i recently tested a tokai tbird and it sounded lovely. i was wondering if any one had tested both and found a difference between them and which one would be better in investing in.

The Tokai I played was a craptonne lighter than my old Epi and sounded just a hell of a lot better as well, none of that "mud" that the epis seem to cop a lot of crap for. Also another big selling point is the bridge. None of that terrible three-point crap just a normal old bass bridge. I'd go the Tokai if I had my time again.

EDIT: Oh and iirc the Tokai has a set-neck as opposed to the bolt on on the epi, It matters to some people but I couldn't care less between the two. Neck throughs all the way!
