The Tokai Thunderbirds are made in Korea (in fact very recently the production moved to China i think). The Japanese Tokais are much better, but i have never seen a Japanese Firebird.

haha no no. thankfully none of that nonsense yet just a nice new upgrade. get a decent amp setup and a better bass. the old thunderbird neck dive issue has gotten to me really just gotten a bit fed up of it rather something more balanced which is annoying coz i really love the sound i get from it.

I used to get the same problem with my Robin Artisan. I now used a 'grippier' strap made from suade instead of nylon/leather. It's sits better on the shoulder now. Just a thought for you if you really like the sound and would keep it if you could live with it.

strap button

The Tokai Firebird is very poorly balanced because they placed the strap button at the side.

On my Firebird guitar i removed it and fitted it on the back roughly where the neck and the body join. It is much better balanced that way. I am not sure about the bass, but it probably works as well.
