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

Hi when I refretted mine I checked radius with radius gauge and it was standard 7 and a quarter

As for the nut when you are buying them you only get 2 choices flat bottom or curved. Also don't forget the nut width and spacing. Theres usually 2 types of strat types import and american.

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

Most people say 7.5", but 7.25" is correct for vintage Fenders (theoretically) and their copies.

fender sells replacement synthetic nuts but they are calibrated to a 9.5 inch neck radius, can these be used on 7.25 tokai? if not what is a good replacement?
