Hey, guys.

new to the forum here.
i just picked up a new chinese Tokai (serial number beginning in CN) and i have a few questions about the construction of these before i get around to researching part upgrades (if any), etc.

- i think i read somewhere that they used basswood/maple bodies + maple necks on these. can anyone confirm this?

- if i wanted to replace the bridge/tail piece, what dimensions/brands would i need to adhere to?

i've already upgraded the switch, pots and caps just for piece of mind.

any insight, guys?
thanks in advance.

Can't you just measure the bridge and tailpiece yourself ??? You'll need metric sized replacements though for sure when it comes to the studs etc. I'm sure gotoh makes something that would be interchangeable but i've never done it myself. Good luck.
