SG Ebay UK - Is this correct?

It wasnt Cuthbertsons it was Grants Music. Those indeed were the days....getting the train up to Glasgow, stopping and getting potato fritters with brown sauce from the Kings Cafe.

As I remember it the story went as follows:- Fender was looking to have some cheaper budget line copies made in Japan. They approached Tokai who agreed to make so...

This video gives a good indication of the sound of the Tonerider Surfaris pickups that these are fitted with. Heard a few comments about them being slightly bright which I would tend to agree with so far. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uLB9x-EO7Rc I like the extra switch. Wonder what this is? Neck ...
