I know, I know, I know…
It’s been FAR TOO LONG. Time to get our arses into gear. Thanks to Rich who kept the ship afloat for a long while in my absence.
I’ve got lots of things I want to tell you guys about. New guitars and basses of my own, plus a couple of projects I’ve been working on.
Meanwhile I just want to bask in the gloriousness of this piece of 1960s Japanalia (is that even a word?) that is the Tokai Hummingbird. Yes, we’ve seen them before on this blog, but they look good enough to warrant another post.
This baby has a built-in distortion effect too… I’m guessing that’s the battery access on the side of the guitar near the output jack.
But it ain’t a cheapie. An eBay Buy It Now price of US $ 1,550.00 for this example illustrates just how popular these old Japanese guitars have become in recent years and how yesteryears oddities are now so supremely collectable.
