Tokai - Rebelrocker RG-43
Includes good quality bag! It's no secret that Tokai Gakki Japan make copies/clones of the most famous American guitars of the 20th Century. In the 1970's they were one of the major players in the so-called 'lawsuit' era, when Japan was making cheeky yet remarkably accurate copies of vintage Fender and Gibson guitars, whilst those companys were languishing under corporate ownership and cost-cutting exercises that had seen their appeal diminish.
Tokai turned their attention also to Rickenbacker, the American Electric Guitar pioneer, making remarkably accurate copies of their more iconic models, and RIC were not best pleased. To this day, it is very rare to see Rickenbacker copies in the United States where RIC rightfully guard their trademarks much more stringently that Fender of Gibson ever did.
These modern-day Tokai copies are found in proliferation through Europe and Japan, and thankfully so, as RIC, being essentially a low-volume boutique manufacturer, turn out comparatively few guitars per year and even fewer are made to export. This leaves the RIC lover in Australia very low of options. To buy brand new, if you can find someone who's importing them, will cost you in excess of $3000. Not a small spend. However, it has to be said, even from a regular player (and devotee) of Rickenbacker instruments, that these Tokai guitars are astonishingly close, aesthetically, sonically and from the perspective of sheer playability, and for a quarter of the price.
Branded 'RebelRocker' in Australia, due to the exceedingly cheeky European branding 'Rockinbetter' not being used here in Aus (can't think why...), these guitars represent a serious option for the lover of that signature RIC tone. Has to be heard to be believed.

WHAT HANK SAYS!
"Some guitarists think of the USA as the only source of quality electric guitars, and for the most part they are correct. However, there are many of us who remember the superb range of guitars designed and made by BURNS GUITARS, a British company.
Way back in 1963, Jim Burns, the founder of the Company, worked closely with myself and Bruce Welch of The Shadows to design a guitar which would have the style, sound, and playability we required. Together we developed the 'BURNS MARVIN' a fine guitar, which I played on record, stage and screen from 1964 thru to 1970 when, unfortunately, my guitars were stolen, never to be seen again, well not by me!
I am delighted that BURNS GUITARS are still in the business of making quality instruments, and in particular the new 'BURNS MARVIN.'
Playing this new "Marvin" brings back a host of memories; such as the recording of "The Rise and Fall of Flingel Bunt", together with many other Shadows tracks I recorded with my BURNS.
The new "BURNS MARVIN" plays superbly and I am very happy to be the proud owner of one of these fine guitars, it plays and sounds as good as my original.

Fender Pawn Shop Bass VI Electric Baritone
Like a standard guitar, but tuned an octave lower - with a tremolo and all kinds of pickup options!
Players continue to praise the Pawn Shop™ Series for evoking the more eccentric Fender creations of the mid-'60s to mid-'70s while delivering thoroughly modern sound and quality with a wealth of various Fender elements. New for 2013, the Pawn Shop Series introduces yet another pleasingly unconventional assortment of "guitars that never were but should have been," in which new models take the stage and long-vanished classics return in modern form.
The Pawn Shop™ Bass VI marks the revamped return of a historic Fender instrument, the seldom-seen Fender Bass Guitar (also known as the Bass VI) of 1961-1975. This updated version of the baritone classic features the traditional short scale (30") and is armed with Special Design Hot Jaguar® single-coil neck and middle pickups and a powerful JZHB humbucking bridge pickup. Other features include a "C"-shaped maple neck with 9.5"-radius rosewood fingerboard and 21 medium jumbo frets, five-way pickup switching, four-ply tortoiseshell pickguard (Three-color Sunburst and Black models) and three-ply parchment pickguard (Candy Apple Red model), two Jazz Bass® control knobs (volume, tone), vintage-style adjustable six-saddle bridge with "floating" tremolo tailpiece, and vintage-style tuners.
Fender American Vintage '58 Telecaster
A landmark year with its slimmer neck and improved twang.
The American Vintage ’58 Telecaster harkens back to early 1958, when the Telecaster graduated from its original U-shaped neck profile—a real handful—to a still-large but more comfortable D-shape for its maple neck. Other spot-on early-’58 touches are here too, such as a lightweight ash body, staggered bridge pickup pole magnets, solid steel “barrel” bridge saddles, a single-ply white pickguard, “top-hat” switch tip, flat-top knurled aluminum chrome control knobs and more.
1958 was an important year for the Telecaster because that’s when slimmer necks started appearing on the instrument, and when (in early-year models) string-through bridges with solid-steel saddles first showed up, magnifying the guitar’s prized signature twang.
Rather than just replacing the previous models with different ones, Fender have completely and comprehensively re-imagined the entire vintage-reissue concept—restoring original tooling dies, voicing new pickups, reformulating vintage colors and more—based on actual vintage guitars.
Squier Vintage Modified Jazzmaster Sunburst
An authentically styled Jazzmaster now joins the Vintage Modified family, with present-day touches including full, clear Duncan Designed™ pickups and a modern fingerboard radius. Squier’s new Vintage Modified Jazzmaster has the model’s most distinctive hallmarks, too - such as the dual-circuit switching and controls, floating-vibrato bridge and classically colorful Sonic Blue, Candy Apple Red, Olympic White and Three-color Sunburst finishes. Features include a maple neck with vintage-tint gloss finish, 9.5”-radius rosewood fingerboard with 21 medium jumbo frets and parchment dot inlays, tortoiseshell (Three-Color Sunburst and Olympic White models) and white-black-white pickguards (Candy Apple Red and Sonic Blue models), Jazzmaster single-coil pickups, circuit selector switch and pickup selector toggle switch, white Stratocaster®-style control knobs (lead circuit) and black disc knobs (rhythm circuit), vintage-style bridge and non-locking floating vibrato with vintage-style tremolo arm, vintage-style chrome tuners and chrome hardware.
Gretsch G5435 Electromatic Pro Jet Sunburst
The Electromatic® Pro Jet takes on a new identity and voice with hump-block fretboard inlays, stop tailpiece, and "Black Top" Filter'Tron ™ Pickups. The two-tone body color scheme (black or gold top with walnut stained back and sides), fabricated with an arched maple top chambered basswood body resonates true to "That Great Gretsch Sound". Classic appointments such as the Adjustomatic™ Bridge, threaded knurled strap buttons, "G" Arrow Knobs and Gretsch logo on pickguard are proudly featured.
Gibson Custom '58 Les Paul Standard VOS Iced Tea Flame Top
Handpicked Fantastic Iced Tea sunburst and flame top! The 1958 Les Paul Reissue VOS (Vintage Original Spec) Electric Guitar from the Gibson Custom Shop has the great features, tone, and looks that made the original '58 Les Paul a classic, but with a plain top for "workhorse" comfort and feel. Features a maple top, mahogany back, and one-piece set-in mahogany neck with rounded '50s neck profile, nickel plated hardware, and an original ABR-1 tune-o-matic bridge. The Gibson Burstbucker Pickups used are historically accurate "Patent Applied For" replicas with an airy tone and unbalanced coils. A medium output Burstbucker 1 is used in the neck position, while the Burstbucker 2 in the bridge position has a slightly hotter output. Both have unpolished magnets and non-potted coils like the original "Patent Applied For" pickups. Like all VOS (Vintage Original Spec) Series instruments, the 1958 Les Paul Reissue Plain Top VOS is handcrafted for comfort and playability in the Gibson Custom Shop. The construction, neck profile, hardware, and electronics are period accurate, and a special nitrocellulose finish treatment gives it the patina of a gently aged vintage guitar. Includes Gibson Custom Shop case, a certificate of authenticity.
