    Really gotta appreciate the Japanese Craftsmanship

    After nearly a year with my Tokai LS136F, I am really appreciating the Japanese craftsmanship. The neck profile is so comfortable, the pots are already some nice 500k linear tapers, tidy wiring, nice shielded cavity, and has literally no cosmetic flaws. The only gripe I have would be the pickups...

    Greco SA-90 or Tokai ES100R

    Both have recently popped up on my local Craigslist. The main difference is a headstock break on the Tokai so I’m not quite sure if it'd be worth it or if I should rather go for the Greco. This is the Tokai

    EDIT: Been trying to insert a link to the actual listing. But apparently it was considered spam so this thread wouldn't post...figured I had to save the pics and paste 'em here.

    NGD 2010 Tokai Love Rock LS 105Q HDC

    So I haven't really been posting in these parts lately, as I'd gotten more or less all the MIJ LPs that I'd thought I'd wanted or needed (in addition to a couple of Gibbys, all but one of which wound up getting flipped) and been exploring the S-type side of things for a while. One of those...
