A Tribute To Tokai…

I don’t blame you if you burst up laughing upon hearing the name ‘Tokai’, because most of my friends do when they heard it the first time. But in all seriousness, the one brand which I think deserved it’s credits and deserved to be known world-wide fot it’s finest quality in their guitars, well, have not really received it’s recognition…

 To those in the dark, Tokai Gakki Company Ltd. is a Japanese guitar manufacturer which started making and producing guitars in Japan(duh!) since 1947. What is so amazing about them is that they start off as a ‘copy-model’ manufacturer, as in taking other guitar models from other rivals and coming out with a similar model that’s cheaper. The amazing part is that, it’s widely known that these guys had actually surpassed the original guitar companies in terms of qualities and overall sound of the guitar.  I own a Tokai Love Rock Series 75Q model, and I must say, it really does sound, look like the original ones, might even be better.

To know more, just go Wiki it. Enough said… To all Tokai guitar owners, cheers to you guys.
