Does this look genuine?

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Vintage-Tokai-Stratocaster-Springy-Sound-1982-/320707361699?pt=UK_Musical_Instruments_Guitars_CV&hash=item4aaba5fba3#ht_500wt_1156

And if it is does the crack in the neck make it not worthwhile?

Looks authentic to me. Personally, I'm always cautious about guitars that the current owner doesn't trim strings on.... I'm superstitious that way.

That crack when viewed from behind pretty much split the headstock in half. He doesn't show much of the front with closeups but I can see that it has come all the way thru just above the nut. One good bump and I'd kiss that headstock goodbye with the string tension pulling on the one side of it.

The pics show the strings are looser than a clothes line
