Contact Tokai, not too sure about the Jacaranda as i heard it is getting hard to get and even harder to export..

"THE RISING FORCE".....You are obviously a great fan of Great Yngwie Malmsteen and are you really one?? And you aren't actually Yngwie no way right? I know he lives in USA, somewhere in Florida.....has many Fender Japan guitars too along with the American ones.....His newest acoustic album is excellent I heard......Joe.

yeah yngwie is one of my guitar idols along with petrucci, govan, SRV, and among many others..I think none of them plays or own a tokai love rock..i own few vintage greco lp copies and im very happy owning MIJ guitars and i think the quality is superb..i once saw and played a 1982 tokai love rock back in the philippines and I fell in love with it, Ive had searched every surplus shop in the philippines and I did not find any tokai available.since its very hard to find vintage tokais in good condition, my only option is to have a custom order tokai love rock..I dont know if they will put Stainless Steel frets on their guitars, but thats the way i want it to be, cuz i dont wanna be refretting it every five years..6 months wait is no big deal, as long as you are sure that the guitar you are waiting for is worth the wait..TOKAI LOVE ROCK the best..
