Great info. Thanks.

Hi LowWatt

Silverstars are a very under-rated model so buying these at a good price should not be hard. Without photos it's very hard to identify them both so here are some b ...

But concerning this Tokai: the neck says Goldstar and it has the E-stamped pickups. I' ve seen several remarks at this forum that there are no Goldstars with E-PU' s. Could it be a Goldstar neck with ...

Mine has the E stamped pickups

Interesting.... again the orthodox opinion seems to be that Goldstars don't have E pickups. Maybe it's just most Goldstars that don't! It probably wouldn't be too har ...

This one looks identical to my Goldstar, which is from 1984 and I believe an ST-80. Mine has the E stamped pickups and all the soldering looks original. I'm not sure how to tell the difference betwe ...

Enjoy it. I've got the same model in black. It smokes every non-custom shop fender I've ever played (i worked in a major music store for 5 years and I've played a lot) and even some of the custom sh ...

Does (or has) Tokai make anything for Gretsch-like guitars? I've never seen any, but I'm after a Gretsch, can't afford a hi-end one and I'm wondering if there is an alternative to the Gretsch Electro ...

thanks for the info. It still has the "Made in Japan" sticker and it has the Deluxe stamped tuners and Final Prospec saddles. It definitely is a one-piece neck.

What distinguishes the T ...

I'm a new Tokai guy, just got an '84 Goldstar Sound copy of a 50's strat with E-series pickups (serial #1991) . I've been told that you can see the exact model number when you remove the neck.
