Re: Tokai Goldstar Sound, post 2000? MIJ

missed the 2007 ref :oops: neck removed will show the same 7-34 so that it remains paired up with the body after the paint section. some years had no ser #'s but there are also fakes out there but yours doesn't seem like one to me. could be one of these then AST50 https://www.vintagejapanguitars.com...

How old are the strings? I've perked up the sound on many a guitar for friends by fitting a new set. Time isn't their best friend.
