PostForum: Tokai Basses   Posted: Mon Jun 12, 2017 11:27 pm   Subject: Tokai Hard Puncher PB 80
Not totally clued up on basses, but that logo style was introduced in 1984. An '81-82 would have a spaghetti logo, an '83 the black block letter logo. By '86, the headstock shape was changed, though t ...

Does anyone know what exactly these pickups are?

They're out of an unspecified Greco Strat. They certainly look pretty similar to the Maxon Excels I've handled, but with three differences:

Shouldn't it have a stamp with the colour code in the body rout? There's only one wiew where it could possibly be discerned, but I don't see one. Otherwise, it looks good to me.

Do the pickups have staggered pole pieces? If so, they're at least externally identical to the set in my ca 1978 Tokai-made Fernandes FST-60: grey bobbins, no stamp, blue and black leads with plastic ...

Interesting links, thanks very much, Gabe.

The ones in the first link certainly look like normal Silver Star pups aside from the stamp, with the blue and black leads.

I guess they're not origin ...

Recently, I spoke to the owner of a 1982 (I believe, L038XX serial) Springy Sound. It appeared to be externally identical to my ST-60 from the same year, but it didn't have a model sticker.

Picked this one up recently, a really battered and and largely unoriginal Greco SE. I paid 345 USD for it (incl shipping) figuring I might use it as modding vehicle.

Turns out it's an excellent gu ...

I have one exactly like it, since it's 1985, it's technically a TTE-60 TM.
It's one of the few all-original guitars I've actually modded (non-destructively). The pickups were not to my taste, sort o ...

PostForum: Vintage (Older than 1985)   Posted: Thu Apr 02, 2015 1:26 am   Subject: Have a 1984 Tokai Goldstar need help- which model is it.
my input is a 1983 TST-60 YSOR.

Interesting, I thought '83's were supposed to be block logo Springys? Or did the script logo Goldstars appear during '83?
Also, the pre-86 routing you refer to, do ...

I have one exactly like it. The looks floored me, it plays great, but I didn't like the sound of the TEB pickups much, very brittle and icepicky, with 1 meg pots.

So now, it's actually the only all ...

Thanks!

According to the seller, the finish is poly, but I haven't done the acetone test myself.
As for the weight, I haven't any scales with enough accuracy, but subjectively, it feels pretty &q ...

Ok, new multimeter, here are some pickup measurements. They were taken using a short (1 m) lead in the ouput jack, I don't know how this affects accuracy. If there's a better way of measuring without ...
