2020 Tokai Japan ATE-124B/G Breezysound Yellow Sunburst & New Hard Case
£749.00 + shipping
Here's another fabulous Breezysound fromTokai Japan. They 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 90's until about 10 years ago. Made in 2020, this is in excellent condition with just a couple of tiny dents on the side and some playing marks.
Being a Japanese Tokai, 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. I really rate this guitar & I know it won't be around for long. I read online that this is a non-catalogue model and there are only a few around. I can't verify that but there aren't many places in the UK that you can buy a Japanese Tokai these days
Regarding the model numbers on these Japanese Tokais, basically the higher the number is, the better the model. The number relates to the price in 000's of Japanese Yen. This is towards the top of the range, the only higher number models are those made from Rosewood & those with a Bigsby tremolo.
The letters "B" & "G" show that this guitar has a bound body and gold hardwear.
Here's some blurb & specs I found on line:

Comes with new Thomann/Gear4Music Black 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. 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 £50 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 quickly and safely using the PayPal "buy now" button and I will ship to most UK addresses the next working day. Highlands and Islands can be slightly dearer but I'll keep the cost as low as I can.
I can accept credit card payments by phone and will also offer a small discount to purchasers using bank transfer payments.
Overseas customers are very welcome but please email me first for shipping quotes.
