There are many with that serial format Gabe (and most likely that type of routing), especially in 1981, all of them are the lowest models available at that time

Hi guys,

Whilst I do agree with what you say, Jacco, my point was that by 1982 (which the sunburst would be) Tokai had stopped these type of serial numbers on Silverstar. I would accept the 1981 Black is probably original.

From all the 1982 serial#'s I've logged for SilverStar only, the smallest one is 2018228 and the highest is 2027971.
When I look at the serial numbering for most Silverstarsafter, they seem to be tens of thousands apart from all the other models. This would lead to a conclusion that Tokai SilverStar had their own serialisation pattern removed from the rest of the Models.

Your thoughts ???

Peter

Hi Peter,

I am Norway right now and didn't bring my laptop with me.
I have been logging Tokais up to 1985 before (now only up to 1981 for after 1981 too many new models were introduced, so can check when I get back.
I will PM you for I have found something else interesting.

Does anyone have a 1981 with the same serial number style, as in 110****? Perhaps we could compare pics of the innards to see if they're identical or not. The one from ebay is practically identical, but if anyone has any more pics, it'd be great to seen them.

In other news, after taking the guitar apart and cleaning it, re-polishing the body, crowning and polishing the frets, I broke one of the tuners while putting them back on. Should I just get some new Schallers to make it look like the originals?
