exactly like mine.
That's the 1st Strat wich rings and sustains like that!
Even unplugged, she sounds full and woody... 8)
... and i love that "D" shaped neck, slightly wider and flatter than other Springy & Goldstar "C" necks

thanks!
In real, the contrast between the nitro aged pickguard and the body paint is better and looks stunning! :P
Like a vintage Fender from the 60's...

1984 Tokai TST-80 refin: back from the dead!

Hi all Tokai lovers! a few years ago, i bought this nice guitar from Japan, but she was in poor condition: scratched body paint, worn frets. nonetheless, she sounded amazing and ringed like no other strat i used to have before this (Fender strat standard us, a Silverstar & another Goldstar). Therefo...

TOKAI spaghetti logo changed approximately in 1983 for this block design.
So you have the same bass model from two different years: a 1983 and a 1984-85 jazz sound! :P
The block logo was used only one year, and they are quite rare compared to the 1984 logo.

yeah, that maple is beautiful! :P

frequently, you can find that kind of neck on the low specs model from the early 80's.
I had a 1985 black goldstar with a lovely flamed maple, even if it was a TST-50!

Congratulations,
Your Strat is beautiful! :D I dig that golden sunburst and the flamed maple.

I have the same pickup in my '84 goldstar TST-80. They sound really good and are very rare. You don't see alot of these VS-1 Tokai Strat.
I guess that your guitar is a keeper! :wink:

i forgot to say that mine has the final prospect bridge and deluxe stamped tuners. the sunburst on yours seems to be yellower than on mine.

congratulations Gabe! that's really a steal for a 80 in that condition! i paid mine almost the same price, but it needs a new fret job and body paint. but i think that's really the same guitar as mine: slab fretboard, 2 pieces lightweight alder body, black bottom dimarzio VS1 pickup, "D" shape neck....
