tokai tst50 right? Ast has a different headstock if i'm correct? This one has a proper fender shape. Nice guitar :D

Could be, but I have not yet found a tst50 model with matching headstock.
I know from contacting Tokai that they made a huge jump in there model number in 2016 (for the LP's)
So I think in general tst50 = AST96
but I could be wrong :)

I have seen 55 with matching headstock on this forum.
ast has different headstock, specwise they probably are close.

It feels like 9,5 radius to me. More rounded then my Tokai love rocks.
Took some time to get used to, but damn what good guitars Tokai (still) makes

Thank! Are the frets medium jumbo or vintage frets?
