Re: WTB Tokai Reborn

I'm located in Melbourne Australia and I'm in the market for a Tokai Reborn LP... berween '79 and '82...LS80, Ls100, or LS120. If there's anybody located in Australia looking at selling, feel free to pm me. My preference is for a slimmer neck profile, if they are in existence. T.I.A I'm selling one...

STUNNING Les Paul Reborn ls50. Plain top w tomato burst

I was asking $1900 but just dropped it to $1200. I've never seen one in better condition. I'm about to start my own business so I have to sell most of my gear to launch it. It is aging beaufully. The top is separating wonderfully to give it that legit vintage look and the finish is still shiny. In t...

Used a Tokai to recreate Alice In Chains classic studio tone

https://youtu.be/w-Ew18T75VQ

I wish I had thicker strings to better handle the tension and not be sloppy in the lows but I had a lot of ducks in a row.

Tokai was a VC-75.

I used it because of the longer scale, bolt on and had a SD JB installed.

It was something I wrote on the spot. The intro riff Kinda sounds like velvet revolver come to think of it haha. Yeah the original trem got beat to smithereens. I was in a thrash band for years and it was my only guitar, it held up well but the string blocks could not take the palm mutes any longer...

That is something else.... definitely carries 80s looks! Stupid question, but does the neck pickup ... sound the way they 'normally' sound or is it completely different as it's more in the 'middle' position.. Unfortunately the neck pickup is not great due to the angle/placement. It seems to have th...
