    Gimme Your Top 5....

    Jimi Hendrix Barrie Cadogan Peter Green Alain Johannes Jack White To me, a great guitarist can only be a great guitarist if he's a great composer. Sure, some virtuosity doesn't hurt, but if a guitarist isn't able to come up with truly compelling compositions, then what's really left? I find...

    got offered a Blade strat or a Tokai breezysound 1984 japan tele, any advice?

    Hi Dave, I've owned 3 vintage Tokai Strats (Springy sounds and a Silver Star), and all were great guitars for the money. They are very much vintage spec guitars, begin reissues of Fender Stratocasters from the 50's, 60's and 70's. The earliest Tokai reissues are quite valuable and rightfully...

    Thanks! I'm gonna try to get my hands on some original tuners. I've been doubting about switching to a mint guard even though this is the original. After quite some thought I recently bought an original AVRI tortoise pickguard though.. I'm hoping it will look nice

    Thanks so much for all the information and providing me with the link. I couldn't find these myself on Reverb while this is exactly what I'm looking for! I just contacted the seller about shipping to the Netherlands. The pickups look great as well, but I'm not in a hurry to change pickups that...

    I guess that could be the case, although I’m not sure. I’m gonna open up the tuners tomorrow to see what’s going on with the posts. I’ll keep you ‘posted’ :p

    Wow, that's great to know! Thank you so much for your reply. That would explain a lot. Do you also think it's 'normal' that the pots would be dated '87? I'll definitely try to get my hand on those tuners. I cannot seem to find them myself on Reverb though. Would it be possible to send me link...

    Thanks for these pictures Nate! Your guitar looks very similar to mine apart from the fact that yours is 50's reissue of course. It seems that the green bit in the neck pocket functions as a shim in your guitar. That's interesting. It was only after I installed a shim on my guitar that it really...

    Thanks for your reply! That could be an interesting explanation. It would also explain why I've seem some others with similar issues. Those were all heavily played guitars.

    Thanks Ebidis! I will certainly keep playing this guitar. Against all odds, this became my number one. It's just that I'm interested in it's history.

    1986 AVRI 62 Stratocaster questions

    Hi everyone, I've consulted this forum quite a bit in the past as there seems to be some great in-depth knowledge around here. Especially when I purchased a Strat a couple of years ago that was advertised as a 1986 Fender Stratocaster 62 AVRI with non original (Lollar) pickups. It needed quite...
