- WIZZ pickups: price € 260 (new price $ 425). The pickups have a 7.73K and 8.26K measurement. This set came back three years at a Historic Reissue Les Paul together with the WIZZ box which almost fell apart. I don't have that box anymore. HOWEVER: not sure if they are WIZZ, because there is nothing where it says WIZZ on the pickup.

Few words from the winder:
"Here's a super rare set in the wild; long out of production, the 1959 wire Holy Grail LTD Pickups Set #2.
These were a very limited edition set and coincided with my 1958 wire sets, most likely never to be built again as the wire is just impossible to source. There's only a handful of them in existence and they sold out fast so this could be a once in a lifetime opportunity."
The best PAF reproduction pickups out there for your 50´s burst Les Paul project. The SLE-101 Plus is slightly overwound for more dominant mids and bite. Great for rocknroll! The most beautiful sounding cleans on this neck pickup ive ever heard and the bridge captures the true vintage vibes with ...
And the best luthier built Les Paul for the money!
Beautiful high end luthier built Ruokangas Unicorn.A Les Paul guitar doesnt get better than this. You are getting the quality, sound and playability of much more expensive instruments (Gil Yaron exc.) for a much more affordable price. I have owned historic series Gibsons R9,BB7 and some vintage g...
This is one rare cool guitar, Gibson les Paul aged by Nicholas Rivera, the work he has done is so amazing. Tbh its better than any Gibson custom shop. Its 58 Historic reissue.
This guitar has been aged very slowly, no rush and lots of patience, a year to be exact. In that time she has been fitted with the most accurate parts on the market, best parts from around the world, others are straight vintage parts from the 50s and 60s. The neck is big feels good though proper old school feel.
The neck is fat and resonant with a great feel and good grip bending, 11s feels like 9s. All electronics have been changed top grade CTS 550Kpots and hand fitted with 50s bumble bees tone matched to the amazing Paf Replicas from Wizz pickups. The fingerboard is amazing very dark, fresh very good shape. No breaks

Howdy! Selling my lovely Ophelia due to a tremendous GAS attack on a guitar I've been searching for years and is now at reach. Therefore, something has to go. Later down the road I'll be looking for another J-200 for sure, Gibson jumbos are just unbeatable. This is 1995 J-200 in a fantastic...
Up for sale my main acoustic guitar. It is a '76 made CE-1000, a Martin D28 replica from the second year Tokai launched CE (Cat's Eye) series, hence a lower production than later years. Yamauchi label signed as it should be.
This guitar has a quality solid spruce top with a lot of "espejuelo" (as spanish greatest guitarreros called bearclaw. According to spanish guitar tradition, classic and flamenco guitars of quality had to have that small waves which guaranteed a good sounding guitar. It seems Tokai knew this luthery secret too ,because this guitar is plenty of it. Neck is made of beatifull mahogany with a carefully chosed ebony board. SIdes are old times rosewood made.
High action as I like at this time. Original blackTokai Martin replica case included.
In summary, a quality guitar from a great era.
Following some pics....
I am asking 1.500 euro
Only trade accepted: Old 1980-83 Tokai ES-100/150 in good condition or any ES-335, natural finish preferred.
