    hmm

    The chrome one looks kind of cool.

    The pickup is interesting though.

    The Tokai B 135 Talbo [with nickel plated finish] is SERIOUSLY one of the best instruments I have played, I was just too stupid to pick it up in Toronto while I had the chance. Jazz-like neck, strong smooth pickup, well balanced, very consistent sound from all strings. Personally, I love the look too. Played through an Ashdown
    EVO 500 combo, I had a constant stream of people asking me what it was, loving the sounds!
     
  10. I've never tried or seen a Tokai Bass, but i do own a Tokai SG Copy, and it sounds almost as good as a real Gibson SG standard. All that for 300 bucks! Go Tokai!
     
  11. I wonder how heavy it is :meh:

    Not heavy. Roughly the weight of a Stingray, slightly less in fact. Balance was sweet. The body actually heated up as I played it...

    I got my credit card ready.. Where can we find them for purchase? It would look awsome on my wall.
     
  17. :D
    Isn't that what we're all looking for in a bass?
    I kind of like it though.
