Per the chart here (http://www.tokairegistry.com/tokai-info/tokai-fender.html) its a 1984 model. 1984 was the only year for the Fender headstock with the Goldstar name (at least in the US).

Yeah, they?re very good, often better than US Fender, though that?s probably a matter of personal opinion. The body wood is probably Alder ? it won?t be US Ash, but could be the Japanese species called Sen.
