Don't be fooled by the pointy headstock, this is a circa 1987 Custom imported from Japan, one of 100 made. Gold hardware is beautifully faded by now, as is the binding. Excellent and comfortable C neck. It's a solid Northern ash beast, though, which is mildly painful for ageing back's like mine. I had it rewired with CTS, etc, and had an Electrosocket fitted. Plenty of life in the frets which have been dressed. A very fine Tokai indeed. Couple of minor dings and a deeper-than-usual scratch in the scratchplate which you'll see in the pics.

I'm looking for ?450 plus delivery. No case but it'll be wrapped up good and proper in a box. I'd prefer a UK sale but further afield will be considered.

Cheers,

Andy.

No interest from the 'we hate the pointy headed Tokai' snobs, then.

Anyhow...it's up on eBay as of 8pm tonight with no reserve.

The subtle Blingmeister Purplecaster Custom Deluxe Custom Special Deluxe!



Sounds and plays as good as it looks, too, like just about every Tokai I've played. I'm just not a Tele player, though, so in its case it sits forlornly.
