Sounds awesome cranked. Loses quite a lot of dynamics when the guitar volume is rolled off though. Acoustically it is quite loud, but sounds full rather than shrill.

Don't suppose you can point me ...

I hope you good folks can help me identify and date this Burny LP jr. I have read loads of forums about dating Burnys and couldn't find an answer. The guy who sold it to me was sure it was Japanese an ...

There's loads you can do. I did all of the 'basic' mods BillM recommends, plus the twin stack mod and audio taper volume and reverb. The basic mods alone are supposed to do the trick - that's why they ...

Just in case anyone's interested, I did a few of the mods and the result is... great clean tones, loads of extra bass, but... there seems to be a lack of treble and the overdriven sound is now woolly ...

I've noticed the difference in body contours and thickness of paint too. I posted about it a really long time ago but nobody concurred. Maybe it is not a consistent difference that can be put down to ...

PostForum: Tokai Sightings & eBay Alerts   Posted: Thu Jul 29, 2010 2:37 am   Subject: Ebay - "Goldstar Strat, never used" - Really?
Shape of the truss rod plug looks wrong to me - it may not even be a plug: could be headstock-end access. Also the logo is very reflective. Looks fake to me.

I also note with suspicion that the de ...

Did the very early Springies with the narrow neckplates have a serial on the neckplate? Never seen one in the flesh myself... as this one is early enough to have the st-60 stamped in the butt of the n ...

I'm selling my modded Boss DS-1. Great pedal but seldom used since I got into rangemaster clones, and now has to go to make way for a BYOC tremolo. Offers considered.

Anyone here tried any of the Billm mods on their Blues Junior?

I'm tempted to fiddle, but slightly put off by the warnings about the PCB being delicate and having to use a decent soldering iron wi ...

At some point somebody has added an aftermarket locking nut to it. This was a popular but ugly mod in the late 80s/early 90s. Does it have a normal strat-style trem with 'Final prospec' stamped on the ...

It also had truss rod adjustment at the headstock end and the shape of the heel is rather unfefined - doesn't look like Tokai workmanship to me. Even the shape of the headstock is not quite right I th ...

PostForum: Tokai Guitars   Posted: Fri Apr 30, 2010 2:18 am   Subject: what is the neck radius of goldstars?
Hi when I refretted mine I checked radius with radius gauge and it was standard 7 and a quarter

Yes, 7.25 is right I think. I was wrong when I said 7.5.

AFAIK, the radius is 7.5 and the nut is plastic. Knowing Tokai, this may not be consistent over the years.

This has been discussed before, and I think the answer is no - especially if you've got the older style trem where the block and baseplate are cast as a single unit...
