I'm a Tokai freak, the early Robin's were made in the Tokai factory.

Tokai made some killer stuff... I have NO issues with Japanese craftmanship. I played one of the ESP made Raider III's for years; it was one of the best non Strat copy of a Strat ever.

This Texas built Savoy is an absolute monster! It really sings through my Mk II; the Rio Grande Texas BBQ set blows away the BB 1's in my Les Paul.

I have been wondering about those. Never had a chance to play a Robin, but I have heard only good things about them.
