It honestly looks like you can see a faint line traversing down from the top center seam but hard to say.
The grain in the cavity looks continuous however but that could have just matched up perfectly.

http://i854.photobucket.com/albums/ab108/jkbird5959/Mobile%20Uploads/1496163464_zps8atotbva.jpg This shot almost looks like some flaming down the sides. Issue is, that router cut on those walls are not super smooth so that really obscures any visible flaming, ever if it were 100% conclusive that th...

Yeah those are Greco routes for sure, later 70s.
Which there is nothing wrong with that at all but not a Tokai body as their routes are rounded, Fujigen like.

Weird burst on it...no real gradient or feathering on the cherry...goes right from cherry to amber via almost an instant change.

That is for sure. Love how they serialized the neck tenons too but this would be eventually cut off once fitted. Wonder if they were matched or similar to how the Tele's and Strats were? I suspect they were random and used for dates and production batches but cool nonetheless. https://lh3.googleuser...

The dark spots? Not sure, almost looks like stain or glue spots. No glued piece on the back, that is a lip left from the router bit when rounding over the edge. I bought this as you see it, the seller said it was bought in 1980 directly from Tokai via some sort of build your own/seconds sale they ha...

Decal is homemade for sure, you can see the gold paint pen swirls in it.
There is another manufacturer who makes their necks with that headstock shape but I cannot recall it now.
Nice Strats man, I had an ST120 Limited in Natural that was awesome.

Mint Collection Greco Goldie Goodness

This is a pretty sweet ride, never seen one before and not in any catalogues that I have seen. No serial need to pull the pups and see what they are cause they sound pretty nice...very crisp and articulate. Sharp angled Mint Collection logo, Tokai made perhaps? Feels lacquered or an acrylic lacquer ...
