Great read, and many thanks for sharing! Looking forwad to that post about guitar shopping.

Btw, I noticed that the Love Rock on this pic has a three screw trc. That would make it a non MIJ guitar, or..?

Distributors have a choice, direct from China or through the Japan factory for an additional 15% up-charge.

That was a great read and very informative!

It comes across that Tokai is a real and down to earth company that actually listens to their customers.

Many thanks! :)

Thanks for your comment BrianGT. As a family business started in 1947 I think they really appreciate the feedback from customers. I will try and get the guitar shopping in Tokyo article completed in the next month.

As a post script I found these shots of the original 80's brass knobs fitted to my snow white special edition with brass Fender scratchplate. I think it looks spot on!

Where can I buy the gold pickguards?

I need to send a few to Tokai for an order they're doing for me.
