    Several years ago I did something foolish; sold a Tokai SG MIJ with a huge neck that played beautifully because, are you ready for this, it was poly vs. lacquer. I sold it to get a nice MIJ Epiphone SG that had the “flat wide” D shaped neck because it was lacquer. Let me tell you, long after I'd forgotten the finish, the neck shape bugged me. I missed the big necked Tokai. So, when I spotted a similar one for sale, I bought it. Should get it next week, can't wait. I love big necks.

    ...I like big necks and I can not lie;
    it all started with a Japanese-made Tokai.....
    None of those "flat & wide" SG's have the size it takes to please;
    So keep those skinny gibbies and flat-fretted epi's outta my sight, please......
    :naughty:
    :cool:

    18ADB8E2-DCE8-4FA9-AF43-C6BAE83B9FF3.jpeg 2423ABD3-91D0-4EE3-9744-C132A7A5421F.jpeg 45183DBD-CF63-4970-8447-12FF0B4121FC.jpeg The strangest thing happened. This was advertised as a '90. When it arrived, it was an '03; the exact one I'd sold and then missed ~5 years ago. So, it came home to roost! The Tokai inlay material is beautiful, as is the rosewood board!

    I agree. Hard to tell which it is. Looks great

    2FA35EB2-5D2E-4C1B-91AE-00E4C3ED4A78.jpeg Honestly, it's both… In bright sunlight, it takes on a walnut hue. In room light, it's a dark cherry. Here's an indoor pic with incandescent lights.
