Also have a look at the UK Tokai distributor website:
www.tokai-guitars.co.uk/main.htm
You will find the SG models under the Loverock option??? as USG60 and USG 100. If you select the USG 60 you ...

The headstock on mine is as shown in the picture you posted, but in the UK the later ones have this additional 'pip' of protrusion at the centre top instead if the 'v' shape. I have a recent UK catal ...

I've owned a Tokai SG 60 (laterly called USG 60 I believe) for just over 2 years from new. It is basically a clone of the SG 61 re-issue and in my opinion is far better quality/construction thatn the ...

Ian,
The curved surface as you say would help with getting the correct neck angle for reasonable action etc. but the acoustic coupling would be poor owing to limited neck/body contact. All of which ...

Kherman,
Your pictures are very interesting, but the upper photo shows a somewhat convex face on the neck tenon suggesting a less than perfect fit to the neck pocket and potential alignment problems. ...

There seems to be a fixation with some people that older is always better which is simply not the case. In the late 60's I had a Strat that was absolute rubbish - poor string balance and action etc. ...

I'm afraid I could never see the point of the relic thing. Whay pay approx ?300 for someone to hack up an LS70? Its not going to magically give it an authentic 'aged tone'. Why not save the money e ...

The problem with some of the stores selling the Tokais is they do not indicate the model no. Some while ago I challenged the same store on their quilt top Love Rock which is up at ?999! I believe its ...
