Does this look an original mid 80's goldstar??

http://www.wanorak.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/tokai2

This guitar is in great condition for it's apparent age....but that makes me a bit worried if it is legit. Can anyone tell me if there is anything they notice about this guitar that looks right or wrong.

Also has anyone seen/owned an original goldstar in this colour

I appreciate any replies as I am considering buying

many thanks

never. but I won't care if it's original. it's the coolest color I've ever seen on the Tokai's.

Nope.....I've not seen this color before on a Goldstar. Might be a refinish. A peek in the pickup or neck cavity might tell the story. It the cavities have been sprayed as well, a little crafty surgery with an exacto blade should do the trick.
