Greetings Tokai fans,

Michael from Guitarist mag in the UK here. The mag will soon be running a feature on "lawsuit" guitars of years gone by and we are particularly seeking photos of early, pre-1985 Tokais. We figured a Tokai web forum might be a good place to start!

Because of the difference in paper printing and websites, web grabs are no good to us. Digital is perfect though, but we need 300dpi resolution. Naturally, we're particularly interested in Springy Sound or Les Paul Reborn images. We can't organise fees, but we'll credit all those who send us a pic in the mag and we'll send a copy of the mag to anyone whose shots we use. And, of course, you'll have our unending gratitude. Straight-on, detail or arty shots can be sent to:
guitarist@futurenet.co.uk
This is a genuine request: much thanks to anyone who can help!

Forgive me ignorance but what is 300dpi equivalent to in resolution? I have lots of pics of my reborn that are 1024 x 768 and I have double that as well

dpi = dots per inch, while the values you mention is the absolute size of a picture in pixels.

ok chris... see the 'show us yr tokai' thread.

Mine are in there somewhere.

For our friend here I also sent some pictures of the original hang tags that came with mine. Don't know if that will be useful or not.

I sent i think 8 pics in all but I have more where that came from.

Hi all,

We're on sale on February 22 in the UK; a few days after in mainland Europe, and about a month later in the USA! The mag doesn't have a website at the moment, regrettably. A new one is in development but that didn't stop our creaky old one being pulled.

You can read a little more about our current issue here:

http://www.myfavouritemagazines.co.uk/store/displayitem.asp?sid=440&id=4307&custid=13@01@200648138@882892267

Thanks to everyone for their help...

Michael Leonard, Guitarist
