Hi everybody!

I'm about to purchase a 1981 Tokai Silver Star. It seems original to me, but I would like to have your confirmations, as some of you are "in the business" for quite a long time.

Specs: 3-tone sunburst ash body, black pickups and pick guard, rosewood fingerboard, big headstock with black Tokai logo and serial number: 1013474 (I checked Tokai Registry but couldn't find it). The owner says it has original pickups. Which is not original (I guess): Schaller machine heads, two push-pull knobs.

Here are some pics. I would ask for more pictures about the neck joint and the pickups if it facilitates the identification, but first I'll try to haggle.

(By the way, that extra pickup is for sale separately from the guitar.)
