Other Guitars Got a Tokai or Agile? Some other LP or ES Copy? What to discuss Strats and Teles? It doesn't have to resemble a Gibson to be discussed, but if it does that's even better.

I have a few 60's Japanese guitars and like them for what they are and don't expect them to play as well as my better guitars. I use them for slide. I have a single pickup Kingston that's a terrific slide guitar, just nasty as hell, with some overdrive added. It's that Hound Dog Taylor sound I like. My style of slide playing is strictly slash & burn like Hound Dog, so that guitar works very well in that role.

I also have a '58 Supro Belmont that I use for slide. I definitely prefer the cheaper stuff in my collection for slide also.

I have a few old Japanese guitars that are pretty much curiosities, but I like them all. I use a Kingston single pickup solidbody for slide, and it's far and away my favorite guitar for that purpose. It has the fattest neck in existence and no truss rod, but the neck is totally straight. It gets gigged regularly. I paid $185 for it on Fleabay. Another one, a Zen-On, has some amazing sounding Gold Foil pickups. The last one is a no-name that is featured in Frank Meyer's recent book on Japanese electrics.

I don't have really have any oddball guitars anymore, mainly mainstream axes. Well, I do have an old Gretsch BST, but it's really just a rock 'n roll guitar. And I have an Ibanez Musician but it is really a top of the line guitar. Most of the rest of my kids are Strats and Les Pauls.
