    Just spent the last hour or so reading and drooling over these fantastic guitars in this thread, absolutely amazing work to the guy behind them, I can only dream of ever owning something as beautiful as these guitars, I have to make do with my MIJ Tokai LS80Q from 04.

    Hi guys

    corr what a thread, these guitars are insane! I'm afraid I am going to be that guy, but are these guitars still being made? I appreciate that names are kept under tabs and that's fine

    cheers!

    look at that! The grad scheme I'm about to start offers a large interest free loan, I think watching these threads will make me end up taking the loan and spending it on one of these!

    You cannot get OTPG PU's anymore..............only second hand now. :)

    There are a multitude of great options available for PU's............& you do not have to spend USD800 - 1,200 to buy them.

    OX4, Rewind, Wizz, ECP, Throbak, Tyson Tone etc. etc.

    Don't get hung up on all the hype. Use your ears.

    :cheers2:

    Thanks :) haha you're right! I always need a kick up the arse when it comes to studying, never thought I'd find it on an LP forum :lol:

    however, the guy in question does take on builds still...right? I hear he's in the Midlands, which is where I'm studying, would be a real shame to not explore that avenue now ;)

    I don't know I'm afraid. It's a 2001-2002 guitar, and could be for sale in the near future.

    Always good to see another. This one is only a couple of weeks old... yet another outstanding instrument from two licks.
