Thank you brokentoes!!!

Longstanding (in good standing) member of a few other forums, however getting a tokai meant I had to join in here!

This one has been one of my 'Great White Buffalo' guitars and couldn't be happier. One question i will post up is the neck joint... the cavity is routed for a long tenon, but it has a '59 V type neck joint instead... has to be a story there.

My new tokai... first, however unlikely it is the last.

Yes Wulfman... that is it!!!

I need to find another now... am a bit OCD about owning 2 of the same guitars. I have 4 instances of a matching set of some rare or unusual guitars.

Thanks Wulfman... GAS ignited!

I should note that mine is a 2002 with one piece mahog back vs the 2-piece seems to be on the new ones. Not sure any other differences.

Guess i dont need to post a NGD... done and done i would say :-)
