hello folks I am from the Uk & wanted some help on picking the right guitar I am a bedroom strummer I like blues & some rock I like the stones & the eagles etc, I have a prs santana that i am pleased with but would like to get another guitar (as most people do..lol) I have about £300 to spend. In my local store i have seen 2 guitars that I liked the look of (I havent tried them yet) one was a epiphone firebird & the other was a tokai copy of a rickenbacker . It was their shapes that attracted me and as i am quite new to guitars I wanted some feed back from you guys as to which guitar you would choose ? ie build quality & tones etc. I dont intend to ever gig it & it will be used mostly for chord work . I hope you can help & if you can suggest any other models that i should consider then that would be great...thanks
it's probably much of a muchness if you're talking about korean/chinese tokais (though the tokais might be a little better value). if you can stretch to a japanese tokai, though, that's a different story (might have to go second-hand).
thanks for that
only other thing is to make sure you try similar models of each- there's not much point in comparing a tokai ricky copy to an epi firebird... there's a tokai model of the firebird too (it's not japanese, unfortunately).
