i know it's not perfect , adjusting a truss rod , setting up a trem etc are an art form in themselves , but hell it's a Tokai getting some recognition at last I've waited years for something like this since i bought my BLOCK 84 years ago , Hurrah !!

It was great to have a bit of background on it, and the so-called lawsuit era in general as well. I wasn't expecting them to say anything other than how it was a strat clone.

Great teamwork there guys , providing links etc
it was a god prog wasn't it ? i get fed up at gigs when people say to me
" oh It's a copy" ….when we all know Tokais are very often better than
Fender and Gibson .
PS i never new there were Japanese screwdrivers !!
i'll go and take my anorak off now
best
Jockai the noo !!
