Here's mine - a couple serial numbers off yours Echotraveler.



I ended up changing the trussrod cover...



I swapped out the stock tailpiece for a Wilkinson with an adjustable B/G piece - now it intonates very well with a 10-46 set.



I've never owned a brand new guitar in my entire life - this one needed some funk to make it looked lived in. Cool points for the sticker being 32 years old!

Two more:





This is a 1984 MAT 750 series prototype, the model was introduced in 1985. The h/s/h configuration was not available on the production models. The body color is copper chrome! The body is FRP (fiberglass reinforced plastic) but the neck is probably maple, the production models had FRP necks and also carbon fiber necks in 1986.

The 1985 700/750 series production models:

Here's my second MAT, it's a 1985 M-451 with a NOS CM-800 carbon fiber neck, the original FRP neck was not straight unfortunately:









It has locking Kluson tuners and a hotrail at the bridge.

Thanks Chris, but I'm still searching for that crock of gold
There was a really nice sunburst '80's breezysound with a B-bender for sale and I didn't make an offer -

I've got one of the new Sound Stream Presto series and another early Classical guitar on the way to me too

Here is my early 80s ST-80 Springy Sound. Interesting are the hang tags/warranty card that were in the case when I bought it. I'm not sure if pictures of these are posted anywhere so I'm including them. I think it's particularly interesting the license plate theme that says "reborn old TOKAI electric guitars." I thought reborn/reborn old was a Love Rock thing but maybe it applied to the strats too.

I'll let you know about it as soon as I get it Luis. It's a vintage sunburst Presto model and it's on its way to me from Poland

There is a Polish dealership now take a look.

It should arrive at some point this week, I hope

Ok Chris,thank you.I'm very curious about them.I have an add Mr. Adachi's courtesy, but I 've never seen any in person or had known any people trying one....I feel very interesting what Tokai says in his web about this new Sound Stream system.It seems they want to improve and being known by his own modelsagain,altough as we musicians are so conservative in general it 's not an easy task they have...Just remeber what happened to fantastic MAT series in the past.I whish Tokai being sucessfull this time .

Luis

The Presto Sound Stream arrived today

Looking at the SEB info that Ned has put up on the Tokai Guitars Catalog Page it is Natural Vintage in colour and HSS in pickup configuration

It's a lot heavier then I expected, but that's probably got a lot to do with the Mahogany centre.

The guitar is different to the HSS model shown as this has three controls, 1 Volume and 2 Tones.

First impression is that the pickups don't do justice to the body they are harsh.

It does has excellent sustain though

I'll upload photo's later

Here are the photo's of the Sound Series Presto

I noticed that the Humbucker has 4 wires andmust be wired for coil tapping. However only two have been wired up. The other two have just been covered with brown packaging tape.

There are no markings on the pickups whatsoever. Anybody got any idea if these are the stock pickups ?
