ha ha, i've got a '77 maple neck fender strat (lacquer is coming away from the fret board) and it's a great guitar, no wobbly neck, and a great tone.
You are lucky it's a maple neck

They are lovely guitars and I used to have an actual fender 70's three bolt which was horrific. I tested one USA Strat 1978 model the other day, it was horrible! Heavy, ugly, dead/dull sounding and wi ...

They differ with hardware, materials and finish. SS-80s are the top of the heap with I believe SS-36 at the bottom. Nice copies of 707s strats. It must be relevant then, when deciding how much to pay ...

I am sure in 20 years people will be happy to chose the "old" premium ones from 2012 over the latest LS-800 premium models.

You are right there my friend

while modern premium models are LS-160 and up (or LS-150 plain top only, prior to 2009).



Not too sure what this means, but I'll check it out in an encyclopaedia.

I think it means that if ...

Thanks Reborn Old, this is what I was after with my post, opinions from people that own or have tried both new and old Tokai?s. Your post is very interesting indeed.

It is very useful to know that ...

After I got my 1989 LS-55 I fully understand what the fuzz is about. It?s better IMHO than any Gibson LP that I have owned and played. It has this singing woody feel and I can get rich harmonics all o ...

A philosophical question. In old and new there are guitars with different specs (wood, puckups, bridge, caps)
So ist really depends. Is a LS-50 from the eighties better than a 2012 LS-360? Your milea ...

It would be interesting to hear from people that have played both the ?old? Reborns and Love Rocks and have also played and examined the newer high end guitars from Tokai, say guitars made after 2000. ...

It seems to be hard for me to find a dealer that is willing to order these pots for me, in Iceland anyway. ;-(

Thanks mate. I think Yamaha discontinued the push/push pots used in the "old" SG1000 and SG2000. I have been trying in vain to find out what they use in the new/reissue SG1000/2000 guitars. ...

I have a nice 1998 Yamaha SG 1000. It has been refretted and unfortunately the pots have been changed. It probably had two 500K Volume pots originally and two push/push tone pots, probably 300K. It ha ...
