    Out of phase middle pickup on SG custom question

    Hello there. I have a great Tokai copy of a SG custom with three pickups. I hate set it up so each PU has an individual volume and I have a master tone. I put push/pull pots so I have a coil split on each PU as well. So far so good! However I was thinking of flipping the magnet in the middle PU...

    Tokai White SG Custom or fake? Great guitar either way...

    Sounds like a great guitar! I have not got any cash left now but my antennae are now up for Tokais. There was a really nice Les Paul on UK Gear page on Facebook the other day. Will have to start saving up!

    Tokai White SG Custom or fake? Great guitar either way...

    Yes I heard about the fake Canadian ones being because an importer couldn't get hold of them so he got a factory in Canada to make them? You really go down the rabbit hole when you start looking into the history of various model lines, suddenly it goes from "that is a cool playing guitar" to "oh...

    Great! I didn't think there would be a forum dedicated to Tokai, I should have Googled it myself. I will post on there on weekend and update this thread if I get any answers.

    Tokai White SG Custom or fake? Great guitar either way...

    Yeah I mean I am not too bothered about it's heritage as it looks and plays so well. Just interesting as it has a serial number but I don't know where to find the info to find it's history:) I read somewhere the Japanese models have 2 screws on the truss rod cover, Korean have 2 and fakes have...

    Tokai White SG Custom or fake? Great guitar either way...

    I have long been after an SG Custom 3 pickup copy. I will never be able to afford the real thing and while I toyed with the idea of customising a cheaper Gibson faded SG in the end I thought I would go for a copy. I was considering an Epiphone, I used to own one of their Les Pauls and it was a...

    3 pickup wiring options for my SG copy?

    @Dave Johnson Sorry a dumb question I am never sure about which you maybe able to help with. I opened it up and all the pickups look to be in phase. I have not set it up yet but with separate volume controls between the middle PU and the neck PU will there still be a certain amount of phase...

    3 pickup wiring options for my SG copy?

    Thanks very much I will check this out. There are a lot of good options to try. Out of interest are series/parallel a significantly different sound to coil splits? I was thinking of this but thought series/parallel was preferable as it would produce a Straty sound but still remain hum...

    3 pickup wiring options for my SG copy?

    I finally got hold of a 3 pickup SG, albeit a Tokai. It is a surprisingly great guitar for the money. I was thinking about various ways I could expand the range of tone I can get from the 3 pickups. At present it is 2 tone and 2 volume with the switch selecting neck, middle/bridge and bridge...
