Does any of the Tokai ES series use SD pickups?

    They have a nice Tokai ES130 in my local store. They say it has Seymour Duncan Pickups! But they are not sure which ones...

    Can this be true?

    Are any of the ES130's equipped with SD pups, and if so, which SD pups?

    Thanks!

    No, they don't come with Duncan pickups. Could be changed but it's not stock.

    I've got a 2005 ES-120 that was purchased with WCR's in it. The original pickups don't have any markings on them. I think they're supposed to be Gotoh MKII's.

    I think the High end ES series come with Rolphs as do the Loverocks.

    The high, high end Tokai Guitars come with Seymour Duncan Seth Lovers as an option. Never heard of Rolphs being standard on Tokais. My '02 LS200 came stock with Gotoh MKII Pickups. Current catalog has Gotoh PAF MKII for all ES models.

    Yeah, the really high end models have had Rolphs and Duncans as standard but never on a ES-130.

    None I think but I'm not up-to-date with the current Tokai line. I know they have revised the line-up, A two year old ES-120 is now the same as ES-145 = same guitar but more expensive.
    Here's one with Rolphs from a couple of years back.
