Tokai 200S Hummingbird

1968

Made in Japan

TOKAI GAKKI

Very good condition. Plays and sounds great.  Smaller frets. Skinny neck. 1-5/8" width at nut. Great low action. No buzz. 

Very deep dark navy blue with a bit of sparkle. Looks black at certain angles and under some lighting conditions.

The action is low and very playable, the frets are in good condition vintage-style.

The 2 single-coil pickups sound great and give a nice range of sounds.


Cool multi-piece maple neck with slender D-profile. Rosewood fretboard with slender frets that are in good shape. 25 1/2" scale. Neck is 1 5/8" near the nut. 

Tuners work well, and the vibrato arm performs as it should - the guitar stays in tune and is easy to operate. 

The only issue is with the bass-side rhythm circuit and volume/tone controls.  The Jaguar/Jazzmaster-style rhythm circuit switch and associated roller pots are not working. Everything else works and sounds great - normal pickup selector (Bridge, Bridge/Neck, Neck) & the volume/tone controls all operate correctly.  When the rhythm circuit is switched on, the signal from the neck pickup becomes weak. Outside of this, both pickups in the normal pickup-selector configuration are fine and loud.


Will send via insured Reverb shipping. Guitar will be protected in a non-original hardshell case. Please ask any questions and feel free to make an offer on this fine vintage instrument. Thank you for looking!
