Sorry, my "english spoken" is very bad.

I have the chance to buy a Tokai (no 7) Breezysound in natural blonde with rosewood fingerboard, and headstock like Fender. Serial number is 018057. It is very new (2 or 3 years). Can this guitar be as good as the 80's?.
Thank you.

Sure can as they are still made in the same factory with most of the same craftsman. I got to play the new Love Rocks this week and they are fantastic.

It makes your feet hurt really, really bad.

All kidding aside it was a great experience. I met Brad Gillis and a couple of other really nice folks including Mike Palermo of Mike's Music. The new Tokai Love Rocks are incredible. Even had an old product manager of the Epiphone LP's come to the booth and say how glad he was that Tokai was back and that the Love Rocks were always far superior to the Epiphones.

The reaction was "WOW Tokai's back" from almost everyone that stopped by the booth.

Didn't see anything really new or surprising. Most of the new stuff centered around recording control surfaces and Chinese mics.
