Hi Gary,
yes, they do. They are "smaller" at the bottom end and are just a tad shorter.

Huh. I can't seem to find them. But it doesn't really matter now.

Are there different versions of the ES130?. Because mine has a Gibbie-esque headstock.



Besides the little bump in the middle of the HS, that's the only difference that I know of. The ones exported to the UK will have the little bump where as the Tokais not intended for export will be a true, open book style Gibson. I think it has something to do with the Gibson/Tokai lawsuits. Where did you get yours from?

Nice HS rgrafend. I wish my HS was like that. That's the only little stint I have with mine. But I'm over it now.

Hi Gary! That's the only difference. Gibson was able to copyright their "open book" some time ago.

I got mine from Japan of course. I used to work for one of their majors.

Cheers. Rup

So the 'Made in Japan' sticker is legit? I thought the MIJ stuff had an impressed serial number and that the MIK stuff got the sticker.

Hi Gary and congratulations! Very beautiful flames on yours!

Just one comment on the TRC: the difference between Tokai drillholes and Gibsons is as you mention.

However, if you order the "old stock" bell TRC from StewMac it would be "just" right.

Cheers. Rup


Let me get this straight, you can order a cover that looks like a Gibson one that will fit without drilling?

If thats correct can you link me to one please mate, this could be the best news in a while!

The serial#, year and model etc. All of that info. is on the interior label inside the F-hole cavity. I think this only applies to the ES series though. If they used to emboss the back of the necks like LS's, I'm not sure when Tokai decided to change this. I'm sure someone else will enlighten us with a little Tokai history.

I really like the combination of that gorgeous flaming and the control display similar to my SG (including the orange switchtip). Actually, I also noticed the "reversed neck-pup".

Congrats to a beautiful ES, 12guitdown. Now I got a GAS at one of these also, dammit (wouldn't have the need for it musicwise, but just to look at it..)!

Anyone reckon that that would fit a standard tokai es135 without altering the holes?
