The springy wont be nitro finish, if it was it's have E pick ups not U, most of the block logos were 50's, but still a great guitar. The neck should be a clear and decisive V shape for an 80, it looks like a normal C shape. A nitro test using acetone wont be conclusive as even the st-80's have such ...

Hi Walker. I'm not a bass player myself but I have a mate with 6 Tokai basses. Post a picture and dating will be easy, that serial alone isn't enough. What I can say is just build a spare scatch plate and load it with quality. I love Tokai, but pups are easily upgraded, but keep the Tokai stuff asse...

Tokai tele neck? on vintage fender.

There is a Fender Telecaster on ebay UK at the moment, I had spotted his "69" strat he has for sale and checking out his other items I was amazed to see a 67/68 Tele and a close up of the neck date which is 1=11, isn't that just a Tokai unique code system or have I been wrong all these years. Someon...

Nitro Cellulose Finish on Vintage Tokai's.

Tokai's use of Nitro on the ST-80's is well known, but as of yet I have yet to see an ST nitro finish melt away when acetone is applied. By melt away I mean it can leave you in no doubt that the finish is like the stuff fender used. On an 1981 "80" bass it melts away like goop, 1981 LS-100 the finis...

The Old Red LS100 from 1981/2 has the best nitro finish I have seen on a tokai. After seeing very little effect after applying acetone on many springy's and Reborns I was amazed at the ease with which the nitro comes off. The Nitro makes the guitar an absolute piece of beauty, the red has aged to a ...

online catalogs

Hi, I used to access a japanese website that had many japanese guitar catalogues online for free but have lost the link. Anyone got the web address for the site I'd be most grateful.
