i've always wanted a 335 with block inlays, but the gibsons are so damn expensive, and i feel the tokai's may be just as good.

i was wondering which model i should be looking for?

pics would be appreciated, so hold me over until i can get one haha.

Hi,
You are after an ES135. I have just sold my tobacco sunburst one and I have to say it was the best semi I've ever played. I only got rid of it as I wanted another Love Rock and had to cull the collection a little. I heartily recommend it.
They also do it in cherry if you don't fancy tobacco sunburst, your only problem is finding one but well worth waiting for. There's a forum member playing one on youtube if you want to have a look, just do a search for Tokai ES135 and you should find it.

I'm sure some of the more knowlegable forum members know if the model number has changed but it was an ES135 when I purchased.

Hope this helps a bit.

i took a look at it seems it has changed to the ES150

does tokai make higher end block inlay 335's?

i see the es175 has upgraded woods and electronics but is only a dot neck. do they take custom orders for a 175 with block neck?

What country are you in, there's bound to be a Tokai specialist who can help you out. I know a little about the different models but nowhere near as much as a lot of the other forum members.
