1. The Gear Page is run by musicians for musicians. We listen, we learn and if we misstep we are not afraid to do the right thing. We proposed some changes to the Emporiums. Based on feedback from members, we have decided to not go ahead with those changes. However, it has also highlighted that we need some community input into what is working and what is not working for members here. Primarily focused on the Emporiums, we'd like input on your thoughts about TGP and how things work in the Emporiums for you and how you'd improve them. The discussion thread on the is here!

    Here's my Tokai LS-65 next to my Tokai LS-80 Quilt. Although they are not solid tops, they are still very nice to behold..
    Enjoy!

    Also a decent veneer top. The other thing that Tokai is great at is grain-matching on the backs.
