|1981 Cat's Eyes (Tokai) CE-600 Solid Top Acoustic Guitar (Martin Replica)
Sorry, this guitar is now SOLD
In the 1970s and 1980s, Tokai made Martin acoustic guitar replicas under the name "Cat's Eyes." These guitars were
extremely well-made alternatives to the expensive Martins for the Japanese. I think many of the older Cat's Eyes were
on par, quality-wise, with the Martins they copied. The higher-end models, like this CE-600, were made with solid
woods; top, front and back. It is not one of the most eye-catching acoustics in my collection, but the tone certainly is.
It has a bright tone and excellent mid-range. The bass is there, too, but the clarity of the mids and highs really stands
out when playing this guitar.
