I recently got a new Greco strat and am putting up these Tokai strats for sale. I also have a Tokai ST-80 but that will stick around for the time being.

ST-60: this guitar has led a charmed life
- Previously had been modified for humbuckers and locking tremolo before I bought it. Was restored to original with some wood added to the tremolo area.
- Refret done in Beijing, China last year. New frets are taller and wider than the old vintage ones
- PIO cap installed.
- Natural fretboard wear.
- Original routing was done by a caveman with a dull bone
- Original ?E? alnico pickups
- 2-pc body with very thin finish

ST-50 with replacement neck.
- I got this last year on Yahoo Japan for $200 CDN.
- Neck is nitro finished, medium jumbo frets, fairly fat like a 60s LP: 21 mm at 1st fret, 24 mm at 11th fret
- Body has been routed and shielded for a humbucker. Looks like a shop job, very clean
- Original ?U? alnico pickups.
- Nice natural relicing on the 2-pc body with some cracks in the poly (looks more like thin lacquer, but I'll go with the "poly" finish)
A slideshows are here with lots of pictures. Click the photos to launch:

PRICES:
ST-60 :$400 CDN plus actual shipping by Paypal gift.
ST-50: $175 CDN plus actual shipping by Paypal gift.
Both: $550 CDN plus actual shipping.

Note: no cases or gigbags, this is a cost-recovery sale.

Shipping should be about $110 CDN to US/Australia/Canada, slightly more to Europe. Both together would be around $160 CDN to US/Australia/Canada.

Send me a PM if you are interested.

It is more rounded C and not a sharp V by any means.

Both guitars are now sold pending payment, but I will be putting an Edwards relic strat up in a while that has a V profile.
