Thanks for that. I wasn't aware that music stores in Japan had large manufacturers produce own-branded instruments like this. That's very interesting.

With this being the case, would you have any idea what current Tokai spec model this particular guitar would be on par with?

Cheers

LS1000s on Ebay UK

At ?1075 each, are these LS1000 models worth it?

Any opinions on how they compare to a Gibson Les Paul Standard?

This guitar popped up on Ebay a couple of weeks ago and promptly 'sold'. At the time, I was kicking myself for not buying it. The instrument is, in all likelihood, an honest springy sound. However, the fact that it is still for sale would make me think twice. When you try it out, ask the shop why it...

Thanks for your advice Cali Girl,

I'm starting to feel like this is going to be another quest to find a 'golden ticket' :o :roll:

I'll take my time to see what crops up and, in the meantime, I'll try to do more homework on the models Tokai produced.

Thanks Again. Tony

Gabe, Jonah & Marcus,

Many thanks for casting your eyes over this one for me. I really appreciate your help and advice.

I'm still familiarising myself with Springy Sounds, so I think I'll wait a while longer before committing to buy one.

Thanks Again

Tony

Springy Sound ST80 or above Rosewood Board Question

I?m currently thinking about trying to find a Springy Sound ST80 or above. From looking at previous posts on the forum, they seem to have great reviews relating to both build and tone. However, I?ve only recently sold a USA Strat Plus because I wasn?t keen on the maple neck. So, my question is: does...

USA Fender Strat Plus

I'm selling my USA Strat Plus in near pristine condition, because I've decided I prefer LPs and I have a new Tokai currently heading my way. I've added a listing on the bay, but I'm open to reasonable offers from forum members. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/120961868766?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid...
