2 wrongs don't make it right but 3 rights make a lefty!

It's the third neck replacement since 1991.

What is it with those Robins? I've only ever seen Americans play them, don't they get exported? I remember Jimmie Vaughan had a couple of them about 20 years ago, a single and a double neck. He brougt them both over for one UK tour in the 80s, and I've never seen him play one since.

I've always liked the look of the Robins....very "Tele-Bass" kinda vibe.
Chico...do you take EVERY guitar you own to a gig?
I guess that's better than trying to decide which 2 guitars to use as main and backup like I do

There is something quite funky about my Robin Ranger. As most of you know, the first mass produced Robins where made by Tokai. These Robin models had gold w/black Robin logo on the headstock (please someone correct me if I'm wrong). Some of these Tokai Robins still appear on ebay from time to time.

How is the feel of a Robin Ranger? A very vintage vibe. Not unlike a late 50's strat or Tele. The H/S/Tele S pickup configuration opens alot of doors tonewise. I can almost get away giging with the Ranger alone.

I do gig with 8 guitars on stage if the stage or playing area allows. It's pretty cool to have a decent amount of guitars onstage. Makes for great conversation during breaks. My guitars all serve as tools. No art pieces for me. I love Tokais...all the vibe...almost 1/3 of the money for my purchases.

Like the French with your wine and cuisine (not to mention beautiful women), we Americans are also deep with tradition and icons. Harley is just that. I will say that if I didn't have a Harley, I'd have 20 or so Nice Tokais.

I ride a Japanese Yamaha cruiser and have a stable full of Japanese guitars. But then, I've always had a non conformist streak in me. People laughed at me for buying my first Japanese guitar in 1976.

1976 was a really good year. Joe released Sandinista.

Coincidene? Doubt it....


However, we should really talk about this japanese bike.

Maybe we should start a thread on motorcycles, i'm sure a few of us could have some great stories to tell and some great bikes to talk about..
