Hi there,

I have a Black Korean Tokai Les Paul Custom with gold hardware and want to change the tune-o-matic bridge for a good quality one.

Has anyone replaced their bridge before and if so what are the recommended ones?

I was trying to find out where to buy a tonepros bridge in the UK but can't seem to find anyone who sells them.

Any help from you guys would be much appreciated.

Tonepros can be bought from the distributors at http://www.mirep.co.uk/.

Give them a call.

You can order them pretty easily from stew mac in the US too.

I have the tonepro set and it's a great replacement unit.

Remember Tokai stock hardware is Gotoh(metric size) as opposite to Gibson hardware(imperial size).If you search on this forum you'll find a thread talking about it.

I had the same problem, but I had the posts replaced. I don't think that would be an issue with the MIK models as they have the large, screw top posts.

for what it's worth, I replaced the bridge on my MIK Goldtop with a Gibson ABR-1 ... just opened up the holes on a pedestal drill. Mind you, I also binned the tuners (replaced with a 20 year old set of Grovers I had) and the 0.033 caps and replaced them with 0.022 ones. Whole world of tone difference, and it holds tune for more than 5 minutes.
