Kluson type tuners will cover all the old screw holes that were used for the Gotoh budget tuners except for part of one hole on the high E tuner. I replaced the Gotoh tuners on my AST-40 Goldstar with ...

If you look at the end of the neck and in the control cavity you'll probably find the typical Tokai codes (like 6=8 for example). Tokai made the Hondo Professional guitars so the quality should be exc ...

It definitely looks like a 1984 MAT M-451. I have one from 1985:

It's probably a ~1985/86 AST-40 Goldstar, I have one of those and it's a great guitar but not a 50's or 60's replica like the "50" and higher models. Both the maple neck and rosewood fingerb ...

I'm trying out a Hot Stack in the bridge position on a Strat, & I'm not sure if I like it or not. I've never seen them used in the neck or middle positions though. Clearly they work for you thou ...

Mike,

Quite correct about the screw holes, most people don't realise that Tokai RW board models are 64 copies, whilst most Fenders are 62 copies. Nice guitars you have there - what are the pickups ...

It seems like Tokai used different pickguards on the AST/TST-40 models. They were not exact replicas of any model year like the "50" and better models. If you look at my AST-40 Tokai used a ...

I remember those from the second half of the 80's. There were a number of tele models available with the pointy Jackson style headstock. One of the models only had a neck humbucker and a fixed bridge. ...

Well, everything except the serial number looks ok to me. It's probably a TST-50 that got an AST/TST-40 neck plate by mistake. The six digit serial number was used on those. The serial number on my AS ...
