@Paladin2019 Thanks for the info about the caps. I did not know there was a difference from the models. I knew about the Seth Lovers and the Aluminum tail piece. Though those two are easily replaced. The FEB it the one thing that cannot be easily replaced. Though a Luther can do it. I have seen a fe...

Is this a LS320?

Is this a 320? Looks like a dark FB to me (Jacaranda ). But I hear other saying Jacaranda translates to something else in Japanese. And is not actually Jacaranda but Brazilian. Anyways it clearly does not look like Ebony to me. Wondering if the seller is trying to pass off a 200 as a 320. http://www...

Anyone have a Tokai LG series guitar?

I have always wondered about these PRS type guitars from Tokai. They start off at a LG38 or so then go up. Not sure how high. Have seen 150's. Tokai had some prototypes on their site before they re-did it a few months ago. But they are all sold out. From Tokai site: These look cool but they are gone...

I got the tele today from Tokai. It is a really great guitar. First I played the guitar to my Fender USA Tele unplugged. The tokai just blows away the fender that way. Then I plugged into a amp the fender sounded a little better. I do not like the stock tokai pickups. I had a set of good Fralin pick...

@brokentoes I will let you guys know when it gets here. I bought two SEB guitars from Tokai that were at the NAMM show last year 2018. One Strat and one J-bass. Both high end Tokias but with a poly finish. I swapped out the electronics and put new pickups in the J-bass. Have not down that yet with t...

FGN Expert clear coat job

I got a FGN expert a few months ago. I bought a few other FGN/Fujigen guitars beofore. They are such great guitars. I heard people talking about the expert as the one you gotta get. For some reason the clear coat ones only come in stupid 80's colors bright Blue, orange, pink etc. I got the matte bla...

I bought way too many guitars in 2018. The two favorite probably are History GH-LCV. Made by Fujigen in 2011. I bought one them liked it so much. Saw another one a few months later for a really good deal and could not turn it down. From a totally different seller. Both happened to be 2011 models. Lo...

The CE 2000t I have is a smaller size. Copy of a Martin 00041 I think you are right about the YJ one I posted. Dread size. I just saw the 2000 and figured it was the same as mine. Now that I take a look at it it is defiantly dread size. I guess that is the difference from the t model. From a old Cat...

The CE-2000 on YJ just jumped in price since I posted it. It was $100 when I posted it now $600 and still going up maybe. I paid about $500 or so with shipping for my CE-2000t a few years ago (not sure if the one on YJ is a t). So, it was a really good deal. It was local about 4 hours away. As for t...

Tokai Cats Eyes CE-2000 on YJ

I have one of these exact same models though mine is a 1981. Mines does not have the original case like this one does. Fantastic guitar. If I did not have this guitar already I would buy it.

@guitar hiro Thanks for the info. That is very useful. The build quality is just amazing on the GH-LCV I have. On top of that I put Throbak 101+ pickups in it and it just smokes with how it sounds. I really could not imagine much better build quality on any guitar. I would love to one day get a 320 ...
