Hmmm interesting i never knew that. I suppose I have listened to buds and mags too long. I own a 76 Fender precision. Sounds creamy but maybe it's cos they don't make em like they used to?
Hey Ric...So are the Tokai strats made in Japan better than the Koreans?...Whats your take?...You seem to have the knowledge. I certainly don't lol.
Actually yes, the Tokai's made in the 1978 to 1991 were better than some of the Fenders being made at the time. Those Tokai's were dead on copies of 1950s and 1960s Strat's and Tele's. They are also quite collectible today and command premium prices at guitar shows and from dealers when they turn up. I just sold a 1984 Tokai "Love Rock" model which was their Les Paul copy for $900.00 us. and it was as nice as any gibson Les Paul I ever owned. So if you run into one of those older Tokai's and a good price, BUY IT !!!! You wont be sorry.
