Wow, great responses! I had given up on this thread. Too bad, I haven't been here for a few days and I clicked on that ebay link with 48 seconds left! LOL! I agree. I'd take an Edwards over a Gibson faded. I've played a couple and they weren't bad, but lacking something. The older ones with the neck...

Japanese LP Special double cuts?

I'm looking for a TV yellow double cut. I'm not limited. I'll go Gibson, Hamer, Tokai, Edwards, whatever as long as it is high quality and reasonably priced. I want two P90's and a solid mahogany TV yellow double cut body. I'd like a tune-o-matic with a stop-bar (I prefer it for hand position) but w...

++ on Schallers. I put them on all of my guitars. Use some felt between the strap button and the guitar and you won't cause any damage. Many higher end axes come with felt on the standard buttons. The only issues I've had is that some times the buttons loosen up because of high friction between the ...

+1 on that Javelin.

Maybe a vintage staggered? If so, a good choice, and the original Tokai p'ups are no big loss IMHO.

BTW, where are you in Sweden? I was in Europe on business the last 10 days, and I spent last weekend with a friend in Malmo.

Thanks! I'm actually most interested in the 59 RI neck profile. Are there any models that have the same neck profile and long neck tenon? I'm not sure that I need the Brazilian Rosewood board. I can't say this is universally true, but I've got two Gibby's (2001 R9 and 1989 std) and two Tokai LS's (...

Great idea! I did this two or three years ago, and haven't looked back. Putting a board together is a blast, and playing through it is even more fun! I don't know about "board of doom", but I've got: Boss TU2 > Clyde wah > Analogman BiComp > Amp Send > Maxon AD900 > Maxon CS-9 Pro > Voodoo Labs trem...

Chris, Cool, thanks for the update. I actually bought one for myself last year. It sounds pretty good, but it does color the tone quite a bit. I'm also less than enamored of the footswitch action. It's got this kind of hard-soft thing to toggle the speed vs turning off the effect. Can get hairy in a...

New Show Us Your Tokais Thread

I just took a bunch of pics for a show us your guitars thread on the gearpage, so I thought I'd do some double duty. Enjoy! 84 AST, 82 LS100, 83 LS80 http://i35.photobucket.com/albums/d196/SLawing/Tokais.jpg http://i35.photobucket.com/albums/d196/SLawing/84TokaiAST.jpg http://i35.photobucket.com/alb...

I think it's made of wood. Actually, I joined photobucket and reposted some of the photos a while ago, so now my argument outlined on page 2 should make more sense and be much easier to follow. In the interest of forum harmony I did not bump the thread at that point, since it seems that people have...

Cool.

I've got a '57 classic in the neck of my '83 LS80. A custom wound (a little hot - I think it's 9.5 K) Fralin in the bridge. That Fralin has some sack! Nice controllable feedback on demand (which I don't get from '57s - they tend to squeal due to lack of potting).

Jimmy is the guy who made me want to play the guitar He's right up there for me too. I hadn't quite gotten in to them yet when I started, for some reason when I was 15 back in 1976, I didn't like Robert Plant's voice! I don't know what I was thinking, but thankfully I got over that and started devo...

Re: Led Zep at Knebworth

outfits are a bit crap though they look as though they are acountants on a night off Jimmy does look like a duffous in that blue shirt and white pants too, doesn't he. Very "80's". He looks generally pretty unhealthy at that show. Quite a change from his peak in the dragon suits of 73-75 and even 7...

Yeah, I had a cross-country flight and back this week and i spent much of it watching the Zeppelin DVD. I'm impressed by how much better they were live than I gave them credit for. I love Jimmy, but I would always begrudgingly admit that he could be pretty damn sloppy live, especially after seeing t...
