top. Made by Fujigen with great fit and finish, playa...

No probably about it, you WILL regret letting it go. My '02 LS-320 is the one guitar I would keep if circumstances forced me to get rid of everything else. Just don't do it!

Hi Frank. Welcome to the forum. Thanks for sharing your tour and site.

I actually picked up your book just about a month ago. I haven't had a chance to much more than skim it so far, but it looks like a great source. I'm looking forward to digging into it.
