Great Bass Guitar!!By: AlanB on 7 April 2022I bought this guitar a few weeks ago...I was browsing for a few weeks before I bought a bass looking for one that's the best for the money. The Squiers started at a similar price for the Affinity.... I was unsure whether or not to get this one because of the weird wood I had never heard of for the fretboard. That wood is good...It's like a solid dark very similar to rosewood and very nice and dark and smooth to play and solid..I feel it's better than laurel and even better than the cheap version of rosewood used on older squiers of a similar price point..it's all good. The Tuners all function well and the volume and tone controls all do the trick. The machine heads are quality. I was a little unsure about buying a Tokai. I have a fender 6 string normal guitar but I couldn't afford a MIM fender so it was either an squier affinity or this. It's a quality instrument and I have no buyers remorse getting it at all and are completely happy with my purchase...it was set up properly and ready to play. The neck is comfortable to play a nice C shape and the frets were all done really well with no ends being uncomfortable when you play(totally smooth and no rough edges) along with a nice slidey perfectly done nice and smooth transition from fretbord to maple where your hand slides at the top. When I first got a relict instrument I was a bit skeptical. but after I put a camo grey and white strap on it it looks totally Punk Rock ha it looks good which is perfect for the kind of alternative music I play...It plays really well and an instrument at that price point I feel I made a good decision over a squier. The guys at Pony music were more than helpful in completing the purchase. I'm really happy with it. You won't be disappointed if you buy one of these over a squier. Thanks :) Check out the Tokai website...they make some quality guitars....At the end of the day it's not about a prestigious badge on the headstock. They make quality kit...You could use this guitar to gig with which for mid $500 or so is really good. You would feel like a stooge gigging with a squier affinity. Very Happy with it!! So Thanks!
