PostForum: Tokai Guitars   Posted: Fri May 30, 2003 2:07 pm   Subject: Jap or Korean Goldstar?
The most obvious difference (apart from the split post tuners) is that the Korean guitar has two string "trees" and the Jap one has the more authentic (for the era) single B/E tree.

Most people buy Tokais to get a faithful replica of the guitars that Gibson and Fender once made, long ago. The nuances, brilliance, flaws in the timber (remedied these days by F&G with the use o ...

The new Japanese Goldstars have no serial numbers and the "wrong" headstock shape. The machine heads have the correct design but no Kluson logo.

However - the body is pukka 2-piece alder for a 50' ...

Well for fox's sake...I just bought a Goldstar and it plays like my first Fender Strat (Dec 64). Complete with choking if I dare to play above 14th fret, lively and bright everywhere else.
