I've found Tokai telecaster with Goldstar sound logo on headstock and it looks suspicious for me. I thought that goldstar was only strats.

Was there produced some goldstar telecasters?

Nope.... I'd stay away from it. Kind of deceptive photos too... no full front, back or full headstock shots.

Love this comment on the question asking about Goldstar or Breezy:

"I am not really a guitar expert but I am sure it is a genuine guitar"

I found that someone is selling this "Tokai Goldstar Sound" labels on ebay with info that is for tokai telecaster, it looks like some deceiver bought it and used without knowledge about tokai... Even so selling that labels makes me angry.

Anyone knew if there is possibility to contact ebay when you find such a fraud?

I think there was a batch of Goldstar Tele copies, probably some error with labels made by the Chinese contractor. I have seen a few others exacly like that one, they were in some stores and on ebay a couple of years ago. It looks like the Chinese ATE33 with the toploader bridge. I suppose anyone interested in confirming this guitar's origin could contact Bob at Tokai UK for a more definitive answer.
