hey just bought this on ebay iv been well aware of Tokai and there Les Paul copies but didnt know to much about there strat copies i wonder if anyone can give me any information about this guitar?? obviously the pickups and bridge have been changed

apparently its from 1984
it has kluson style tuners so im guessing its at least a tst50
the finish is poly i think but its really thin and has aged really well
the pictures make it look red but its more orangey

EMG's are passive, so their fairly old.

The pups and trem are after market I think.

The guitar itself looks to be an 84 Goldstar... might need to look at the catalog to check the available colors to identify whether it's an TST40, 50, etc.

It's a shame that it's been so wanked over with those mods. If you like them, cool.... not my cup o tea though.

I'm no Goldy expert but I'm pretty sure it's a ST55 FO (Flamingo Orange).

Yep, I'm pretty sure FO is a non-standard colour so it's probably a ST55.

but the colour body code is OGM instead of FO and it looks too red for FO. Never seen that colour code before, not to say it is not genuine but may be a respray?

Hi Iain,

Maybe but he states it looks more orange than red unlike the pic's....but I've never herd of OGM either. The GM looks to be crossed out?

Sorry, I 'red' it the wrong way! It will be FO. Maybe they were going to do it Old Gold Metallic and changed their mind.

The trem looks like a copy of a washburn wonderbar
