Tokai 335 or Gibson 335

Go for a Tokai but don't buy the one in the link. It's way overpriced. I have owned a few Tokai 335's and they are definitely on par with the regular production Gibsons, and they play like butter.


I believe that Tokai guitar is owned by someone on the TGP. They are stellar guitars. That one may not be as overpriced as buckwild thinks since it has had some significant upgrades. The quality is every bit as good as a Gibson. The resale value holds fairly well but probably not in the same league as a Gibby.


If you find a great Gibson, it's a good thing. I couldn't find anything I liked in a Gibson. Heritage's are really good and great values. I just bought my Tokai ES-130 from buckwild (great seller, btw) and it is stupendous. He had upgraded the tailpiece and installed Gibson '57 Classic pickups. It's good to go, as they say.
