Tokai Electric Guitars |
Vintage Quality & Tone, Without The Hefty Price!
electric guitars released by the Tokai company in the 70's & early 80's
represent the cream of the crop when discussing the Japanese replica guitars
designed after the Vintage Fender & Gibson models of the the 50's &
early 60's. Other companies such as Greco & Burny/Fernandes made some nice
guitars, but the Tokai electric guitars are something special. In fact these
great Japanese manufactured guitars are known as "lawsuit" guitars
because, as the story goes, around 1981 representatives of the Big American
guitar companies got a hold of some of these guitars & were so impressed
(and threatened) by the quality & playability that they threatened
litigation against the manufacturers.
in the car industry, the Japanese guitar manufacturer's work ethic &
attention to detail produced a product of equal or superior quality to its
Fender & Gibson counterparts. Competition drove & continues to drive
the Japanese market to produce higher quality electric guitars at lower prices.
In the US,
Fender & Gibson have a corner on their respective markets, have no competition
to drive them to improve, & rely on the nostalgia of their name to sell an
average product at a hefty inflated price. Here in the states a well made
Fender or Gibson guitar will cost you $3000 & up, while many of these
Vintage 70's lawsuit era Tokai electric guitars can be had for well under $1500
If you are
looking for Vintage Gibson & Fender era craftsmanship, quality & tone,
without the 5 & 6 digit price tag, you'd be hard pressed to find a better
replacement than one of these lawsuit era Tokai electric guitars. They are
getting more & more valuable by the day & would make a wonderful &
very functional addition to your guitar collection, & are virtually assured
of appreciating as the years go by.
