Tokai Goldstar Made in Japan no serial number

Post by Puma1976 » Mon Jan 06, 2020 6:12 am

Good morning,
I recently purchased a Tokai Goldstar AST 50 guitar. There was no serial or the writing made in Japan. By sending the photos to the Tokai support, they confirmed to me that this is a production of the year 2000 made in Japan but released without a serial or written Made in Japan.
I have seen others made in the same period without serial and without production site writings. I wanted to know if any other person has already met these Tokai.
Thank you

Hi recent posts of mine in the vintage posts Guarding my recent Tokai acquire..... It’s a shame with all the counterfeit guitar is out there and the use of water slide headstock decals I can leave you a little unsure as to whether you got the real thing or not.

I have one of those too, surf green/mapleneck. I bought it new in 2001, AST50 - no serial and no "made in japan". Bought from a german shop that got their Tokais from Tokai UK.
