Right-o

But that does not make them illegal in the USA.

Now, Cuban Cigars are illegal in the USA. You have one here and you can get fined $15,000. I don't think that applies to owning a Tokai.
I may be wrong, but I don't think they are illegal here.

Naaaa - Not that great

Jenton said: I encourage other Tokai fans to check some of these guitars out, as well. Naaa.....I disagree with Jenton - There's really no need for anyone to check the Silver Stars out. They really aren't anything that great. Love Rocks - Yeah, that's the ticket - Everyone go and check out those Lo...

Side By Side

Quattroste and Ned, I am going to do the same thing. I have three vintage strats (76 Blond, 82 Gold Smith Collectors, 79 Silver Anniversary) and two (soon to be 3) vintage 7okai Silver Stars - two 79's and a 78. I am going to set the switch and tone settings the same on each guitar and then record a...

Nice

Villager,

It will be. Ken is a great guy, and I have purchased two guitars from him.

Serials

Ian,

Indeed, they are 7 digit serial numbers.

9005696

Now if I could just get my hands on the 6,000 before.

Question About Dating Silver Stars

Ian, I am a big supporter of the Tokai Registry and in their dating section they have a great headstock guide. I believe that Ned's site is reliable. He has put a lot of work into it. Here is the URL to the headstock guide if you want to check it out: http://www.tokairegistry.com/tokai-info/tokai-fe...

Pre 80 Silver Stars

Again you see a lot of sellers advertising these as ?1978?, but as far as I know they weren?t made until early 1980?s
Ian - Great information on Tokai, but I believe that you are incorrect as far as dating Silver Star production.
:oops:

Absolutely Mint 1979 SilverStar Sunburst

Hello, I hope that everyone on this forum gets an opportunity to read this post. A few weeks ago I placed a post in the forums concerning my desire to purchase Silver Stars in good shape. I just really like them because Japanese quality is second to none. I was contacted by a gentleman in Tokyo that...

Models

Hello Villager, A lot of what is considered "best" is going to be based on your personal preference. I am a fool for 1978 through 1981 Silver Stars over anything made by Tokai. Just ask my wife. I have a solid black 79 SS with a maple neck that I would put up against any Stratocaster as far as tone,...
