Re: Book, Tokai The Vintage Years 1977-1986

This awesome book arrived here today (in Sweden). I have to admit I had no idea what kind of item I was collecting at first, but when I realised the parcel felt like some kinda book I spontaneously went: ´Whooa, the Tokai book has arrived!" (and I was right.. for once!) Thanks Peter (and also Jesus ...

Unfortunately, I can't answer your question about these stamps. Some experts here need to chime in.

But pleease show us pictures of that metallic gold strat! :D We don't see enough of these here.

A thread filled with gorgeous strats, I assumed. Well, it was indeed, but unfortunately revived by another f*****g spambot.

.. What helps me too is that vBulletin has a button to report spammy posts, so I don't have to sift through everything that's being posted every day, I'm getting notified about those via email. This forum doesn't seem to have such a button. :( .. Yeah, a rebort button would be at least some help, e...

Yeah, the spam situation is really bad right now. I remember other forums being attacked like this ten-fifteen years back, and then it was gone.

I really thought spam like this was a thing in the past, but I was obviously very wrong. Hopefully things will be better soon.

I have a SD403 (which can be seen in the catalogue pic felixcatus posted), and it's very similar to your guitar. It doesn't have that type of tremolo or the locking nut, and it has only two control knobs. But the single coils looks exactly the same underneath as yours. I'd say as well that your guit...

It was around 2004 I bought a -01 Tokai SG (I think the model is SG60). A bit of a coincidence, since I got it at a sale after the owner of the oldest music shop in town had passed away. There was quite a line outside before opening that day, but I got in pretty fast. I was looking for some US Fende...

I've only bought one guitar this year (well, so far): A Tokai LS80 1984. When stuff like that pops up in my parts of the world, you got to act fast.
