I am not much of a Strat guy. The only one I own is my Tyler Variax, and I bought that primarily for the Variax functionality not its "stratness."


I have several MIJ LP's, including Tokais.

I did recently purchase a Greco Spacey Sounds.

Anyway, there has been a Tokai Mat Strat on my local Craigslist for an eon and a half. My understanding is that these are made of metal or something? I've seen various opinions on the Intert00bs but I'd like the official Tokai Forum opinion(s).

From what I have researched in closed sales, $450 seems pretty reasonable but I am not aware of model differences within the Mat Milieu (tm) that might account for price variance, and to what extent it would vary.

I thought it was the Talbo that had some metal?

I've seen that Mat for the eon it's been posted, but I don't know much about them either. Go check it out and let us know, I'm in Portland so too far for me unless it's something I know I want.

How do you like the Greco?

I'm remembering something about The Mat series being made of fiberglass.
