Well, I have a late 80's AST-40 that some previous owner has rounded off. It looks ok, http://www.tokairegistry.com/images/visitors/ml_strat.jpg I'm not sure the previous owner cut it quite right - unless AST50's have a wider headstock with more room to round off the end correctly. For sanding i do...

RESHAPING HEADSTOCKS

I can't help noticing that the new headstock design on single coil Tokai models could easily be reshaped to the standard St**, Te** shape - the longer design rather invites this - Tokai being cheeky perhaps? - matron pass me the hacksaw!

Anyone had a go - what are the best tools etc?

UK stores

Two I can recommend from experience are S&J Music in Lichfield Staffs (near the Cathedral - good second hand selection and a Gordon Smith stockist) & Intersound on Narborough Road in Leicester so if you're passing through either town...

Tele neck

Or any decent vintage style Rosewood neck would be considered as I'm swapping parts around. I don't really need machine heads to be attached and I have around ?80 to spend

Thanks for looking 8)

potted pafs

My Mark II's have a waxy coating on the base of my pickups and therefore appear at least to be already potted to a degree - no problems with microphonic feedback at all.

Does anyone know if Tokai wax pickups on there Japanese models?

ES - 100

I tried out an new ES-100 recently - one of the finest guitars i've ever played - they had an idential Gibson in the shop for comparison and it was sweet too but it was ?600 more - the Tokai was overpriced at ?799 too and way out of my weekly guitar budget - I could cry/rob a bank sometimes.

The final price paid seems ok - I've seen some dodgy listings recently - a beat up Westone with an Ast neck listed as a 'rare Tokai Strat!' :roll:

Dead givaway

The body shape and headstock just do not look correct + the position or shape of the scratchplate is odd too - do/did Tokai make budget models?

Affordable Reborns

I thought Tokai Reborns would be more expensive than this?
