Thanks for your response, Peter Mac, even if it was a bit "tongue in cheek". I'd be curious to know how you arrived at your conclusion, however. What does YSO stand for? No, the guitar is a right-han ...

I've had problems loosening the screws on the pickup ring on the Reborn Old. They're probably stripped so I can't help you with that. However, I have a ST-80 SpringySound and the '81 LS-80 Goldtop. I ...

This is a bit tricky. I popped the pickup off the LS-80. It looks like the tenon is generally more or less flush with the cavity. However, the base of the tenon (if it is part of the tenon) appears t ...

Just a coincidence but I happen to own both of those models. My Reborn Old is a black LS-50 Standard and the '81 Goldtop is a LS-80. Both are killer instruments (the Standard has the original Gotoh PA ...

Last week I picked up a Tokai Model 32 acoustic which was advertised to be a 70's "lawsuit" type guitar. It has a spruce or cedar top, and mahogany back and sides. Nice wood inlay on the edges and aro ...

Just curious. Did Tokai make 70/80's acoustics that paralleled their Les Paul and Strat replicas in quality and sound, and were fairly representative of models of another USA-made company like Martin? ...

Thanks, Peter Mac. Makes me feel even better about the guitar. I'm not about to strip the finish. I've owned a number of flametops, even a Guitar Trader reissue. The funny thing about flametops is tha ...

I have a '80 Reborn Old (LS-50 LP Style) that has circuit boards in the tone control cavity. I'm certain the guitar's electronics are all original as I've seen the circuit board in pictures of other T ...

Thanks Peter Mac. It's probably a '64 replica then. The previous owner thought it was a '62 but there seems to be so much misinformation or a lack of real knowledge circulating about Tokai's that I'm ...

SpringySounds seem to have a rather thin rosewood veneer on their '62 replica necks. Is there a specific reason in regard to tone why the rosewood veneer would be considerably thinner than the Fender ...

Wow. Great question and I'm sure the responses will be an interesting read. I love a lot of players and styles and can probably pick dozens of favorites. Clapton's 335 on "Crossroads" is a winner as i ...

I currently own a Reborn Old (LP type) and a '64 replica Springy Sound Strat with a rosewood board and a V-neck. These are both wonderful instruments in their own right. I've owned well over a hundred ...

I think its great the way it is. I wouldn't replace the headstock with a body design, but you might consider a "SpringySound" or BreezySound" headstock later on to please all Tokai owners. Excellent p ...
