I played an "older" tokai strat - no idea how old - it was the only "strat" in the shop when I bought my amp - I hated the neck - Personal preference and all that, but I'd recommend trying one before parting with any cash!

i tried a couple recently, they're very nice. Only reason i didn't buy it is that (a) the first shop lied to me that it was new when it was in fact second hand so they lost my business (b) the other one was in a colour i loathe (gold! ) and (c) i'm not sold on 21 frets.

But yeah, sweet. Absolutely a million times better than a MIM strat, highway one etc. Similar in quality, if not better, to MIA strat, though it's not a straight comparison, as the MIA is a more modern strat, while those tokais (depending on model of course, i'm going by the ones I've tried) are vintage 50's-style strats.

EDIT: ^ i agree about personal preference and trying it first. I loved the neck, but that's just me. Also, I have no idea how old the ones I tried were.
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

I had one and it played beautifully. Mine had a more rounded fretboard which made it harder
to play at first(I don't know if their all like that). I had a hell of a time playing bar Chords at first. But it was a great guitar.
