Hey everybody,

I got my handy on a Tokai Silver Star and out of curiosity I would like to get any infos about it, for example which year it was made in or which version this one is. From what I could find on several websites it's quite tricky to identify those, since the serial number doesn't really tell much. If I'm wrong, please correct me here. However, besides the serial number I couldn't find much else on the guitar itself which helps me with the identification. Any help is highly appreciated. I guess I'll find some experts here

Hi CT,

From what I can see in the pics this is probably a 1980 SS-36.
Everything about this looks original - except the serial number and decal which appear to be a replica. Point 1 is the serial# [ 1605] does not match the Year [ 7=1977].
Also pre-1980 SilverStars have Model numbers embossed into the last fret. Yours does not. Stamp placing, body wood [ Ash, not Alder], pickups and bridge are all consistant with a 1980 build.
A fine guitar, none-the-less.
Hope this helps

Peter
