2019 Tokai Japan ATE-106B Ocean Turquoise Metallic & new hard case




Tokai Japan really do make a superb guitar & I really rate all of the Tokais I have imported. Fender Japan used their factory to make their guitars from the late 90s until about 10 years ago. Made  in 2019, I suspect that this guitar may have been a shop demo model as it arrived with cellophane covers still on the pickguard and the pickups & no real evidence of any use. 

Being a Japanese Tokai, the build quality is superb & the Fretboard radius, at 9.5" (240mm) is flatter, and for me, much more playable than the usual 7.25" vintage radius which can choke out on bends. Really, really like this guitar & I know it won't be around for long.

Here's some blurb & specs I found on line:

Tokai AST-106 B is a beauty of a guitar from Tokai Japan. The guitar features a two piece Alder body with one piece Maple neck and rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets. This AST-106B is also equipped with vintage style Mk 3 single coil pickups and high quality parts. Finished in Ocean Turquoise Metallic

Hard Case

As said many times, all my guitars come shipped in a new black hard case which is included in the price. I find this is the safest way to avoid damage in transit. This case can be upgraded to a very nice tweed one but these are an additional £12 each at present.Please contact me before purchasing if you would like this. Alternatively, if you are collecting the guitar and, like some buyers have cases coming out of their ears, that's no problem, I'll adjust the price (usually around a £30 discount) and I can usually find you an old gigbag to take the guitar away in. The only hard and fast rule I have is that i won't ship a guitar in a gigbag

If you are further interested in this guitar, you can either email me with any queries & I'll do my best to get back to you within 24 hours.

Or, you can buy easily and safely using the PayPal "buy now" button. Don't forget to select the right option using the drop down menu on price, i.e. Collection, UK shipping or EU shipping. If in doubt, please email me first as Highlands & Islands can sometimes be a little dearer for shipping
