Background of Tokai

Tokai started their lawsuit business in the 70's. Amongst all the lawsuit guitars, Tokai is the most widely known amongst all it's lawsuit counterparts. However it's fame is not because it is better in quality, but I feel it is because they were good at their marketing strategy. They are the only company that market their guitars aggressively beyond the Japanese borders whereas the other brands were meant mainly for the domestic market. 

What's in a Tokai?

Unlike all the other Japanese make, Tokai do not have their own pickups but uses Dimarzios on their LPs.
