Great debate, but let's not get personal.

My own opinion is that - if I'd bought an ST guitar from 1980ish, I'd like clarification on why the pickups are different to every other Tokai from that er ...

Nice looking guitar.
Is it Japanese?
My way of measuring fretboard radius is simple - use a protractor or ruler to draw a circle (part of a circle) on a piece of paper. Alternatively, use a piece of ...

Buy it, man.
Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
It can only go up in price, once you've had your use out of it!
Just don't tell my wife I said that. 👍

I believe the neck is correct, but the body just doesn't seem right to me.
Am I getting sceptical in my old age?

I searched the registry and found my original entry from years ago.
It is around the 180th entry and I guess around 2004.
I see I joined here in August 2004 and was the 800th member.

Well, after my last post about intonation, I've uploaded a new video on the subject which I hope will start a bit of discussion.

I think the whole intonation issue is a compromise on a Strat.
You either have the guitar in tune perfectly with lower output, or slightly out of tune with the pickups nearer the strings.

No, the block logo was late 1982 and early 1983.
I bought my guitar in November 1983 and it's the like the one above.
I have adverts from October 1982 for Tokai Strats with the block logo.

Recently, I've pulled my Goldstar apart to clean and service it. It got cleaned and polished, chrome shined, truss rod/neck relief adjusted (that's a pain in the ass on its own, having to take the fli ...

They would sound better through a nice valve amp. Now I've managed to take a video, I'll be able to upload a couple more when I can take my time and actually think about the c ...

I hate looking and listening to myself, but here's a video of my two Tokai Goldstar Sound's.

Are you sure the JB120 came with a brass nut?
Even the catalogue looks like a white nut.

Looking at my 1983 spec sheet, the only difference between a JB80 & 120 is possibly the body wood.
On the 120, the body could be made of 'Castor Arabia' (Sen), Linden or Alder.
The JB80 says it' ...

The guitar is a ST50, like the sticker says.
I'd guess 1983.
Mine is similar, but has a 5 digit serial number.
