|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?
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
