Hi,
I recently bought a Greco version of one of these from one of our fellow forum members (thanks Lee !). It is exactly the same spec as the one you have pictured, except for being Cherry Red in colour. It is a truly excellent guitar, and I recommend Greco as being on an equal par with Tokai. So, this might give you another avenue to search in, there must be more of them about. I am personally looking for a Tokai TV Double Cut with 2 P90's and a wrapover, but they're like rocking horse doo-doo also. Good Luck.

Acoording to Guitar UK magazine ads,Tokai UK must have any in stock.Sometimes they order special models for themselves.I'm not a SG fan too much but this guitar seems amazing.I've recomended to chek to some people here in Spain.

Hi,
I have the original pics that Lee sent me. I can send them to you if you let me have your email address. I think Lee is an enthusiast/collector, with severe G.A.S like most of us here !!! (hope you dont mind me saying that, Lee !!)

Hi All,
The afore mentioned Greco SG is regrettably for sale if anyone is interested. I've really cocked up with my finances due to this G.A.S (I blame you lot, so does my missus) Pics here: http://nik5085.fotopic.net/c484796.html It really is a beauty, just looking to cover my costs on it, ?300.00 plus postage to anywhere, or pick up from Bham UK or meet half way.
Thanks

Hi guys....

I'm the owner of the TV yellow SG in the ebay link attached in one of your messages. I jumped on it as soon as I saw it and I don't regret it for a moment. I've never seen another Tokai like it - especially the TV finish.

Great feel, fit, finish and tone. It has a beefy neck and a razor thin body. The sustain of chords and single notes is incredible and amazingly, the intonation is perfect on the wrap around tailpiece.

The only thing I did to it was go to heavier strings (11's) and rub the neck down with some lemon oil and 0000 steel wool - it was unplayed and still a bit dry and dusty from it's newness.

If you should see one of these come available again, buy it!

True, but pricing is all relative. Considering the suggested UK retail in the advert of 599 Pounds Sterling (over $1000 in US dollars), I can sleep with what I paid for it.

It feels and plays every bit as nicely as it's Gibson cousins and is in my opinion a hands down winner over any of the Epi Elite guitars I've picked up - again at a cost that I can live with.

Having just attended the Dallas guitar show and seeing $30,000 ES 335's and Les Pauls, I look at pricing this way.....as long as the seller and the buyer walk away from the table happy with their respective deals, then it's a fair price. Was it pricey? Sure. Is it worth the price? Absolutely. Happy? You bet.
