Demo of the Tokai FB40

A bluesy demo of my new Tokai FB40. This made in china copy of the über rare Firebird I is a good surprise and don’t need any upgrade, just a good setup. The amp is my silverface Fender Princeton reverb. At first, I’ve played a rythm track with the tokai and amp, then I used a boost (Ballast Trouble Booster) to play the lead with the same settings. With the bass track, it was done in one hour. Btw, yesterday I went to see ZZTop, I bet you can hear it “a bit” here …

About Doc Loco


  1. Très bon ce p’tit blues doc… Et cette firebird de chez Tokaï m’a l’air bien bonne!!

  2. Oui, une très bonne surprise pour le prix – bon, le vernis est un épais poly et il y’a quelques minimes imperfections de finition, mais elle se joue et sonne impeccablement. Comme les Firebirds I (j’insiste sur le I, c’est celle-là qui est rarissime) sont introuvables sauf en custom shop, pour +/- 300€, pourquoi se priver? Je pensais mettre un micro Lollar mais celui d’origine est vraiment très bien en fait (clair et peu puissant, à peine plus qu’un single fender, mais plus chaud et charnu, et silencieux).

  3. I don’t care for the guitar much, but Doc you sure know how to play the blues! Kudos!
