yeah the really highest end tokais (and navigator and the like) have a spec that's arguably better than a cs gibson- brazilian rosewood, handwound pickups and mojo tone caps etc. etc..

whether they're actually better guitars, though, I dunno. I haven't tried them. And a good spec on paper doesn't always equal a good guitar (though of course it doesn't necessarily equal a bad one, either).

no but i liked the increased odds when tokai's (or fujigen, or bacchus, or edwards etc) best luthiers are putting it together.
