Tokai humbuckers-what do they look like with the cover off?

Post by -Alan- » Wed Aug 14, 2019 10:23 am

I have a spare pair of hum buckers off a MIJ Loverock early 2000s ( I think) vintage.

Thinking of fitting them into an Aria Explorer to replace the awful pups it came with. One problem is the Aria hardware is gold, and the Loverock pups are silver coloured.

I was wondering what they look like underneath the cover.

Can anybody point me towards some pics of naked Tokai humbuckers ?

Thanks villager. Tried that - I can the pickup with the pole pieces in it is black, but can't see the other one :(

Appreciate the tip on the gold pole pieces though. Will have a look to see if I can perhaps swop any of the trim from the old pups to the Tokai ones.
