Hi guys,

Time for an update. Looking back on the last 6 years I realise a lot of what we thought then needs to be updated.
Every Year since 2007 I've been buying close to 20 old Tokais of variou ...

Hi guys,

I'm going with a 1987 TTE-70 PR - at least.
There MAY be a matching code stamp under the front pickup.
At any rate, no TTE-80 was ever available in Paisley. Nunca.

Hi guys,

Yeah it is a 1980 ST-50 SpringySound, 'U' pups, 'Deluxe' tuners and Final Propec saddles.
It will be late 1980 as the serial numbers finished around 0016800 for 1980.

The bottom flyer reads " The Quality Musical Instruments of the World".
This was the flyer for Goldstar Sound.
This appears to be a frankenstrat as all the features are mixed from d ...

Unscrew the control plate and lift out. There should be a code insi ...

Hi guys,

I'll go with LS-60.
The 2 piece top and open zebra pups points to an LS-60.
1982 LS-50's had 3 piece tops and double cream pickups.
All the LS series from LS-50 - LS-75 were finished in ...

..... so that is a very accurate Translation.
I am not sure what Year the translation is from though? Probably 1982 or later.
1981 had 3 fretless JB models JB-80, JB-90 and JB-120 but by 1982 it had ...

Hi Kmax,

The warranty card with serial# shows it is definately original.
This was however made in the Nagano factory, not Hamamatsu.
The serial# style, routing, neck style and pickups are all N ...

Hi Goat,

No, the 4-bolt SS-60 was made through to 1985 when it ceased production. 1982 was the only Year the SS-60 4-bolt had the spaghetti logo. Later Years have the script logo.
That's what mak ...

Hi Nossnevs,

That is gold, right there.
SO the stamp 6=10 YS A W tells me the finish is Vintage 3T Sunburst and it was made in June of 1981 during the 10th production run.
The 'A' stamp on both ...

. . .and you would have been wrong, Hodge.
1981 SS-60 would be a 1976 replica with bullet truss rod, 3 bolt neck and a 7 digit serial# on the headstock.
1982 was when Tokai went to Fender style seri ...

Hi 'Goat'

So the spec for this model was an Alder body with poly finish. It was essentially a SpringySound in terms of body, routing,
electronics, hardware and finish but had a one-off style neck ...

Hi Nossnevs,

The tuners are correct for the style of Bass that Tokai is replicating. The lower Model bass' have a 3-screw clockwise turn. Yours being a 4 screw counter turn means it is a high end M ...
