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.

The Power of suggestion!

Here in the UK, those guitars were actually sold in Woolworths Dept store! Cheap and cheerful, you had to work on them to make them play. And yes, going for silly money these days because folks have been conned by hype and the media into believing any guitar must be good/valuable - if it's old!
The only thing going for them is the very rudimentary low gain "gold foil" pickups do have a clarity you just don't hear in more advanced designs.
