Identification Help - Tokai Strat

Back in May 2003 I purchased a Tokai Goldstar Strat from Songbird Music in Toronto before they closed their doors. It was labelled as a "Made in Japan" 57 Reissue. However it doesn't have any markings to identify it. No serial number, no model number. I haven't taken it apart because I dont know wha...

Any idea what these go for new?
Thanks


I have a red one of those with a Bigsby. Those are fakes...brought into Canada by Active. Sound OK ...but still a fake Tokai.

Mike

I'm in the same boat.....the Love Rock I bought 2 yrs ago from SongBird Music in Toronto has no serial number on it.

Guess I got duped ...and Songbird Music has gone bellyup !

Yes - thank you.

I think both of us are quite happy that we just bought a pair of Tokais that are a damn good bang for the buck.

JSD - let me ask a question. I have the box here and it says Made in China. Model DH-502 BL. It says Tokai on the headstock. Are these Chinese built Tokais ...or are they Chinese built copies of a Tokai. I guess my question is ...did Tokai build a bunch of these in China at some point....and why don...

Some bad news - the guitar is going back. Unfortunately it is damaged - appearing to have been dropped behind the strap pin on the body. There is a fair bit of damage - perhaps done while shipping. I called Mike - he is arranging pickup by UPS and will ship the replacement when the old one is return...

OK - I got some more information. My guitar showed up at lunch time ...so 24 hrs after payment..not bad at all. I was shocked to see it was actually sent by Mikes Music in Thorold. I have bought at least 3 guitars from him in the past - my Dillion DLP-675 and my other Tokai ES60. I called Mike up to...

Hello Ross -

Where are you getting the information about the model numbers?

Since I got one yesterday...I am also interested in tracking down additional information about it.

I have a Korean made Tokai ES-60 so I can't wait to compare the two.

I just picked one up ...the red one ...on eBay this afternoon. Paid a little more than I wanted (265) from a Canadian eBayer...but I am a Canuck also ...and I prefer to buy local to save on the shipping/duties and hassle. I'll let you know what I think of mine. When you mentioned the sodder ...what ...
