Thinking of a PRS - am I mad?

I am thinking of getting a PRS and wondered if any members have experience of them and how they relate to Tokai in terms of comfort, build quality and tone. I am swaying towards a single cut and am curious how it might compare to my Loverock. Belfast has next to no major PRS retailers, so I'm likely...

The switch is intermittent. Its ok in the neck position. In the middle position I usually only have only the neck pickup and for the bridge pickup, the volume is significantly lower (and thinner - like a single coil) than it should be. Occasionally, everything works as it should (if I jiggle it arou...

LS 320 replacement switch query

Hi,

I need to replace the pickup selector switch on my 1999 LS 320.

If anyone could offer me some advice on the best make/model to go for, I would be very grateful.

Cheers

There are many places to find MIJ guitars (ebay, Yahoo auctions, other forums, etc). You could be lucky and the perfect guitar for you might pop up quite quickly. However, its more likely that it will take some time for the right instrument to become available. I recently bought a Tokai from Mark an...

Welcome Maystar. Is it a new or secondhand guitar you are after? If it's a secondhand model, I think you will struggle to find something on par with a Gibson historic. If you want to buy new, there are music stores in Germany and Spain as well as the UK. Problem with the UK models is that they have ...

Now you've got my attention. This firm are literally on my doorstep. Looks like my plans for a pair of DiMarzio 36ths are on hold! :wink:

On further checking, it turns out my in-laws live 2 miles away from Deacci. Next time, it might JUST be worth visiting them. :evil:

Advice on Model straight from Japan

Hi, I am looking into getting an MIJ Tokai straight from Japan, as higher end models within the EU are not overly common. I saw the guitar in the link below, but I'm wondering where this might be within the ovarall Tokai range (eg between LS160 and Ls260)? If anyone with an experienced eye can provi...

Is Jimmy worth it?

I saw this on a Japanese store's website. Not too many around by the looks of it, but at ?3075 it can hardly be worth it - can it?

Thanks Cliff - if you were local, I'd be after some of what you've recently had for sale, although can I ask why you've decided to sell your MIJs? Villager - I would love to make a purchase from you, but I'm after something younger than your beautiful vintage instruments. Any Tokai/Navigators from t...
