New to Tokai Strats so I have a few queries

I HAVE done a search on the forum but can't find all the answers I need!

I currently own a Fender MIJ 96 Strat 57Ri but thinking of this Silver Star 82 that I have spotted Ser No:202xxxx
I Love the big headstock, rosewood fretboard, dark 3 tone sunburst.

Here are the questions

3 screws holding the neck v 4 on the Fender

What radius has the Silver Star fretboard?
Neckshape

Has the Silver Star a one piece or two piece body, the photos I've seen it looks like a one piece, anyone?????
NIPPON SEN ASH BODY?

Craftsmanship? Fender vs Tokai

Finally soundwise, I love the vintage sound of my Fender but pup output is low, I have compared it with a Fender Big headstock, can't remember the year and mine sounded so thin against it

Thanks guys and Tokai gurus that tune in
All your help & info is greatly appreciated

I can talk about my own experience and I?m going to be objective: I prerfer '82 and '79 ss-36 Silver Stars over a '84-87 E series ST-55 Fender Japan CBS style either in sound and in fit and finish and Tokais were cheaper to me than Fender Japan. Maybe an individual guitar but that?s what I felt.Silver Stars sound is more live and necks different size and more easier to play to me.....Silver Star necks are more thin an the nut...
