I would have no reason to doubt this guitar at first glance. The block logo is legit, that was a 1983 feature only. TST-50 isn't the top of the line but I bet you'll find it nice.

Good luck.

look at the Tokai Registry site for more details, in FAQ, under "how old is my fender replica" or whatever it says. There is a pic of a guitar with the identical headstock to the one you posted. This was their 'transition" logo from the spaghetti style to the later style. I consider block logo tokais sort of the "no-caster" of the Tokai world, if that makes any sense (if you know your Fender history!)

Good luck with it.
