"Tokai USA Custom Guitars, an authorized distributor of Tokai Japan, Introduces the "Stephie Blue"

The Stephie Blue is a double-bound version of the 1962 Telecaster. We've spent 40 hours tuning to include the following features:

Babicz full contact chrome bridge with fully adjustable saddles.
22 medium-jumbo frets
Bare Knuckle "Brown Sugar" pickups
Matched CTS pots, made in USA
Switchcraft Jack
Vintage cloth wiring
Rosewood Fretboard
All work was performed by a professional Luthier in Tucson, Arizona, USA.
D'addario 10 gauge strings.
Deluxe Black Fender-style case.

We know you will be highly pleased with the results of your purchase. This is the guitar you've been looking for with the flexibility to twang or rock with Metallica. We hope to have a demonstration video up soon."

I think they're only doing Fender style guitars. There was a post a few months ago about this, possibly from the guy who's doing the work.

There's a website but can't make out the language


http://www.tokaiusa.com/


"Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. As a lion, adipiscing nec Nulla eget Vestibulum libero fringilla. Yes or pure alcohol. Morbi risus sollicitudin at first-time cruisers. Clinical Vestibulum ante ipsum primis in the throat of mourning and avenging Cares have made their bed; Yes, but Tincidunt bow. In quis ante sapien, but television is euismod eget. Maecenas and fear-oriented, but the mass of chocolate, the gate is. The latest to soft son. Cras id vulputate pure, and the contents.

Integer condimentum of computer or what ever. But that fear is great. Morbi ultrices magna id euismod hendrerit. Montes real estate hatred, the fear of the deposit slip. But it will need sollicitudin est, but the layer of life. Clinical photography financing sterilized. Integer soft hendrerit. It's either for real estate. Integer customers and urna vitae official website."

WTF?
