The scratch guard is not original and the knobs and pup covers look a ...

Nothing like any Tokai markings Ive seen, I think the guitar is a Lemon I'm sorry to say. If you bought it as a Tokai then you should be entitled to a refund, as its not as described.

Saying all th ...

I think you payed over the odds, but maybe thats what you have to pay in Poland for a Tokai. I cant help much with pups, I put a Bare knuckle Sinner pup in the bridge of my ST50, I love it.

What I can tell is it an ST40 looking at the tuners, low end Japanese model. Brazillian rosewood? no idea how they came to that conclusion. Most people change the pups as most think they are pretty th ...

Hiya,

For a start its not a Goldstar! At best it is a custom or super edition. We need more pictures, especially underneath the pickguard and base of the neck to see if there is Tokai stamping.
