Found a box with MAT necks!

Post by javelin70 » Sun Aug 11, 2002 2:09 pm

At a music store here in Sweden I found a box with about ten Tokai MAT (Most Advanced Technology) necks. These guitars are very rare, I've only seen one here in Sweden and I bought it about two years ago. Unfortunately the necks have been in that store for more than 10 years, they have some dings and also some scratches on the fingerboard. One was from '85, the rest was '86-, I bought two of them. One was a FRP (fiberglass reinforced plastic) neck (rosewood fingerboard) and the other one was a carbon fiber neck with an ebony fingerboard. Both these necks were in rather good condition. The frets on all the necks showed no wear at all.

I really would like to know where they came from, I guess I'll have to go back and talk to the approx. 80 year old owner of the store.

Hmm, I wonder where I can find a MAT body :D .

Hi Michael,

I am interested in one of the carbon necks.
Can you find out if he still has any more and how much he wants for it.
