Tokai is world famous for its popular and superior range of Japanese made guitars. This SG Custom embodies the finest Tokai features in keeping with the original classic design, boasting superior attention to detail and high quality materials.
The Tokai from around 2008 embodies the Japanese craftsmanship tradition that brought this style of guitar to its heights in the 1980’s, and continues to keep Tokai’s ‘Love Rock’ legend alive. This is a superbly built instrument with superior components, hardware, and a deluxe vintage style finish.
It features a two-piece mahogany body, one-piece mahogany set neck with 18 degree headstock angle, rosewood fingerboard, and Tokai’s faithfully voiced PAF vintage Mk II humbucking pickups. It also has vintage Kluson style tuners with green tulip buttons, and a tune-o-matic style bridge with stopbar tailpiece.
This SG Custom has a classic Black Gloss finish, with beautiful gold hardware.
