Sound advice and I have to admit the passion you guys have for all things Tokai has rubbed off on me. Got some new strings today so I will give it another play. I have cleaned the neck today ( it was manky) and going to ad some pics to photobucket of neck without strings. I think the neck is the best bit of my guitar. I mentioned earlier I had been playing a Kramer and not to put too fine a point on it the difference in feel on the neck is major! The Tokai neck feels very natural and playing it seems a bit more intuative where as the Kramer feels bulky and bit sullen - I hope this makes sense!
Something else you said rung a bell - you said you were going to fit a neck with a rosewood fretboard to your guitar and I guess it is possible that this was what has happened to mine pre 85 and that would explain some of the discrepancies. I noticed the truss rod adjust does not match up 100% with cut out on the pickguard.......

Hi - I have posted pics on photobucket showing the rosewood fretboard with strings off. Boy did that Rosewood come up nice.


I just remebered on of my pals from school bought a Tokai telecaster a couple of years before I bought my Strat. I will have to give him a call - i cant remember what colour it was i think it was green. Will let you know if he still has it and of course get some info & pics for the archives. I am just guessing but the telecaster probably sold in far lower quantities that the strat.
Cheers
