Tokai Blazing Fire
Hey Gavin, I don't know if you guys are still on vacation but this Tokai caught my eye, copy of a Talbo.

Description says, "The body isn't aluminum, it's Basswood"

Hi Ken

The irony of having a wooden-bodied Talbo is not lost on me, since the name Talbo is derived from Tokai ALuminium BOdy. I am aware of the Tokai Talbo Woody series (surely a prize example of an oxymoron), but this Blazing Fire edition would seem to be yet another wooden-bodied variation.

It's still quite a cool original design from a company largely known for their replicas, but for myself it doesn't have the appeal of the original metal-bodied Talbo.
