The Tokai ES198 is the classic stop-tail electric-spanish design made famous by early rock'n'roll and blues musicians, with the addition of the iconic 1962 style block inlays.
Constructed using traditional methods, from the highest quality materials and parts, the ES198 provides guitarists with the unique balanced tone only a semi-hollow electric-spanish design can deliver.
No small vintage detail has been overlooked on the ES198 - accurately reproducing the tone and feel of one of the most influential guitar models of all time.
